Australia shares likely to open flat; NZ up

    April 30 (Reuters) - Australian shares are set to open
little changed on Tuesday with investors likely to remain
cautious ahead of bank earnings later this week and China's
manufacturing data for April.
    China's factory activity is expected to have expanded
slightly in April, with stimulus provided by the government to
support economic growth boosting the manufacturing sector.
    The local share price index futures          fell
marginally, an 18.5-point discount to the underlying S&P/ASX 200
index         close. The benchmark fell 0.4 percent on Monday.
    New Zealand's benchmark S&P/NZX 50 index         rose 0.13
percent in early trade.
