We have all been waiting decades to buy Japan and it looks like they now have someone there who has some idea of what they are doing and able to devalue the yen a little bit to stimulate the economy. You might want to wait for a bit of a pull back. Worth looking at. You could also look at Wisdomtree (DJX-US) which is hedged to the US$, which would eliminate currency risks.

The Yen has topped and the falling Yen will be helpful to Japanese export. It is an underperformer so he wants to be there.

(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.

(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.
