Japanese Microcaps with very low valuations

RE: Japanese Microcaps with very low valuations
I would like to share my experience on Japanese small caps.

Last year, I was screening for net net stocks with dividend yield, and Japan had the lion's share. I decided to experiment and see what a purely quant approach will yield for me (since I don't understand the Japanese language). Buying a basket of 15 Japanese stocks (via Std Chart Brokerage) during Nov/Dec period last year, the paper return in 9 months is around 19% net of exchange losses & fees. All stocks are in positive territory with 6%-50% Yen gain to date.

The stocks in my portfolio are: Kawasumi Lab, Shingakukai, Charle, Nireco, Takigami Steel, Nakakita, Techno Associe, Tenox, Eidai Kako, Mansei, Shinko Shoji, Yotai, Natoco, Sansha Electric.

Same Period Performance Comparisons: 
  • Yen gain of 25% vs Nikkei index gain of 12%
  • S$ gain of 19% vs Aggregate Value Fund (Asia Pac small caps value investing fund) of 11% vs STI index gain of 19%
This is fairly encouraging result for my first foray into both net net investing & the Japanese market.

Shinko Shoji, also a holding of mine is buying back 9% of shares outstanding after already consistently buying back shares. It also raised of its profit forecast for the year.

I am interested to know what tools you use to screen for stocks globally?
I wait until there is money lying in the corner, and all I have to do is go over there and pick it up.

Nice! Have some of those holdings in my portfolio at the moment too haha.

Btw, have you considered using IB instead of Stanchart? You might end up saving more using IB with Stanchart's atrocious forex rates.

On a side note, added Odawara Auto Machine recently seeing that it's still cheap.

I was using Google Finance & a spreadsheet at first, but it's a lot of work. After that, I tried Screener.co (https://screener.co/) using their free trial period.
