TOKYO -- As investor money ebbs from emerging markets amid a rising dollar, it is flowing into Japanese equities as an alternative to U.S. assets, propelling the benchmark Nikkei Stock Average to a 27-year high.

The Nikkei Stock Average gained 0.5% on Monday to close at 24,245 -- its highest finish since November 1991. Analysts are predicting the rally will last at least through the end of the year.
