How to buy Credit Suisse Group (CS) shares in Australia

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.

How to buy shares in Credit Suisse Group

  1. Compare share trading platforms. To buy shares in a company listed in the US from Australia you'll need to find a trading platform that offers access to US stock markets. Look for a platform with low brokerage and foreign exchange fees.
  2. Open and fund your brokerage account. Complete an application with your personal and financial details, which will typically include your ID and tax file number. Fund your account with a bank transfer, credit card or debit card.
  3. Search for Credit Suisse Group. Find the share by name or ticker symbol: CS. Research its history to confirm it's a solid investment that matches your financial goals.
  4. Purchase now or later. Buy today with a market order or use a limit order to delay your purchase until Credit Suisse Group reaches your desired price. To spread out your risk, look into dollar-cost averaging, which smooths out buying using consistent intervals and amounts.
  5. Decide on how many to buy. Weigh your budget against a diversified portfolio that can minimise risk through the market's ups and downs. You may be able to buy a fractional share of Credit Suisse Group, depending on your broker.
  6. Check in on your investment. Congratulations, you own a part of Credit Suisse Group. Optimise your portfolio by tracking how your stock — and even the business — performs with an eye on the long term. You may be eligible for dividends and shareholder voting rights.

Have Credit Suisse Group's shares ever split?

Is it a good time to buy Credit Suisse Group stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

Is Credit Suisse Group under- or over-valued?

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's PEG ratio

Credit Suisse Group's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 2.8914. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Credit Suisse Group's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Credit Suisse Group share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Credit Suisse Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$0.82 up to US$0.98. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CS.US volatility(beta: 1.19)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Credit Suisse Group's is 1.1915. This would suggest that Credit Suisse Group's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
