The article focuses on the stock market in Japan. First Eagle funds manager Jean-Marie Eveillard says that Japanese market tends to be more inefficient than the American and European markets. He says that property and casualty insurers keep money in large portfolios of Japanese stocks and estimates that these companies trade at 30%-to-40% discounts to their adjusted book value. Fund manager William Fries says that one problem in Japan is the reluctance of managers to maximize shareholder value.
