    Been reading your comments for a while now DVL, and while we have differing views, this pick is one I can totally get on board with.

     

    PM Abe has called for 90 yen/usd. Let's say it stabilizes at 85-ish. I don't think the market is factoring in the devaluation of the Yen and the upward impact on heavy Japan exporter's earnings, particularly SNE. As the Yen has tumbled, SNE has only moderately popped from under 10 bucks.

     

    You get a yield at 2.8%, a stock trading at .38 of book value, yen turn around, a (relatively) new CEO putting forth a restructuring plan, and an (initially) economic minded government.

     

    Of course you have these facts in mind, but when you put them down and review SNE's storied history, you have...

     

    "one of the world's cheapest large company stocks"

     

    I'm a buyer here as SNE is my pick for playing the yen, Nikkei, and the company's aggressive restructuring. Limited downside risk with many catalysts looking to prop the company up as it attempts to turn itself around.
