What is Nidec?

Japan stock recommend

Nidec was founded in 1973 with only four employees, but has now transformed into a large company with 100,000 employees.

However, when it was first established, it was a very small company and was not taken seriously by domestic companies.

Through the founder’s desperate sales efforts, the company won its first order from 3M in the U.S. and established a local subsidiary in the U.S.

This was only three years after the company was established.

Thanks to the foresight of the founder, the company started its PC-related business four years after the development of the PC.

After that, the company established local subsidiaries around the world and started researching motors for the automotive field.

Before we knew it, we had grown to become a world-leading Japanese company.

When is the best time to buy Nidec?

Japan stock

Personally, I think 10000 yen is the best time to buy.

The stock price has risen rapidly due to excessive investment, and I believe that the stock price will settle down as the future infections settle down.

If you look at the movement of the stock price over the past five years, it was at the level of 8,000 yen, but the stock price has risen significantly since 2020.

The reason for this is the increase in demand for computers due to remote work and the shortage of semiconductors.

The stock price has risen significantly due to the future expansion of demand for the company, but it will hit the ceiling once.

Three recommended investment trusts

Japan stock

Nidec has a stock price of over 1 million yen for 100 shares.

Many people may think that it is difficult to invest in such a pricey stock.

Therefore, I would like to recommend investment trusts.

Mutual funds provide a stable investment because they manage a variety of stocks in a balanced manner.

The following is a list of investment trusts that are recommended for beginners who are just starting to invest.

Mitsubishi UFJ International Investment Trust Future Innovation Growth Stock Fund

The fund has a 5-star rating and settles its accounts once a year.

Sawakami Investment Corporation Sawakami Fund

3-star rating with annual settlement.
