Taiwan shares close down 0.16% (update)

Taipei, April 28 (CNA) Taiwan shares closed down 16.29 points, or 0.16 percent, at 9,956.83 Tuesday on turnover of NT$116.64 billion (US$3.83 billion). The Taiwan stock exchange benchmark weighted index, the TAIEX, opened at 10,004.65 points with a continuation of Monday's strong buying that had pushed the index past the 10.000-point mark for the first time in 15 years. The index fluctuated between 10,014.28 and 9,918.01 before finishing at 9.956.83 points, dragged down slightly by weakening Apple concept stocks. The bellwether Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. (??) and Largan Precision Co. (???) led a drop in technology stocks, including casing maker Catcher Technology Co. (??) and iPhone assembler Pegatron Corp. (??). But financial stocks, which rose 0.8 percent, helped prevent the benchmark index from sliding further during Tuesday's trade. (By Tien Yu-pin and Elizabeth Hsu)
