1)One year ago, a U.S. investor converted dollars to yen and purchased 100 shares of stock in a Japanese company at a price of 3,150 yen per share. The stock's total purchase cost was 315,000 yen. At the time of purchase, in the currency market 1 yen equaled $0.00952. Today, the stock is selling at a price of 3,465 yen per share, and in the currency market $1 equals 130 yen. The stock does not pay a dividend. If the investor were to sell the stock today and convert the proceeds back to dollars, what would be his realized return on his initial dollar investment from holding the stock?
