    TAIPEI, May 8 (Reuters) - Taiwan stocks rose on Monday, in
line with broader Asia, as investors breathed a sigh of relief
after centrist Emmanuel Macron won the French presidential
election.

the electronic subindex         gained 0.4 percent. 
    However, the transportation index         lost 0.5 percent,
while the construction index         slipped 0.2 percent.
    Among actively traded shares, Catcher Tech          , an
electronic component manufacturing company, rose 2.7 percent.  
    The Taiwan dollar          strengthened T$0.039 to T$30.143
against the U.S. dollar.
