I just spent a few minutes looking at the NYSE chart which usually factors in stock splits. I don't really follow the stock so I don't know if they split during the boom years. I think they pay a decent dividend so I'm not sure it's intended to be a growth stock but nobody wants to burn off that much share appreciation. As I said I'd be more concerned if it was an American company. Japanese companies seem to run on a different model. They're still making a profit. They trade in the US on the NYSE as CAJ if you are curious.Are you factoring in stock splits over that time period?
