Nikkei rises for 11th day on hopes for better shareholder returns

TOKYO, May 29 - Japan's Nikkei share average rose for an eleventh day on Friday on hopes for better shareholder returns, but gains were limited as investors stayed cautious against imminent profit-taking. The Nikkei average ended 0.1 percent higher to 20,563.15 points, hitting another 15-year closing high. The 11-day winning streak is the longest since February 1988. For the week, it gained 1.5 percent, and for the month, it rose 5.3 percent, the fifth straight month of gains.
