Nikkei dips as political uncertainties blunt risk appetite

TOKYO, Aug 18 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average dipped on Tuesday, slipping further away from a near-six-month peak touched last week, as political uncertainties around the world sapped investors' risk appetite.

Nikkei share average lost 0.20% to 23,051.08, inching away from its Friday peak of 23,338, its highest level since late February. The broader Topix ended up 0.06% at 1,610.85.

The yen's rise fuelled profit taking in a market saddled by its already high valuation, rising U.S.-China tensions and uncertainties over U.S. fiscal stimulus.

"The earnings season is over and they weren't really supportive of a strong market rally we have seen. The market has been just bolstered by rally in Wall Street shares," said Masato Kogure, leader of execution group for institutional sales at Tokai Tokyo Securities.

Net profits of listed Japanese firms fell more than 50% from a year earlier in the previous quarter, with only pharmaceutical and food companies expecting profit growth in the financial year to next March, analysts at Okasan Securities said in a report.

The Topix traded at 16.8 times profit forecast by analysts, near the highest level in a decade.

Some market players also said the news that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe underwent a medical check-up in hospital on Monday raised worries about his health issues and weighed on the sentiment given his reflationary policy has been a major support for the market.

Airline shares tumbled 1.7% after they reported weak passenger traffics during the "Obon" holiday period earlier this month due to a rise in domestic COVID-19 infections.

Banks fell 1% as U.S. bond yields slipped while the yen's rise against the dollar hit exporters, including automakers that surged earlier this month.

Mazda Motor dropped 2.3%, while auto parts maker Denso shed 2.2%.

Bucking the trend, the index of Mothers start-up shares climbed 3.4% to its highest level since October 2018, on buying by individual investors. (Editing by Rashmi Aich and Amy Caren Daniel)
