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.

(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.

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.

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$.

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

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.

What ETF would you suggest for investing in Japan? Likes the iShares MSCI Japan (EWJ-N) although there are lots of other ETFs out there. This one has the major indices covered. Financials are about 20%, industrial/technology at around 15%. Most of his ETFs have veered towards the US, but also more towards Europe and the UK.

(A Top Pick Dec 31/12. Up 24.26%.) Thinks this will go higher. All support is at around $9.20. Japanese decided to stimulate by lowering the currency, which stimulates the export economy. It has broken out above a little resistance at $11.10. In a short-term chart, he sees an ascending triangle that is trying to break out again.

Invesing in the Japanese market, would you choose iShares Japan C$ Hedge ETF (CJP-T) or iShares Japan ETF (EWJ-N)? He would choose CJP because it is Canadian listed and a fundamental ETF. It is rebalanced and the selection is based on momentum and value criteria, total sales and price-to-book. This is based on the MSCI Japan index. He much prefers fundamental indexes versus straight MSCI indexes.

With Japan there is currency risk – they are actively working on devaluing the Yen. Forward earnings estimate is over 50%, valuation is 14 times. Export oriented and strong consumer sector. You will not be disappointed. Providing earnings estimates are achieved, if it goes up 10-15% over the next 3-4 months then the run is done and if not, then it won’t.

Japan has been out of favour for years and years. Tends to be counter cyclical. There is a currency war going on right now and they are pushing the yen down which he thinks will be good for Japanese exports. If he had to pick one global play that is probably not going to be affected if we have a turndown, it will probably be Japan. Auto manufacturing is the largest component, about 12%, of this ETF.
