Mark Yusko's Presentation on Japan From The Grant's Conference

Today we wanted to highlight a presentation that Mark Yusko of Morgan Creek Capital Management gave at the Spring 2013 Grant's Interest Rate Observer Conference.  Entitled "This Time For the Money", his presentation focused on Japan.

In it, he argued that the current rally in Japanese equities is just getting started and that there's a lot of room to run.  This, he points out, is largely affected by "Abenomics" where the government has unveiled a massive attempt to combat Japanese deflation via aggressive monetary easing.

Yusko points out that there will be winners and losers in Japan and offers some ideas.  As potential winners, he listed Toyota, Marubeni, Mitsui, Mitsubishi UFJ, Sumitomo Mitsui Financial, Mizuho, and Japan Securities Finance.

As far as potential losers go, he questioned whether or not the short squeeze is over in names such as Sharp, Panasonic, Sony, and Fujitsu.  Yusko also singled out airlines and food companies as they struggled during the last reflation.  Will it be different this time around?
