TOKYO, April 30 (Reuters) - The Nikkei stock average dipped
in early trade on Tuesday, although it is heading for its best

financial markets earlier this month with sweeping stimulus
measures.
    The Nikkei eased 0.2 percent to 13,863.18, while the
broader Topix index gained 0.3 percent to 1,165.01.
