A man looks at an electronic board showing market indices outside a brokerage in TokyoBy Lisa Twaronite TOKYO (Reuters) - Asian shares dipped on Thursday after lower crude oil prices dented Wall Street, as markets waited to see if U.S. employment data could put the Federal Reserve on track to hike interest rates. "This is setting up to be another difficult session for Asia-Pacific markets," Angus Nicholson, market analyst at IG in Melbourne, wrote in a note. "The ASX in particular looks in for a rough day after commodities took a battering overnight." MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan was down 0.2 percent in early trading, while Australia's S&P/ASX 200 index was down 0.2 percent.

Apple tax windfall could help ease Ireland's debts says S&P

By Abhinav Ramnarayan LONDON (Reuters) - A European Commission ruling that Apple Inc should pay Ireland up to 13 billion euros of back-dated taxes could help the country cut its debt significantly but may undermine its government, Standard & Poor's told Reuters on Wednesday. The European Union's executive arm ordered Apple to pay the bill on Tuesday, ruling the iPhone maker had received illegal state aid. Although Apple and Dublin have said they will contest the decision, economists have nevertheless been trying to calculate the possible impact on Ireland's finances.

By Sudip Kar-Gupta LONDON (Reuters) - Housebuilder Berkeley Group has lost its place in the blue-chip FTSE 100 equity index after its stock price dropped, partly because of Britain's vote to leave the European Union. FTSE Russell, which handles changes to the index, said on Wednesday that Berkeley would be replaced by Russian gold and silver miner Polymetal, whose shares have surged as economic uncertainty has driven up the price of gold. A company's place in the FTSE 100 index is decided on the basis of its share performance and stock market value.
