TOKYO, May 28 (Reuters) - Japanese stocks rose for a fifth

much as $3.6 billion by issuing new shares. 
    The benchmark Nikkei average ended 0.2 percent
higher to 14,670.95.
    Mitsui Fudosan dropped 4.7 percent and was the second-most
traded stock by turnover.

while the new JPX-Nikkei Index 400 advanced 0.2
percent to 10,926.66.
