How to buy Credit Suisse Group (CS) shares

Learn how to easily invest in Credit Suisse Group shares.

Important: UBS Group (UBSG.S) is set to acquire Credit Suisse (CSGN) in a government-backed deal after a series of crises saw CSGN stock plummet on March 16. As part of the merger, all shareholders will receive 1 share in UBS for every 22.48 shares in Credit Suisse they own. While you can still buy Credit Suisse shares at the time of writing, the company will soon be delisted from European and US stock exchanges and all existing shares will be converted to UBS stock.

Credit Suisse Group (CSGN) is a global investment bank headquartered in Switzerland and listed on several stock markets around the world.

To buy Credit Suisse stocks from Australia, you'll need to sign up to a broker with access to Swiss stocks. Alternatively, Credit Suisse is also listed as a foreign stock on the NYSE under the ticker "CS", so an easier option may be to buy the stock via the US market. Read on below to find out how.

Is Credit Suisse Group stock undervalued or overvalued?

Valuing Credit Suisse Group stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Credit Suisse Group's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.

Credit Suisse Group share dividends

We're not expecting Credit Suisse Group to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Credit Suisse Group's shares ever split?

Credit Suisse Group's shares were split on a 1024:1000 basis on 30 April 2013. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1024 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Credit Suisse Group shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 2.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Credit Suisse Group shares which in turn could have impacted Credit Suisse Group's share price.

Credit Suisse Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Credit Suisse Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as $1.75 up to $8.221. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CS.US volatility(beta: 1.26)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Credit Suisse Group's is 1.2604. This would suggest that Credit Suisse Group's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
