Asian stocks fell, with the regional benchmark index trimming a fifth weekly advance, as Japanese shares dropped amid disappointing earnings. European equity-index futures rose while gasoline rebounded.

The MSCI Asia Pacific Index slid 0.7 percent to 135.22 as of 7:04 a.m. in London, paring its climb in the week to 0.2 percent. Japan’s Topix index plunged the most since June 13. Euro Stoxx 50 futures climbed 0.6 percent and contracts on the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index added 0.1 percent. The yen advanced a second day against the dollar, while the won rose 0.4 percent.

Gasoline futures climbed 0.2 percent, snapping a two-day loss, and gold added 0.2 percent. Samsung Electronics Co., the largest smartphone maker, posted disappointing profits and Advantest Corp. had a wider-than-estimated loss. Of companies on MSCI’s Asian gauge that have reported results this month, 57 percent exceeded profit estimates and 52 percent missed revenue forecasts. China ordered companies to cut production capacity this year. Federal Reserve policy makers meet next week, and the U.S. will report on economic growth and employment.

Good day and happy trading!
