Taiwan stocks rise; industrials, electronics up

Tue 7th March, 2017 3:10am
TAIPEI, March 7 (Reuters) - Taiwan stocks rose on Tuesday 
buoyed by industrial and electronic shares, while Asian shares 
traded flat tracking overnight Wall Street losses.  
    A lack of detail on U.S. President Donald Trump's proposals, 
his isolationist stance and setbacks in filling his Cabinet have 
caused some investors to question whether the post-election 
rally has run its course as stock valuations become stretched.

 1506.TW  jumped as much as 10 percent, while Jye Tai Precision 
Industrial Co Ltd  6165.TW , an electrical components and 
equipment manufacturer, surged as much as 9.9 percent.   
   In terms of currencies, the euro slid on fears that an 
anti-European Union candidate may be elected France's next 
president after a former French Prime Minister ruled out an 
election run.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL5N1GJ1LF
