Nikkei jumps 1.6 pct to 6-1/2-month closing high on weaker yen

TOKYO, Nov 22 (Reuters) - Japan's Nikkei stock average
jumped 1.6 percent to a 6-1/2-month closing high on Thursday,
boosted by gains in automakers and electronics companies on
expectations that a sharply weaker yen will boost their
earnings.
    The Nikkei ended 144.28 points higher at 9,366.8. It
advanced 3.8 percent this week, its second-straight week of
gains.
    The broader Topix climbed 1.2 percent to 776.43 to a
four-month closing high.
    Japanese financial markets are closed on Friday for a public
holiday.
