Japan Stocks Slide on U.S. Credit, Japan Tobacco Advances

Japanese stocks fell as concern the U.S. will eventually lose its top credit rating boosted the yen against the dollar, threatening earnings prospects for exporters.

Toyota Motor Corp., which cut its second-half dividend this month, retreated 2.2 percent as the yen appreciated beyond 94 per dollar for the first time in two months. Bridgestone Corp., a tiremaker that earns three-quarters of its revenue overseas, sank 2.5 percent after the Washington Post said General Motors Corp. will file for bankruptcy. Japan Tobacco Inc., which plans to raise its full-year dividend, jumped 1.7 percent. Wire manufacturer Fujikura Ltd. added 4.8 percent after JPMorgan Chase & Co. said earnings may recover.

“When the yen strengthens beyond 95, concern grows among investors that companies will lower their earnings forecasts,” said Naoki Fujiwara, chief fund manager at Shinkin Asset Management Co., which oversees the equivalent of $6.1 billion. “I’m assessing earnings results and replacing companies that cancel dividends with the ones that maintain or boost payouts.”

The Nikkei 225 Stock Average fell 38.34, or 0.4 percent, to close at 9,225.81 in Tokyo. The broader Topix index fell 5.56, or 0.6 percent, to 875.88. For the week, the Nikkei lost 0.4 percent, while the Topix dropped 0.7 percent.

“Economic conditions have been deteriorating, but exports and production are beginning to level out,” the bank said in a statement in Tokyo today. Previously it said the world’s second- largest economy had “deteriorated significantly.”
