Broker snap: Japanese trusts high enough

Date: Monday 16 Nov 2009

LONDON (ShareCast) - Broker Killik Capital has cast its eye east to Japan where a pair of investment trusts have been narrowing the discount to net asset value.

Melchior Japan trades at a discount of 9%, down from 36% last December, helped by stake building from arbitrageurs, says the broker.

But Killik thinks re-rating upside is limited from current levels and remains cautious on the yen over the medium term.

Meanwhile, JPMorgan Fleming Japanese Smaller Companies has narrowed its discount to 11% from 27% in March despite “consistently poor relative performance”.

Yen concerns and the limited re-rating potential also keep Killik cautious here.

Japanese markets have rallied in line with the global recovery in stock prices, surging more than 50% between early March and late August. The Nikkei is currently up 39% at 9,791.
