TOKYO -- Even amid signs of recovery in the global market, investors are bypassing value stocks usually snapped up in such a climate, turning their eyes instead to so-called SUNRISE stocks -- an approximate acronym of SoftBank GroupNintendoRecruit Holdings and Sony.

The quartet -- the Japanese equivalent of FANG stocks comprising U.S. technology heavyweights Facebook,, Netflix and Google -- have far outpaced the rise in the Nikkei Stock Average since the end of last year, creating a buzz in the market.
