Taiwan stocks edge down on profit-taking

    TAIPEI, March 3 (Reuters) - Taiwan stocks fell on Friday,
tracking broader Asia, as investors booked profits ahead of the
weekend. 
    The main TAIEX index         fell 0.3 percent to 9,658.61
points as of 0127 GMT, after closing up 0.2 percent in the
previous session.
    The electronics subindex         fell 0.4 percent, while the
financial subindex         was largely flat.  
    Among actively traded shares, the world's largest contract
electronics maker Hon Hai Precision Industry Co          
dropped 0.2 percent. 
    The Taiwan dollar          softened T$0.123 against the U.S.
dollar to T$30.918, as the greenback held steady on growing
expectations that the U.S. Federal Reserve could raise interest
rates as early as at its meeting this month.
