E Japan Stocks

Nintendo fell on good news. Its flagship product, the Switch, is far from hitting its full entertainment potential and rumors today about an upcoming Youtube app are good news not bad. A handheld Switch offers a high-quality screen but has insufficient links to available diverse entertainment. I watch Netflix or Amazon Prime on a Sony PS4 but until now Youtube was not compatible with the Switch. Now kids who are too young to have cell phones will want to get a Switch. The YouTube rumor is not wild as both WiiU and SDS Nintendo products had Youtube apps. The launch may take place as soon as this month.

*Japanese industrial robotics maker Fanuc is in the doghouse, down 2.54% in Tokyo. FANUY is an obvious way to replace strong young men in making things like autos and other factory goods. Moreover, people do not fear job losses from automation in Japan. It rose 1.1% so far here on Monday so I am not the only fan of Fanuc. 

*NTT Docomo, DCMYY, a telco, reports Thursday. It is down because it cut its cellphone rates by 40% to force its smaller competitors to follow suit at the behest of the government. I should gain market share from this wager.  

*Toray, TRYIY, a conglomerate with good governance by Japanese standards, reports Friday. It makes materials and textiles, carbon fiber, water treatment and de-chlorination membranes, air filters, and chemicals in Japan and elsewhere for meeting performance needs. It counts as a green innovator. It is also running FDA phase I trials now for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and makes contact lenses and balloon catheters and blood purifiers as well as diapers for seniors. It also makes lightweight textiles for saving energy in planes and autos.
