Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway has acquired stakes in Japan's largest trading companies or "sogo shoshas."
Japanese stocks fell while the yen rose in the wake of reports that long-serving Prime Minister Shinzo Abe will step down due to his declining health. The Nikkei 225 fell nearly 2% in late trade, while the yen rose vs. the dollar. The Abe news wasn't entirely out of the blue, as Bank of America had speculated about such a scenario on Thursday.
Technically speaking, the S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite have registered nominal record highs this week, though a pulling-teeth breakout attempt remains underway, writes Michael Ashbaugh.
