Vishnu Varathan of Mizuho Bank says he expects the Japanese yen to strengthen to 103 against the U.S. dollar by the end of 2019 or even 101 by early 2020.
As the real estate sector hits a new all-time high, Mizuho says it's time to hit the sidelines on Simon Property Group. The "Halftime Report" traders debate how you should play the stock here.

Brokerage firm Mizuho began research coverage of (MSFT) and (CRM) on Thursday with strong recommendations for both stocks because of what they have to offer in the cloud. Microsoft (ticker: MSFT), currently the world’s most highly valued company at $878.5 billion, received a Buy recommendation and $135 price target, 18% higher than its closing price of $114.50 on Wednesday. Mizuho is bullish on the software sector in general.
Many of the problems afflicting Mizuho — the low interest rate environment, long-running under-investment in technology, an ageing population, the limited scope for further cost-cutting — are causing havoc across Japan’s banking system. Mizuho’s root problem is that its vast retail banking business is essentially lossmaking. In an ultra-low interest rate environment (the Bank of Japan’s short-term base rate is minus 0.1 per cent), the combined cost of maintaining a large branch network, investing sufficiently in new technology and funding Japan’s deposit insurance scheme outweigh the net interest margin it can make on its core business.
Mizuho Financial Group Inc. last week reported about 150 billion yen ($1.35 billion) of valuation losses on its foreign-bonds portfolio, while Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc.’s foray into U.S. high-yield debt underwriting went awry. Less than two months ago, Nomura Holdings Inc. took an impairment charge of almost $750 million for its overseas investment-banking business. Mizuho and its rivals have a combined stockpile of 142 trillion yen in international bonds, so getting out of overseas markets is hardly realistic. More mishaps may be unavoidable, unless Japanese banks become rapidly more sophisticated about overseas markets.

Japan's Nikkei slid to a one-week low on Thursday morning with chip-related stocks leading the decline in step with U.S. counterparts, while Mizuho Financial Group underperformed after it sharply cut its annual profit outlook. "Profit-taking makes sense now as ongoing U.S.-China trade talks, major concerns for the market, have provided no signs of exit plan while the market had risen smoothly for the past two months," said Hikaru Sato, a senior technical analyst at Daiwa Securities. Chip equipment makers Advantest Corp dropped 2.7 percent, Tokyo Electron plunged 3.6 percent and silicon products maker Sumco Corp dived 7.3 percent on further doubts the industry's downturn is near a bottom.
With Japan’s central bank buying the vast majority of annual government-bond issuance since Governor Haruhiko Kuroda took the helm in 2013, and targeting rock-bottom interest rates across much of the yield curve, the country’s big asset managers have had to go elsewhere. Japan’s megabanks -- Mizuho, Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group Inc. and Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group Inc. -- held some 37 trillion yen ($331 billion) in foreign bonds as of December, according to data compiled by Michael Makdad, a Morningstar Inc. analyst in Tokyo.
Japan's Mizuho Financial Group slashed its full-year profit outlook by 86 percent, citing one-time restructuring costs of 680 billion yen (4.63 billion pounds) at its bank and brokerage units and an overhaul of its securities portfolio. Japan's second-largest bank by assets said it expects 80 billion yen in net income for the business year ending March 31, instead of 570 billion yen it had predicted earlier. Mizuho said it would book about 500 billion yen of impairment losses on fixed assets, including costs from closing retail branches at home and software-related expenses.
(Bloomberg) -- Japanese banks’ quest for yield is creating more turbulence, with Mizuho Financial Group Inc. announcing another round of losses on its foreign-bond holdings as part of a surprise writedown that will severely curtail full-year profit.

The head of Japan's bank lobby on Thursday urged the Bank of Japan to review its 2 percent inflation target and ultra-loose monetary policy, saying that sticking with its elusive inflation goal would do more harm than good. Six years of heavy money printing by the central bank has made clear that Japan's economy can recover even amid low inflation, said Koji Fujiwara, chairman of the Japanese Bankers Association. "The BOJ should not persist in achieving its price target both in terms of the timeframe and pace of price growth," as subdued inflation is forcing it to maintain a radical stimulus that is straining bank profits, he said.
The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) could cut the rate at which it lends to banks on Thursday due to shifting economic conditions, Priyanka Kishore, head of India and Southeast Asia economics at Oxford Economics told CNBC. Several factors could prompt the RBI to reverse its policy, including a downtrend in headline inflation, according to Kishore.
