Tokyo stocks higher in morning after 3-day fall, tracking U.S. gains

Tokyo stocks were higher Monday morning, tracking advances on Wall Street late last week, while investors scooped up battered shares following the market's three-day losing streak.

The 225-issue Nikkei Stock Average rose 149.45 points, or 0.58 percent, from Friday to 26,085.07. The broader Topix index was up 18.63 points, or 1.01 percent, at 1,863.67.

On the top-tier Prime Market, gainers were led by electric power and gas, wholesale trade, and service issues.
