investment proposal: Keep staying in the game on things Union Pacific Incalthough the with US$142 billion evaluated titles has achieved a more than sensational performance over the last five years and an early sale makes no sense due to the potential. I am a self-confessed fan of this company because the strategy is convincing across the board.

By 2023, the price/earnings ratio should fall to an ultra-low 17.90 points, which is below the historical average of 18.82. This is a more than sensational value, which should also appeal to conservative investors in the future. The company’s sales development is interesting: While this key figure was US$ 19.941 billion in 2016, according to my models, a value of US$ 25.74 billion (new record, +180 million as a month ago) is in prospect for the year 2023 placed. You should reinvest the distributed dividend (1.85%) on an annual basis.

The company is more than well positioned and should be over the next five years continue one excess return versus the S&P 500 Index. The excellent positioning of the company in the American context justifies a commitment to this stock more than ever from the perspective of a conservative investor. As a reminder, Union Pacific has appreciated 146% in local currency over five years. The S&P 500 Index was only able to gain 83% over the same period. With this return, the currency risk is not significant for a Swiss franc investor.

investment strategye: Sensational performance over five years – Massive excess return compared to the S&P 500 Index (the most important US stock market index).

Conclusion: The stock is attractively valued at the current level. In combination with covered calls more than recommended for a newcomer.
