What is Yodogawa Steel Works?

Japan stock

It was established in Osaka in 1935 as a steel manufacturing company and has a history of over 80 years.

Yodogawa Steel boasts top-class colored steel sheets in the industry, and is highly trusted by both businesses and general consumers.

The company is also expanding its business overseas, exporting and licensing technology to 80 countries.

Stock price movement

Japan stock

The stock price fell sharply in 2020, plummeting to nearly 1,400 yen.

After that, it reached a high of over 2,600 yen, partly due to the announcement of the expansion of shareholder benefits.

There is a sense of caution about high prices, and the stock is currently searching for higher prices.

It will take some time before it becomes an uptrend.

When to buy Yodogawa Steelworks?

Japan stock

Personally, I think it is a good time to buy if the price is close to 2000 yen.

If you look at the chart from 2019, you will see that the stock has been moving in the ¥2000 range on average.

I think the stock price has stopped falling to a certain level and if the conditions are right, it will rise again.

I think we may see a move toward 3000 yen.

Business activities of the company

The company is engaged in four major businesses.
