The NAV is now 182p. The discount to NAV had widened and today was catch-up time. I guess JFJ is benefiting from the falling pound. Approval at yesterday's AGM to buy up to 25 million of its own shares.

it looks like all stocks are being marked down regardless of quality. the japanese appear to be especially risk averse these days after their very tough time in the 90's and then getting burnt again after they piled into the dot com techs. a knowledgable fund manager should be able to pick up real bargains out of this mess. in 2003 JPM managed to near double NAV in 12 months. Japan still has problems but looks stronger today and we could see a similar recovery in asset valuations. with interest rates around the globe falling and Yen rising, the Japanese will have to find other investments than currency carry trades. they may turn to their stock market.

Interesting play here - the fall in the Nikkei is being balanced by the rise in the Yen against the pound - could be bottoming out as how much further can the Nikkei fall in relation to its 40,000 high - already more than 80%

I thought that Japan will come out of this global crisis better than many. Their banks were heavily damaged by a similar binge in the 80's and it took more than a decade to recover in the intensive care ward. Now US and UK banks could spend the next decade in intensive care - while Japan is finally beginning to look stronger. Japanese companies will obviously suffer from a fall in Western demand but at least they will probably survive. The long-term chart tells the story...

Still looking like a ski slope but the discount to NAV is steadily increasing so if you manage to buy near the bottom you get a nicely geared up return. BGFD same price but lower discount - not tempted yet I'm afraid!

From The Times June 21, 2008 Japan offers a helping hand to world banks Leo Lewis, Asia Business Correspondent Japan has given its official blessing to a new mood of aggression in its banking sector as the country's powerful financial institutions turn their sights on deals with the outside world. Yoshimi Watanabe, Japan's Minister for Financial Services, told The Times that because the nation's biggest banks had so far emerged from the sub-prime crisis relatively unscathed, they were well-positioned to adopt a bolder stance over deals with Western counterparts.... http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/markets/japan/article4183190.ece

Inflation is making the Japanese spend.. they have massive savings.. 3 times a year's GDP is stuffed down futons and in low interest accounts. Prices are seen to be rising and people are spending like mad. I am a buyer of this Fund here. Price 181p resistance short term 191p

From Times Online May 28, 2008 Japan: the land of the rising return? David Budworth Given the turbulence in the markets over recent months you might not have noticed that the Japanese stock market has been doing rather well. Since hitting a low of 11,788 in mid-March the Nikkei 225 index of Japan's leading companies has leapt 16 per cent, making it one of the top performing markets worldwide. Two months is, of course, a very short time frame on which to base investment decisions. But it is worth taking note, as the burst in performance has coincided with a new found optimism in Japan amongst fund managers. Many think that the Japanese market, which has been in the doldrums for most of the past decade, could finally be turning a corner. Paul Chesson, head of Japanese equities at Invesco Perpetual, a fund manager, says: "We still believe that the stock market as a whole will be tough going over the next year. However, there are now more shares in the market where I believe we can make double-digit returns over the next year than we have been able to find for some time." Other fund managers, like Stephen Harker at SG Asset Management, say that Japanese equities are the most attractively valued for 25 years. More than half of Japanese companies trade at less than book value - the accounting value of their assets - according to Goldman Sachs, an investment bank. Dividend yields are also rising, with Japanese equities now yielding more than bonds. According to Hargreaves Lansdown, a financial adviser, this has only happened twice before - in 1998 and 2003. Both times, this was followed by a rally in the market. After over a decade of falling prices the Japanese economy also appears to have turned its back on deflation, which has made it difficult for companies to raise prices and discouraged the Japanese consumer from spending money. Japan's nationwide consumer price index (CPI) rose 1.2 percent in March from a year earlier, the biggest rise since March 1998. Although this was largely down to rising energy prices, economists say that there are encouraging signs that inflation is beginning to appear in the broader economy. Seasoned investors will, quite rightly, say that they have heard such talk before. There have been many false dawns in the land of the rising sun that have come to nothing. But the underlying factors, this time around, make Japan looks a more compelling investment than it has for many years. The next 12 months look likely to to remain tough as the credit crisis works itself out. But if you are prepared to hold for the long-term now looks like a good time to invest. http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/money/investment/article4019272.ece

Last Updated: Friday, 28 September 2007, 06:17 GMT 07:17 UK Japanese inflation keeps falling Car part production bounced back in August after July's earthquake There are signs the Japanese economy has not yet escaped from deflation, with consumer prices falling for the seventh straight month. Inflation fell 0.1% in August compared with the same month last year, making a rate rise from the Bank of Japan less likely before the end of the year. Industrial production was stronger than expected in August, despite the problems on global stock markets. Industrial production rose 3.4% compared with July. It was helped by a recovery in car production, which had been slowed by an earthquake in July. Exports also grew, despite the market problems for some of Japan's biggest customers such as the USA, but analysts say it is too early to conclude that the slowdown there will not hit Japan. more http://newsvote.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/7017492.stm
