Asia Markets: Asian markets get boost from Apple’s strong earnings

Asian equities continued to rise Wednesday, helped by strong results from Apple, though Sydney shares eased as commodities prices pulled back.

The stock market in Taiwan, home to a number of Apple’s suppliers, was the strongest performer in the region. That market’s strength in the past year has been in large part Apple-driven, thanks to the company’s results as well as expectations about how its coming iPhone will fare.

The Taiex Y9999, +0.63% rose 0.7% with iPhone assembler Hon Hai 2317, +1.29% climbing 1.3% and lens maker Largan Precision 3008, +4.18% jumping 3.7% to another record high.
