Asian-Pacific stock markets, including Japan's Nikkei 225 Index , China's Shanghai Composite Index , Singapore's FTSE Straits Times Index, South Korea's KOSPI Composite Index, and Australia's S&P/ASX 200 Benchmark Index, experienced a dip today. Despite the broader market downturn, the Hong Kong Stock Exchange remained closed.

While the overall market was in decline, there were some notable exceptions. Shares of Shiseido, a cosmetics firm listed on the Nikkei 225 Index, along with pharmaceutical firms Daiichi Sankyo and Astellas Pharma, managed to swim against the current. Their stocks rose by 3.3%, 2.9%, and 2.7% respectively.

On the other end of the spectrum, Pacific Metals, a steel production company, experienced the day's largest share drop with a fall of 4.8%. Integrated oil/gas firm ENEOS Holdings and semiconductors company Advantest Corp also faced a tough day with their stock value declining by 3.0%.

The contrasting performance of these companies amidst an overall market decline illustrates the diverse dynamics at play in today's Asian-Pacific stock markets.
