Pretty interesting group of companies :). I used one of our internal data providers here at Fool HQ (Capital IQ) to dig up some info on these companies, but doing a search on Google provided the company website for each. As a general rule I've found that many foreign comapnies provide disclosure equal to what we get in the U.S. That said, accounting differences can provide some headaches.

The first one, Kyowa, is in the business of making bolts and is listed on the Jasdaq under the ticker you provided. There are financials on its website, but they are all in Japanese. Given the market cap you're correct that this one would likely be tough/expensive to trade, though not impossible. The bigger hurdle would likely be the research.

Paranaense Energia has a pretty good investor relations page with info in English. and given that it's an NYSE listed ADR with should be fairly easy to move in and out of. I can't say I know much about the company itself, but information appears to be readily available.

Jiang Ling Motors, which appears to also go by JMC has a decent IR page in English too, though not as detailed as Paranaense's. It can be found here:

As a 'Y' pink sheet ADR it shouldn't be too hard to get a hold of at Ameritrade, Fidelity, E-Trade, though I can't speak for other brokers.

Hope this helps get you started!
