(Top Pick Apr 4/11, Down 0.85%) Their crisis last year did not create enough of a buying opportunity. Japan is now completely off of nuclear and that is now creating a deficit because they have to import fuel.

Japan ETF. Has stayed pretty well flat since the Japanese disaster. Still owns in a few accounts but sold most of his holdings.

Japan ETF. Great story. Problems will refocus everybody on what a great nation this is. Third largest economy. Still 60% bigger than Germany.

(A Top Pick July 24/07. Down 10%.) Got hit in the market downturn but Japan fundamentals are the same as they have always been. Not worried about their financial system. This was a defensive move. Would be looking to switch out of Japan and into China for the growth going forward in the 2nd half.

He would wait for domestic demand to pick up. There will come a day when owning Japan and in particular this ETF is going to be an attractive issue. Because their domestic growth is still very moribund he wouldn't get in yet. Too sensitive to the export market, particularly the US.

Japan has been de-rated significantly. Near its 30 year lows. One of the most insulated countries relative to the global shenanigans going on. There is a tremendous amount of money sitting in Japan that is starting to move into the stock market. Attractive valuation and insulation from what is happening in the US and strong exposure to India and China.

Japan is very much of an export country. The culture doesn't seem to be for domestic consumption to any significant degree. Valuation is fine. Just an OK type of investment.

(A Top Pick Apr 17/07. Down 17%.) When the Cdn$ gained strength last summer, that was his exit point. If you are a short-term trader, this is not a bad Buy point as it allows you to put a very tight stop in.

Japan has disappointed from political view. Will see 10% earnings growth this year. More likelihood market will go up rather than down. Unlikely to reach $16

Japan has had a 20-year history of being underwater. Puts them in a space very similar to where gold was 25 years ago. You need a lot of patience.
