10 Japan Stocks With Upside: Analysts

3. Mizuho Financial Group (MFG), through its subsidiaries, provides various banking and financial services in Japan and the global markets. The company offers retail-banking services, including housing and personal loans, credit cards, deposits, investment products, and consulting services.

Consolidated gross profit for the nine-month period ended December 2010 rose 5% year-over-year. Gross profit was aided by trading gains and the emergence of a customer group segment, both domestically and overseas, arising mainly from non-interest income.

During the first nine months, the company strengthened its capital base by ploughing back most of its profit and through issuance of common stock in the first half of fiscal 2010. The company's medium-term target is to take its Tier-1 capital ratio to 12% and capital ratio to 8%.

Analysts polled by Bloomberg give 100% buy ratings for the stock and it has an upside potential of 46% in the next one year.
