Asian shares mixed after soft data

- +

HONG KONG — Asian markets were mixed Thursday despite positive cues from Wall Street as traders digested a slew of soft data including a weaker-than-expected report on retail sales in the world's largest economy. 

Investors were also focused in late trade on eurozone growth data, with recovery in the crisis-battered region appearing to stall in the second quarter, as the main growth engines, France and Germany, ground to a standstill.

Tokyo closed up 0.66%, or 100.94 points, to 15,314.57, Sydney gained 0.61%, or 33.78 points, to 5,548.5 while Hong Kong lost 0.36%, or 88.98 points, to 24,801.36 and Shanghai dropped 0.74%, or 16.41 points, to 2,206.47.
