Asian shares were mixed on Monday, with positive Chinese manufacturing figures boosting morning markets until profit-taking sent Hong Kong and Shanghai into the red in the afternoon. 

The early purchasing managers index (PMI) figures from banking giant HSBC added to an upbeat morning for the region, which was already in positive territory after another record close on Wall Street.

Tokyo extended a recent uptrend, adding 0.13%, or 19.86 points, to end at 15,369.28. Sydney gained 0.62%, or 33.8 points, to 5,453.3 and Seoul rose 0.35%, or 6.85 points, to 1,974.92.
