Asia-Pacific stocks

Asia-Pacific stocks were mostly higher on Thursday, with shares of Chinese tech giant Alibaba in the spotlight following reports that Chinese regulators will probe the firm for suspected monopolistic behavior.

Alibaba shares in Hong Kong fell 8.13% on Thursday.

That came following reports that Chinese authorities will probe the Alibaba Group over suspected monopolistic behavior. Alibaba-affiliate Ant Group also confirmed Thursday that it had “received a meeting notice from regulators.”

The news comes on the heels of an increasing — and largely unexpected — push by Chinese authorities to rein in their biggest tech firms through regulatory action.
