Guru Investment Theses on Credit Suisse Group AG

Brandes Investments Comments on Credit Suisse - Jun 15, 2016

Credit Suisse (NYSE:CS) declined over 30% during the quarter as the market remained concerned about the company’s restructuring/turnaround and the possible negative effect on financial results over the next year. Nonetheless, we continue to believe Credit Suisse has an economically attractive business model and is significantly discounted at its current valuation of 0.7x tangible book value. Accordingly, we increased our allocation during the quarter.

Credit Suisse (NYSE:CS) saw its shares fall over 30% in the quarter as the market remained concerned about the company’s restructuring and its negative effect on financial results over the next year. Nonetheless, we continue to believe Credit Suisse has an economically attractive business model and is significantly discounted at its valuation of 0.7x tangible book value as of March 31.

Bill Nygren, David Herro Comment on Credit Suisse - Apr 11, 2016

Credit Suisse (NYSE:CS) (Switzerland) was the largest detractor for the quarter, declining by 34%. Although CEO Tidjane Thiam warned that fourth-quarter earnings would be weak, some one-off expenses related to litigation, pension true-up charges and write-downs on certain credit assets were negative surprises during the period. However, this has caused the management team to accelerate the restructuring and reduction of non-core investment banking lines of businesses. The goal is to emphasize the wealth management business that has very good secular growth trends, is fee based and requires little capital. We believe Credit Suisse’s capital position remains solid with a Tier 1 capital ratio of 11.4% as of year-end, which is in excess of regulators’ 10% requirement. Despite some near-term challenges, we continue to believe that over time shareholders will benefit from CEO Thiam’s initiatives to correct some legacy missteps, grow the business and reduce costs.
