Digging Into Credit Suisse's Global Focus List

Credit Suisse just released its Global Focus List for this month. In the new report, Credit Suisse discussed the recent performance of the list and the changes the firm made since to last month’s list.

About The List

Credit Suisse’s Global Focus List is a collection of the firm’s top stock picks from around the world. According to the report, "The list is assembled bottom up, reflecting our analysts’ most favored and differentiated ideas."

Throughout the month of May, the list generated a total return of 0.23 percent. Since its inception in June of 2014, the list has outperformed the MSCI World index by more than 1.2 percent.


The only U.S.-listed addition to the list during the past month is Time Warner Inc TWX.

However, Credit Suisse removed two U.S.-listed names from the list this month: Aetna Inc AET and Procter & Gamble Co PG.

Aetna’s stock has surged more than 6.8 percent in the past month, while Time Warner and P&G have both generated negative returns.
