    seeing any more values? I know in the past you have mentioned Japan as an area that you think looks pretty good. Koesterich: Within the developed world, it really is hard to find anything that's trending below its long-term average. The United States is clearly on the expensive side. Europe is probably somewhere close to fair value. Japan looks to be really the only unambiguously cheap market out there. On a price-to-book basis, for example, it trades at roughly half the U.S. valuation. Now, given slower growth, given many of the structural headwinds in Japan , Japan should be cheaper, but it doesn't necessarily need to be that cheap. When we compare it to other parts of the developed world, it does seem that not only are valuations low, but there are some other tailwinds that will benefit Japanese stocks. A very accommodative Central Bank that's going to keep monetary policy ultra-loose at least in 2015, arguably some reallocation of pension assets from the large Japanese pension funds, and some evidence of corporate reform. Taking that in aggregate, we do see some good opportunities in Japanese equities. Glaser: How do you feel about the currency then? How does that play into your thesis? Koesterich: We think that the currency probably is going to weaken a bit. But we don't think that the view on Japan is predicated on a much weaker currency. In other words, if we do see further weakness in the currency, that probably is a bit of a tailwind for the more cyclical exporting parts of the Japanese economy. But as I mentioned, there are lot of reasons Japanese stocks can go up that have nothing to do with the yen. Certainly if you look at where the yen is today
