A little over a week later, the index surpassed 40,000 for the first time ever. To add context to Japan’s recent stock rally, we’ve ranked the top 10 Japanese stocks by their 1-year percentage gains. This is shown by the black bars in the graphic, while market capitalization (in USD) is shown by the white bubbles. All figures are as of March 5, 2024.
