Nikkei edges up as cyclicals back in favour, but ends week down

Fri Oct 5, 2012 2:15am EDT

TOKYO, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei average hit a
one-week high on Friday, lifted by gains in some battered
cyclical stocks, but Nikon Corp took a tumble on
reports of poor earnings and carmakers were sold off on concern
about plummeting sales in China.
    The Nikkei edged up 0.4 percent to 8,863.30, but was
down on the week by a whisker, while the broader Topix index
 picked up 0.2 percent to 737.13.
