Trump-tied stocks in US, Japan getting a reality check

Defense, health care rally; infrastructure down

TOKYO --  Investors have snapped up U.S. and Japanese stocks that they expect will benefit from the election of Donald Trump as American president, but they are now becoming more selective, focusing on the Trump policies that have a real chance of being implemented.
