Introduction to stock investing
Take care of your own finances because nobody will care about your money as much as you do.

That's why you should do your own stock investing! If you choose to use a third party advisor, you only incur more costs but not more profit. This is also what the famous British TV satirist, John Oliver, says.


We can help you save your own money by investing because we make it simple, safe and transparent, without the usual conflicts of interest associated with an advisor.

Interested? Then, we recommend you invest in stocks because, in the long run, you’ll have the best returns through stocks.:

Why your own stock portfolio?

In the short term, you’re most likely safest by putting your money into a savings account. But, in the long term, you should choose an index fund or create your own stock portfolio. This will give you the highest potential to grow your money and is not as difficult as you might think. You just have to select a new stock from time to time:


You could also buy into an index fund. This is indeed a good solution, but not the best. Learn why it’s better invest in your own stocks than in an index fund.

The advantages of the Obermatt method

The Obermatt method is based on financial facts. Subjective judgments and stock market hype are excluded from our analysis. In addition, Obermatt is concerned only with stock analysis and not with the management of your money. There is no conflict of interest, because Obermatt remains independent from your money. This is the important reason why we can provide you with the best possible analysis.


And the performance of the Obermatt Analysis?

Since 2014, when Obermatt began to publish its weekly Top 10 stocks, our Top 10 returns have also been measured annually. Our balance sheet is positive.

But, Buyer beware! Do not look solely at past performance. For a statistically well-founded statement, all kinds of upsurges and economic crises would already have to have been taken into account. Wikipedia has cited only two dozen major crises since the beginning of industrialization 250 years ago. You can imagine how long it would take for one of these events to have a profound effect on investment performance. Before this is not the case you cannot trust past performance. Our back-testing of performance figures are made only for the sake of completeness and because people always like to ask about it. Schauen Sie nicht auf die vergangene Performance, denn für eine statistisch fundierte Aussage müssten alle Arten von Aufschwüngen und Wirtschaftskrisen in grosser Anzahl schon durchlebt worden sein. Wikipedia kennt aber nur gerade zwei Dutzend grosser Krisen seit Beginn der Industrialisierung vor 250 Jahren. Da kann man sich vorstellen, wie lange es dauern müsste, bis eine Anlage-Performance wissenschaftlich aussagekräftig würde. Vorher dürfen Sie der Performance nicht trauen. Unsere Backtesting-Zahlen sind daher nur der Vollständigkeit halber aufgeführt; und weil man so gerne danach fragt.
