  • The Manual of Ideas: "The Japan Issue" 0 comments
    Apr 30, 2011 7:47 AM | about stocks: SNE, NTT, DCM, TM

    Japan has been on our radar screen for quite some time. The aftermath of this year’s Great East Japan Earthquake has given us the impetus to look at this market in more detail — and to try to identify some bargains among Japanese mid- and large-cap stocks. These companies are quite accessible to non Japan-based investors, as they trade on one or more stock exchanges in addition to the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

    When an already cheap market becomes even cheaper due to an exogenous shock, value investors are bound to take notice. While the human toll of the Great East Japan Earthquake has been devastating, we have confidence in the ability of the Japanese people to rebound from disaster. Japan has gone through many trying periods in history, repeatedly emerging with a newfound zeal to grow and prosper.
