Market Scramble: A way up for Japanese value stocks

Shift toward small-cap bargain equities indicates room for growth

The Tokyo Stock Exchange

On Wednesday, the Tokyo Stock Exchange's startup-heavy Mothers board slumped 3.4%, its largest percentage loss since Nov. 9 -- just after the U.S. presidential election. This represented a dramatic reversal of the steady gains made by equities with small to midsized capitalizations.
