- The combination of solid earnings and initiation of a dividend and buyback coming alongside a beaten-down share price and sizable short interest alone would have been enough to send WisdomTree (WETF +27.4%) nicely higher today.
- But add to that the BOJ's bombshell expansion of its asset purchase program, and the resultant moonshot in the Nikkei and dive in the yen. The move is sure to renew interest in WisdomTree's once red-hot, but lately flagging currency-hedged Japan Equity Fund (DXJ +6.5%).
