Trends and Forces

Yen appreciation against Dollar

Canon is embroiled with various foreign exchange forces and due to that fact, it was in early 2008 exposed to an extreme sell-off in the stock due to concerns about a stronger yen affecting profits in 2008. The yen continued appreciating against the dollar through mid-March but the stock has instead appreciated year-to-date as you can see from the chart below. Canon has due to this reason appreciated in value and in the recent weeks increasing almost 30% since early February and 13.48% since the end of 2007.

As the graph shows us that the stock has been significantly undervalued over the last year due to a weak yen, however with the yen going up recently, this trend is expected to benefit CAJ.
