Nikkei eases in choppy trade; real estate, financials drag

TOKYO, May 14 (Reuters) - The Nikkei share average edged
down on Tuesday, after two gaining days, as interest
rate-sensitive sectors such as real estate and financials
succumbed to signs of rising long-term interest rates.
     Investors showed some caution over the rapid pace of the
preceding rally, with the Nikkei shedding 0.2 percent to
14,758.42, moving away from the 5-1/2 year closing high of
14,782.21 reached on Monday. 
    The broader Topix fell 0.1 percent to 1,230.80.
