Top 5 stocks you should have bought in the Corona shock!

No. 5 Fuyo General Lease


8424 Fuyo General Lease was established in 1969 as a company engaged in a variety of installment transactions, including leasing of office equipment and industrial machinery.

In the Corona shock in March 2020, the stock price was sold from the 7,000 yen level to 4,585 yen.

This was the low level in August of 2016.

As of September 2021, the stock price has moved above 8,000 yen, so if you had bought the stock at this time, you would have made a substantial unrealized profit.

The following is a summary of indicators for Fuyo General Lease.

PERPBRDividend yieldPayout ratioMarket capitalization
7.9x0.78x3.19%2021/3 24.3%6th

The stock is still undervalued in terms of indices, and since it also offers shareholder benefits, it is recommended for long-term investment.

However, since it seems to be negative about stock splits, it was ranked 5th this time.


USEN-NEXT HOLDINGSのコーポレートサイト。「必要とされる次へ。」をコーポレートスローガンに掲げ、ソーシャルDXにより、社会の進化を加速させ豊かな未来を創造していきます。

USEN-NEXT HOLDINGS (9418) was established in 2009 through the merger of music distribution companies USEN and U-NEXT.

It is known for its strength in the wide range of businesses that each company has.

The Corona shock caused the stock price, which had previously been in the 1,700 yen range, to plummet to 1,096 yen, but with the expectation that people will spend more time at home and sales of the distribution business will increase, the stock price has reached over 3,700 yen as of September 2021.

The following is a summary of USEN-NEXT HOLDINGS’ indices.

PERPBRDividend yieldPayout ratioMarket capitalization
30x7.05x0.33x2020/8 9.8x13th

From the perspective of the indicators, the stock seems to be overpriced.

The company offers shareholder benefits, but the dividend is quite low, so I don’t think it should be bought at this level.

I judged it to be suboptimal in terms of stock price and dividends, and thus ranked it 4th.

3 DMG Mori Seiki

DMG MORIは、最高の技術とサービスを絶えず追及し、工作機械の新しい価値を、 そして無限の可能性を世界中のお客様へお届けしてまいります。お客様にとって一番の工作機械メーカーであること。それが私たちのグローバルワンです。

6141 DMG Mori Seiki was established in 1948 as a manufacturer and seller of machine tools.

During the Corona Shock, the stock price dropped from the 1600 yen level to less than 900 yen.

This is a stock that I really regretted because it is a company with very high technological capabilities and has overseas offices.

The following is a summary of DMG Mori Seiki’s indices.

PERPBRDividend yieldPayout ratioMarket capitalization
25 times1.4 times1.36%2020/12 587.7%14th

PBR is undervalued, but others are overvalued.

The dividend is also low, which is an issue as the company is cutting its annual dividend from 60 yen per share in 2019.

We hope that the company’s performance will recover in the future, resulting in the 3rd place.

2 NYK Line


Founded in 1885, 9101 Nippon Yusen Kabushiki Kaisha (NYK Line) is the world’s second largest shipping company and one of Japan’s leading shipping companies.

It is also known as the core company of the Mitsubishi Group.

In the Corona Shock, the share price was sold from the 1300 yen level to 1100 yen.

As of September 2021, the stock price has reached over 1,0000 yen.

I think this sudden spike includes the expectation of the global economy, but I think it is too much at once.

The following is a summary of NYK’s indices.

PERPBRDividend yieldPayout ratioMarket capitalization
3.4 times2.2 times1.9%2021/3 24.3%1st

The company is undervalued based on the indexes, and there is a forecast for a dividend increase, but I personally think it is temporary, so don’t get your hopes up.

I ranked it second, with expectations for stable dividends and shareholder returns in the future.


KADOKAWAグループ ポータルサイト

9468 KADOKAWA Inc. was established in 2014 and is a company that sells a wide range of publishing and video products.

It is also famous as a company that promotes Japanese animation to the world.

In the Corona shock, the stock price was sold from the 2000 yen level to the 1100 yen level.

As of September 2021, the stock price has exceeded 5000 yen.

The following table summarizes the indices of KADOKAWA Inc.

PERPBRDividend yieldPayout ratioMarket capitalization
52.4 times2.82 times0.89%2021/3 32.3%9th

Although the company seems overpriced based on the indicators, I think it is an attractive company because of its shareholder benefits.

Post-Corona, the demand for visitors to Japan and anime will expand, resulting in the No. 1 ranking.
