The best place for value and momentum

After decades of disappointment, the investment environment is finally starting to look positive in Japan. Chad Slater, Joint CIO at Morphic Asset Management, says Japan is the cheapest it’s been compared to the rest of the world for over a decade. 

Seasoned investors could be forgiven for being sceptical given Japan’s track record of stopping their own recoveries. However, things are looking different in Japan now. Following a number of microeconomic reforms, Japanese stocks are breaking from tradition and rising despite a flat Yen. 

Key points: 

  • Gains should be broad-based, so ‘buy the lot of them’ is the best approach
  • The one area for caution is high-priced defensive stocks
  • Despite market perceptions that Japan lacks the ‘entrepreneurial spirit’, plenty of such businesses are around if you look
  • Slater shares the example of A Team, a unique, founder-owned business trading on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
