The slightly sporty price/earnings ratio of 17.22 points as of 2023 should be kept in mind. One of the plus points of this high flyer is the substantial dividend yield of 2.82%, which you should reinvest in new paper every three years. According to my calculations, earnings per share should increase by 9.22% in the coming year. So now you understand why I have no worries about the P/E ratio I mentioned earlier.

I call this paper a “long runner” because, given his position, he will always be a leader in his sector. Therefore, you will never see extreme jumps in this value, but a steady development with new highs over time. The stock has gained 86.4% in local currency over the past five years. This is all the more remarkable given that the S&P 500 Index was only able to achieve a price increase of 59.8% in the same period.

Investment strategy: Holding the stock without hedging

Investment strategy: Title still has a very strong upward trend for the foreseeable future, despite very good performance already in 2021.

Conclusion: Still top for the conservative investor over the next 36 months.
