Japan Hot Stocks-KDDI , Nissan, Sotec

TOKYO, June 3 (Reuters) - The following stocks are on the move on Monday. **KDDI HITS 10-MTH HIGH ON BRIGHT SALES OUTLOOK**

KDDI Corp up 9.5 percent or 42,000 yen at 484,000, after jumping by its daily-limit of 50,000 yen at one point to a 10-month high of 492,000 yen. By comparison, the communications sector subindex was up 0.57 percent.

"Compared to NTT DoCoMo Inc , KDDI's sales growth in mobile services is looking strong and attracting investors," said Norihiro Fujito, senior strategist at Kokusai Securities.

Daiwa Securities, Japan's second-largest brokerage, said on Monday it had added KDDI to its recommended portfolio for individual investors, citing brisk sales of mobile services and an undervalued share price. 0100 GMT **NISSAN , PEERS UP AFTER YEN STABILISES** Nissan Motor Co Ltd, Japan's third-biggest automaker, bid-only at 901 yen, up 20 yen or 2.27 percent.

Concerns that a further rise in the yen could eat into exporter earnings hit Nissan, which lost almost nine percent in its past three-day losing streak, and its peers last week.

But given the Japanese authorities' strong desire to prevent a surging yen from hurting exporters, as shown by repeated market intervention on Friday, the Japanese currency has stabilised.

The dollar was around 124.45 yen early Monday morning after hitting a six-month low of 122.82 yen last Thursday.

Nissan's bigger rival Honda Motor Co Ltd was up 90 yen or 1.7 percent at 5,390. 0012 GMT **SOTEC BID-ONLY ON REPORT OF TIE-UP WITH SONY** Sotec Co Ltd bid-only with no sellers at 185,000 yen, 3.4 percent above Friday's close of 179,000 yen.

The Nihon Keizai Shimbun business daily said on Sunday the computer retailer and electronics giant Sony Corp plan to tie up in the PC business, using a common memory medium and possibly sharing software.

Sony down 0.83 percent or 60 yen at 7,140. 0008 GMT
