A customer checks LCD television sets by Japanese electronics maker Sharp at an electronics shop in Tokyo on March 6, 2013. Shares in embattled Sharp soared on March 6 after reports that South Korean rival Samsung would become its biggest foreign shareholder, highlighting the fading fortunes of Japan's electronics giants. The huge move was stoked by reports in Japan's leading Nikkei business daily and other media that Samsung was set to invest in Sharp to boost its access to screens used in its popular smartphones and tablet computers -- a sector where Sharp's technology is a world leader.
