The Japanese recession was short
and the third largest economy in the
world is growing again.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Does that mean it is time to invest in
Japan again?

The New York Times writes about
Japan’s latest recession.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
The Japanese economy, the world’s
third-largest, started expanding
again at the end of 2014,
government data showed Monday,
after a painful midyear slump that
had raised doubts about Prime
Minister Shinzo Abe’s efforts to
rekindle growth and end entrenched
deflation.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
The latest in what seem like
countless Japanese downturns –
there have been six since 1997 –
lasted just two quarters, the shortest
technical definition of a recession.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Yet the return to growth was more
tepid than experts had predicted and
may fail to erase concerns that the
economy remains fundamentally
fragile, despite Mr. Abe’s two-year
stimulus campaign.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
“The economy has escaped the
worst phase and is recovering, but
the pace is likely to remain extremely
slow,” said Yasunari Ueno, an
economist at Mizuho Securities, a
Japanese brokerage firm.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
The issue would appear to be the
longer term health of the Japanese
economy as Japan has often popped
in and out of recession for nearly
twenty years.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
And, as the article notes, the current
state of the Japanese economy is on
the growth side but not especially
strong.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
How Slow Japanese
Growth?
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Shinzo Abe, the Japanese prime
minister, has pushed to devalue the
Yen and with some success
increased Japanese exports.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
But the success has been tepid. The
Wall Street Journal says that
Japanese growth misses
forecasts.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
The worst is likely over for Japan in
the near term, economists said
Monday, but Mr. Abe still faces a
difficult balancing act as he tries to
get prices and wages to rise at the
same time.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Growth last quarter was driven by
exports
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
While sustainable expansion
depends on instilling confidence in
consumers who account for around
60% of the economy, and whose
wages have been rising more slowly
than prices for more than a year.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
“I was surprised by how weak
household spending was,” said
Shotaro Kuga, an economist at
Daiwa Institute of Research, said of
the fourth quarter results.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
“The economy is recovering – it’s
just the pace of the recovery is less
than forecast.”
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Fueled by exports, Japan’s gross
domestic product increased at an
annualized rate of 2.2% in the three
months through December,
government data showed Monday
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Well below the 3.6% growth forecast
by economists.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
If you are watching Japanese
companies that make their money
exporting products it may be time to
invest in Japan.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
If you are looking at Japanese
businesses that rely on Japanese
consumer spending you may be
disappointed.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Individual Cases
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
As with US stocks if you think it is
time to invest in Japan you can pick
stock indexes or individual stocks.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Bloomberg writes about how Japan
returns to growth.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Financial shares and oil producers
led gains among industry groups.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Yokohama Rubber Co. jumped 5.5
percent as the tiremaker raised its
dividend forecast.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Asics Corp. tumbled 10 percent after
the sportswear maker projected
profit that missed estimates.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
Kuraray Co. dropped 5.7 percent
after full-year net-income forecasts
disappointed analysts.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
The Topix index gained 0.7 percent
to 1,459.43 at the close in Tokyo,
with two stocks rising for each that
fell.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
The measure climbed 2.3 percent
last week.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
The Nikkei 225 Stock Average
advanced 0.5 percent to 18,004.77.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
The yen added 0.2 percent to 118.52
per dollar, strengthening a third day.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
The numbers make the point.
Exporters like Yokohama Rubber Co.
have popped up but it is a mixed
picture of winners and losers.
http://www.profitableinvestingtips.com/stock-investing-tips/is-it-time-to-invest-in-japan
As with all investing a sound grasp of
fundamentals for individual stocks is
most important when you think it is
time to invest in Japan again.
