ZKB Favourite Stocks 2022

Wednesday, 5 January 2022 Reading time : 3 minutes

The favourite Swiss Stocks for 2022
The year 2021 was dominated by the economic recovery. The vaccinations against Covid 19 and the affirmation of the central banks to continue their loose monetary policy ultimately also led to a further recovery on the stock markets. Despite the catch-up, the Swiss equity market will, in our view, continue to offer attractive investment opportunities in 2022. This is because many Swiss equities have not yet made up for their "Corona dip". Other stocks that have already performed well in recent months may continue to benefit from the the possible pursuance of the economic upturn.

The new basket in detail
The ten selected shares - five large caps (Alcon, Logitech, Nestlé, Novartis and SGS) and five small and mid caps (Ascom, Helvetia, Mobilezone, SoftwareONE and Zehnder) - are included in the basket in the initial fixing period at 12.50% (large caps and Helvetia) and 6.25% (small and mid caps). In relation to the market capitalisation, small and mid-sized companies are thus weighted relatively higher in the basket. Especially in positive market phases, this results in higher earnings momentum and greater price gain potential.

One of the favourites among the large caps is Alcon, due to its transformation initiated in 2016. Logitech is benefiting from the ongoing pandemic and the trend towards home offices. Nestlé remains agile, with strong growth and margins. Novartis is characterised above all by a high and sustainable dividend yield, and SGS is the market leader in the TIC market (testing, inspection, certification). Among the small and mid caps, Ascom is benefiting from the digitalisation trends in the healthcare sector. Helvetia stands out thanks to good operational development. Mobilezone continues to drive its online expansion. SoftwareONE benefits from the digital transformation and Zehnder from energy-efficient buildings.

At the time of the issue, all stocks were rated "overweight" by ZKB Research. There are no distributions to the investor. The net dividends distributed by the underlying is reinvested into the structured product.
