Tokyo stocks fall for 5th day on worries about Portuguese bank

TOKYO (Kyodo) -- Tokyo stocks fell Friday for the fifth consecutive trading day, its longest losing streak since November 2012, as a risk-averse mood prevailed because of concerns about the financial health of Portugal's leading bank.

     The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average ended down 52.43 points, or 0.34 percent, from Thursday at 15,164.04. The broader Topix index of all First Section issues on the Tokyo Stock Exchange finished 4.06 points, or 0.32 percent, lower at 1,255.19.

     Major decliners included utility, marine transport and brokerage shares.
