Nikkei Asia300 index little changed as markets consolidate after six-day gains

HONG KONG (Nikkei Markets) -- Asian stocks outside of Japan ended little changed on Tuesday amid lackluster cues from the U.S. and as markets consolidated following a six-day rally.

The Nikkei Asia300 index rose less than 0.1% to 1,277.79. Index heavyweight Samsung Electronics added 0.4% after Samsung Pay announced a partnership to allow users to pay via PayPal. India's ITC plunged 12.6% to 284.60 rupees, its biggest fall in over two-years, after brokerages downgraded the cigarette maker following an increase on some levies on cigarettes. Korea Aerospace Industries slipped 6%, extending recent losses, after the county's prospector launched an investigation into alleged corruption charges related to defense procurements.
