In their words (as of )

The Company's share price and net asset value outperformed the benchmark in January, due to stock selection. E-commerce company Monotaro was the top contributor, while factory automation stocks Keyence and SMC also performed well. Fuji Heavy Industries was the top detractor.
Earnings forecasts for Japanese companies have been revised up sharply, backed by a pick-up in the global economy and the weaker Japanese yen vs. a few months ago. Japan has regained the top spot among major markets in terms of the revision index for the first time in nearly a year. The interest rate environment has also improved for Japanese banks. The outlook for inflation is gradually improving, driven by a tight labour market and rising commodity prices. Corporate governance continues to be a major focus in Japan. Across the stock market in 2016, total share buybacks totalled a record high of JPY 5.2 trillion.
