Swatch shares have a market-typical stock price level. While they are safely financed, they are poor value, and show below average growth. We recommend evaluating whether the future of the company Swatch is typical for this industry which the market average price level of the shares suggests. If you believe that the future of the company is above average, that could be an argument for buying the shares and vice versa.

Caution with past performance

Do not look solely at past performance. For a statistically well-founded statement, all kinds of upsurges and economic crises would already have had to been taken into account. Wikipedia has cited only two dozen major crises since the beginning of industrialization 250 years ago.

Our performance figures are provided only for the sake of completeness and because people always like to ask about it.
