  1. Good company (in a relative poor sector) at a cheap price. Interesting!
    As always there are not so many news about this kind of companies (at least in English). Do you find a reason about the price movement from 2500 yen in early 2017 up to 5000 and now back at 2500? The Earnings don’t reflect these changes.


    • Thanks for following up on my next post. I don’t have specific reasons as to the fluctuations in stock price; I could speculate but that just may fool me into thinking it’s the reality!​
