Japan is rallying after their PM resigns This is an easy way to take advantage of this rally in Japan and benefits from currency movements.

However, the consensus from the OECD to Deloitte to Scotiabank believe that vaxxes and a strong manufacturing sector will drive Japan's recover late this year. It'll soon be Japan's time to shed Covid and shine. If you don't know which Japanese companies to invest in, then EWJ is a handy alternative. Toyota, Sony, SoftBank, Mitsubishi and Nintendo are among the top holdings. EWJ pays a 1.13% dividend and charges a slightly high 0.51% MER. A plus is that volumes are typically six million per day, so it's fairly steady. Also, the PE is only 5x.
E.T.F.'s
BUY
Charges a high 0.49% MER. EWJ is one of the earliest ETFs. Japan will do well in 2021; the Yen will grow as will Asia in general. It's a call on industrial and financial Japan that will continue to do well. Japan is the #2 or #3 player in the world, remember. Also: AEFE is an indirect way to play Japan at a lower MER.

BUY
He likes this a lot. When you think about diversifying and what other areas of the world to get involved in, Japan is a different economy. It is one of the largest economies in the world and is generally under owned. EWJ-N is breaking out to new highs. The bank of Japan owns a lot of Japanese ETFs.
E.T.F.'s
BUY

Institutional starting place for exposure to Japan. If you don't want exposure to the yen, use the DXJ. He'd choose EWJ and accept the currency as part of the total return. You might also look at the smaller cap ETFs for the long-term.

SELL
SCJ-N It's closing in on a short-term top. Reward yourself and sell it, given past resistance levels.

COMMENT

vs. EWY (Korea) Japan is where many have made big mistakes, getting too bullish, too early. He struggles with its demographics and GDP, but tailwinds include nobody believes in it anymore. Better to look at SCJ-N (small caps) which trades below book value. Catalysts in Japan include a major fiscal stimulus. He prefers EWY (South Korea)--see top picks, which has been caught in the US-China trade war.

E.T.F.'s
PAST TOP PICK

(A Top Pick Feb 26/18 - Down 9%) Still believe in it. He is seeing inflation perk up, some structural reform and the ROE is the higher than in many areas of the world.

E.T.F.'s
TOP PICK

Japan has been a tough place to invest for three decades. The difference between past rallies and the current one is that now the Yen is very cheap, and Japan is very export-oriented. The catalyst will be inflation. EWJ has been soaring and he's been very bullish on it.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

An ETF for the Japanese market? This one is the clear choice. It is pretty attractive right now. Hedged against the local currency, but you still have exposure to the US$.

E.T.F.'s
BUY

Has no problem with this, but wouldn’t be loading up on it. Perhaps 3% or 5%.

E.T.F.'s
TOP PICK

It is not hedged and is undervalued. They are cheap, lean and efficient in manufacturing.

COMMENT

A great ETF and just tracks the Japanese stock market. Very, very large. If you are going to play the Japanese market, this would certainly be one he would want to be in.
