    TAIPEI, May 31 (Reuters) - Taiwan stocks were flat to weaker

10,000 mark in recent sessions. 
    It closed down 0.1 percent on Friday. Taiwan's financial
markets were shut Monday and Tuesday for a public holiday.
    The electronics subindex         slipped 0.1 percent, while
the financials subindex         lost 0.5 percent.
    Big-capped tech shares TSMC           and Hon Hai Precision
          were down a respective 0.5 percent and 1 percent.
    However, container shipping firm Evergreen Marine          
was up 1.4 percent and display maker Innolux           was up
0.4 percent.
