TOKYO, Nov 26 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei share average rose
1 percent in early trade on Monday and may test a seven-month
high, supported by climbs on Wall Street and expectations that a
weaker yen will boost earnings for exporters.
    The Nikkei added 94.11 points to 9,460.91, and if it
touches the 9,500 mark, it will be the first time since April.
The broader Topix gained 1.0 percent to 784.02.
