Chief executive officers of some of the largest US companies have become less optimistic about their business prospects, suggesting economic growth is likely to remain muted.

[TOKYO] Tokyo shares opened higher on Tuesday, following an upturn on Wall Street after a top Federal Reserve official argued against hiking interest rates quickly.

The Tokyo Stock Exchange's benchmark Nikkei 225 index rose 0.58 per cent, or 96.62 points, to 16,769.54 in the first few minutes of trading. The Topix index of all first-section issues was up 0.47 per cent, or 6.22 points, at 1,329.32.
