Japanese ETF sees noteworthy outflows

2019 Stocks increase
From ETF Channel Staff: Exchange traded funds (ETFs) trade just like stocks, but instead of ''shares'' investors are actually buying and selling ''units''. These ''units'' can be traded back and forth just like stocks, but can also be created or destroyed to accommodate investor demand. Each week we monitor the week-over-week change in shares outstanding data, to keep a lookout for those ETFs experiencing notable inflows (many new units created) or outflows (many old units destroyed). Creation of new units will mean the underlying holdings of the ETF need to be purchased, while destruction of units involves selling underlying holdings, so large flows can also impact the individual components held within ETFs.

Japan’s Latest Earnings Season Was A Good One

From WisdomTree: Japan is not a value trap. Against a backdrop of very attractive equity valuations--at 13.7x, the TOPIXprice-to-earnings (P/E) multiple has dropped back to the lowest 5% level reported over the past decade --the trigger for upside performance must come from positive earnings surprises.

Looking Past the Narrative on Japan into Fundamentals

From WisdomTree: One of the markets caught up in global trade fears that continues to perplex investors is Japan. The Japanese markets are trading near their lowest valuation levels in the last 30 years, supported by increased profitability, better returns on capital and improving profit margins.

A Strong Prime Minister Abe Poised to Deliver Positive Pro-Growth Policies

From WisdomTree: On Thursday, Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe was re-elected as the ruling Liberal Democratic Party (LDP) leader, winning by a very solid 70-30 margin against his one internal competitor. Abe thus has a very strong internal party mandate and will continue to be Japan's prime minister for another three years. This bodes well for Japan's economy in general and Japanese risk assets in particular. From here, two specific forces should combine to allow a Nikkei rally toward the 30,000 level over the next six months:
