On Monday last week we introduced the 'bounce back basket'
to provide inspiration to investors on which stocks they might consider given the sharp selloffs in equities. The idea was to look at high quality companies with high return on invested capital, low net debt levels and that had been beaten down significantly. The original list comprised US and European stocks. Today we launch a Nordic version based on the same principles. The stocks in the list are down on average 34% year-to-date so there are plenty of opportunities for the long-term investor. Investors should not view these as specific investment recommendations but as a filter and investors should do their own analysis and view the stocks in the context of their own portfolios and risk tolerance.
