Japanese stocks have been under pressure because of the appreciating yen, but you like a motor and disc-drive company called Nidec (NJ).Moffett: Nidec is the dominant manufacturer of the little disc drives that go into Apple ( AAPL) products and other computer manufacturers. They also make motors for the auto industry. You don't think about it, but there are around 40 little motors in every car, moving the seats and wiggling the mirrors and such. And Nidec is an incredibly well-run company. They bought Emerson Electric's ( EMR) motor business and are trying to buy GE's ( GE). That's where they see the growth. -- Reported by Gregg Greenberg in New York.
