TOKYO, Oct 5 (Reuters) - The Nikkei average rose 0.5 percent and the broader TOPIX was 0.3 percent higher on Friday.
The following stocks were on the move:
**DIC RISES AFTER NIKKEI SAYS OPS BEAT GUIDANCE**
DIC Corp moved up 3.9 percent to 134 yen after the Nikkei business daily said the printing company's interim operating profit had likely risen 6 percent on the year to 19 billion yen, topping the company's guidance of 18 billion yen, after it raised prices to offset a strong yen and lower sales.
The Nikkei said sales of high-margin ink also improved DIC's profit margins.
**SEVEN & I DROPS AS WEAKER SUPERMARKET SALES HURT**
Seven & i Holdings Co Ltd fell 3 percent to a two-week low at 2,303 yen as weaker sales at its supermarkets offset growth from its convenience stores.
The operator of 7-Eleven, Japan's biggest convenience store chain, said its operating profit for the June-August quarter fell 2.5 percent to 79.9 billion yen as sales failed to match last year's post-quake boom.
It also cut its operating profit forecast for the year to February 2013 to 308 billion yen from a previous estimate of 315 billion yen, and below an average estimate of 310.0 billion yen in a Reuters poll.
