    New sectors shake up South Korea

    Nikkei Asian Review
    Smokestack companies owned by chaebol conglomerates are losing steam and startups are expanding their presence. Companies in information technology, pharmaceutical and other sectors are thriving. Welcome to the topsy-turvy world of South Korea these days.

With consumer goods, especially cosmetics, also captivating the rest of the world on the back of the South Korean entertainment boom, the country's industrial competitiveness has entered a new stage.

    SoftBank leads joint venture into Indian renewable projects

    Nikkei Asian Review
    Japan's SoftBank has formed a joint venture with India's Bharti Enterprises and Taiwan's Foxconn Technology Group to develop wind and solar energy capacity in India, a country desperate to reduce its dependency on fossil fuels. Rosemary Marandi writes SoftBank is leading the joint venture with Bharti and Foxconn taking minority stakes. The joint venture company, SBG Cleantech, is undertaking a 20-gigawatt solar power project costing $20 billion. This is the first foray by Bharti into the renewable energy sector, away from its usual telecoms and retail. Telecoms and Internet giant SoftBank, by contrast, has built 16 solar plants in Japan since March 2011.

    Yahoo grotesquely mispriced after Alibaba IPO
    Based on Friday's close in the Alibaba share the current price of Yahoo's share does not make sense even under conservative assumptions. Either the market is totally mispricing Yahoo or else the market is reflecting negative expectations about Yahoo Japan and especially Alibaba through Yahoo's shares. Our SOTP fair value of the Yahoo share is $45.30 compared to Friday's close of $40.93
