Prime minister Shinzo Abe has engineered a way the nation’s companies can dump ¥34.1 trillion ($273 billion) of stock, and share prices will keep rising.

Firms will repurchase their own shares rather than let them fall into hostile hands, says Dan, who’s traded Japanese equities for more than 15 years.
