Apple, Wall Street gains spur advances in Malaysia, Singapore stocks

SINGAPORE (Nikkei Markets) -- Shares in Malaysia and Singapore rose Wednesday as Asian stocks extended their recent rally, tracking overnight Wall Street gains.

U.S. stocks rose Tuesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average hitting a record high for a fifth straight day. Global markets have not been affected by the recent U.S. political uncertainty over the healthcare bill, which has dragged the dollar index down to multi-month lows. Investor focus has remained on corporate earnings as a number of companies posted better-than-expected profits.
