Southeast Asia-related stocks in Japan facing 'quadruple whammy'

TOKYO -- Shares of Japanese companies with strong operations in Southeast Asia are turning softer of late amid four disadvantages.

     Nippon Paint Holdings tumbled more than 24% between Monday -- the day before the first sharp drop in China's currency -- and the end of Friday, the steepest drop on the first section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange. The company fell to a fresh year-to-date low at one point Friday morning before closing the day up a mere 0.6% for the session.
