TOKYO (Thomson Financial) - The average summer bonuses in Japan rose 2.52 percent to 837,036 yen per person this year from a year earlier, according to the results of a poll published by the Nikkei business daily on Tuesday. It was the fifth straight year that summer bonuses increased and the latest was 1.08 percentage points higher than the previous year, driven by large bonus payouts in the electric machinery and automobile sectors, the newspaper said. The survey covers 790 companies. Of the 37 major industries, 24 are raising bonuses this year, while 13 sectors plan to reduce bonuses, according to the poll. Among manufacturers, bonuses will rise by 2.95 percent, while those at nonmanufacturers will increase by 1.33 percent, the first hike in two years, the survey showed.

Shouldn't really have much effect. The holdings are 100% Japan, hence all in Yen, but converted to USD for reporting purposes. If the dollar were to weaken considerably against the Yen, the reported value (in USD) of those Yen quoted assets would correspondingly adjust upwards. i.e. neutral outcome. That aside, I'm not suggesting AJG is "a good bet", just mentioning it as a possible alternative to FJV to consider. I've got a few of both at the moment, along with Aberdeen New Dawn (ABD) for Asia ex-Japan, and JP Morgan Indian (JII) for India.

GB904150, Atlantis Japan Growth (AJG) is worth consideration - a highly regarded manager, but consequently it rarely sells at much of a discount. Trustnet:- http://www.trustnet.co.uk/it/funds/?fund=53685 Prelims last week:- http://www.investegate.co.uk/Article.aspx?id=200707061402368210Z "The year to April 2007 saw lacklustre performance from the Japanese stock market, despite a relatively good economy and solid growth in corporate earnings. This was especially true in the case of smaller stocks and stocks outside of favoured areas such as manufacturing, commodities and export-related businesses. Nevertheless, at this time we remain encouraged by continued growth in the economy and corporate earnings, and by the benign trends on the consumer price front that have allowed Japan's central bank to limit interest rate hikes. We also remain confident that consumer spending will pick up momentum going forward, and will strongly underpin continued growth in the economy in the months and years ahead. As long-time investors in Japan well know, consumer spending has been under pressure since the early 1990s as a result of a prolonged period of deflation. The extended drop in asset prices not only reduced the store of wealth of households, through pulling down real estate and stock market prices, it also led to heightened anxiety on the income front, as corporations were forced to restructure, putting more into unemployment and capping income gains for those remaining in work. Only recently have we started to see the light at the end of the tunnel for the Japanese consumer. The prolonged downtrend in asset prices finally appears to be coming to an end, with property prices in major cities now stabilising or moving higher, and stock market prices well above their lows recorded in 2003. Households are also starting to see improvements on the income side, as consecutive years of earnings growth has put corporations in a position to increase the hiring of full-time employees and increase wages, overtime hours and bonuses for existing employees. To be sure, these favourable turns have not yet been enough to bring about a full-fledged recovery in consumer spending. However, we believe these supportive trends will lead to higher consumer spending going forward, which will in turn bolster overall growth and confidence in the economy. In the stock market, we note that local retail investors currently account for about 40-50% of daily trading volume. On balance, Japanese retail investors were net sellers again during the past year, as they have been for many years. Even so, we are finding signs of a growing interest in equity investments, a reflection of a slow, but steady recovery in investor confidence following recent years of sustained growth in corporate earnings and ongoing increases in stock dividend payouts. In addition to net buying by local investment trusts, which represent buying by retail investors, we also find domestic institutional investors such as pension funds showing a greater inclination towards increased exposure to domestic equities, including smaller stocks. The Company remains heavily weighted in small and medium-sized stocks, reflecting our adviser Ed Merner's view that most of the best investment opportunities are still found in this area of the market. These smaller companies, some of which are listed on the newer markets or regional stock exchanges, are seen as offering good value for long-term investors. In many cases, the holdings in which the Company has invested are insulated from swings in the overall economy because they operate in fast growing niche businesses such as generic drugs, temporary worker dispatch services, internet advertising, software and IT services. Regardless of trends in individual company fundamentals, however, there are times when small cap stocks will move sideways or down even as large cap issues continue to rise, and this is precisely what has happened during the past year. This short-term setback notwithstanding, we remain confident that most of the companies in which the Company has invested will continue to grow as expected and, thus, will turn out to reward long-term investors. During the past year, while many major world stock markets moved to new highs, the Japanese market was left behind. With Japanese corporate earnings continuing to rise during this timeframe, share price valuations in Japan have thus remained at their lowest levels since the mid- to early-1980s. Based on prospects for continued growth in the domestic economy and corporate earnings coupled with near-zero inflation, we believe the stage is set for the Japanese stock market to begin moving higher once again and, in particular, think the Company is well positioned to benefit from the recovery." - there's obviously a good possibility that Japan remains a lagard and money tied up in any of these Japanese focused funds continues to languish. But, after the falling/sideways movement since the start of 2006 on the Topix 2nd section, a positive change in sentiment could quickly see some sizeable gains: just a return to the end of 2005 levels, never mind a catch-up with emerging Asian markets, would deliver considerable upside from here, especially if combined with reduction in discounts to NAV (or back to a significant premium in the case of AJG). The sensible thing to do would probably be to wait for some indication that this change in sentiment was underway: less upside, but also reducing the chance of money tied up languishing.
