Changing Japan

A lot has changed since I started covering Japanese companies in the early 1990s. Back then domestic firms had relatively low margins and high multiples, but we have seen since an adjustment process that has reversed this situation as valuations have come down yet returns on equity have risen. As a result, from a price/earnings perspective, Japan is now among the most attractively valued major equity markets globally.

Notably, it is also encouraging that we continue to see signs of a change in corporate mindsets with Japanese companies increasingly focusing on greater capital efficiency. Historically, Japanese companies have been good at managing their businesses and profit and loss accounts, but less effective at managing balance sheets. However, improvements are slowly drifting through and share buybacks, for example, are up about 20% year-on-year.
