Asian equities mostly rise taking cue from Apple and regional data

On Wednesday, Asian markets mostly rose, with market sentiment influenced by Apple earnings.

Japan's Nikkei 225 gained 0.35%. Meanwhile, Australia’s S&P/ASX 200 stood still, with moderate revenues in the industrials sub-index compensated by a steeper dips in the energy as well as materials sub-indexes.

In Hong Kong the Hang Seng Index soared 0.57%, the Shanghai Composite leapt 0.13%.

Equities in the world's most valuable company inched up 6% after hours, reaching a record of more than $159. It definitely helped to take the company’s market capitalization to more than $830 billion.

Besides this, Australia posted that June’s building approvals headed north 10.9%, supplanting a 1.5% revenue observed month-on-month.

Overnight, Wall Street concluded at record maximums for the second day in a row, neglecting dismal economic data because market participants paid attention to gains from tech-heavyweight Apple Inc due after markets close.
