Asian stocks mostly higher following U.S. inflation jump
Shares were mostly higher in Asia on Friday after the S&P 500 index notched another record high despite a surge in U.S. consumer prices in May. Shanghai fell, Tokyo was flat, while shares rose in Hong Kong, Seoul and Sydney. On Thursday, Wall Street logged gains while bond yields mostly fell despite the much-anticipated report showing consumer prices rose 5% in May, the biggest year-over-year increase since 2008 and more than economists had expected.
