Rating changes: Advanced Micro Devices, Exxon Mobil, Home Depot, Infineon, KBC Group, Salesforce.com, Starbucks, Bank of America , ConocoPhillips, Equinor, Johnson & Johnson, Novartis, Unilever, Waste Management
The stock market took the Fed's recent comments as "dovish" despite the U.S. rate hike. Recent positive surprises from purchasing managers' indices (China & Eurozone) prompted investors to increase risk appetite. The consensus forecast for global corporate sales growth in 2023 is +2.5% (y/y). Profits should increase slightly this year (2023e: +1.5% y/y).
We see upside potential in consensus forecasts for this year given the positive 4Q22 reporting season so far and the solid 2023 outlook from corporations. These revisions will have a positive impact on share prices, in our view.
Salesforce.com: Revenue growth of approx. 17% p.a. expected until 2026
Home Depot: Solid growth and stable margins, US housing market with upside potential
KBC Group: Very high profitability with ROE of 14%
