Deutsche Bank Certificate on the Croci Euro Total Return Index
Deutsche Bank uses the Croci model. This is a respected strategy among investors. It looks for undervalued stocks and uses an “economic” P/E ratio to select them. The abbreviation Croci means “Cash Return on Capital Invested”.
Classic vs. economic P/E
There is the following difference to the classic P/E: The strategists at Deutsche Bank comb through the balance sheets of the companies. They adapt the annual reports in such a way that the P / E ratio can be compared between regions and sectors. The procedure is necessary because the balance sheet is not always the same: In some cases, different accounting standards lead to deviations. In other cases, certain assets and liabilities are not included.
If you look at pharmaceutical and biotech companies, they spend a lot of money on research and development and have numerous patents. These things play a key role in the Croci model. The “economic” P/E is therefore in many cases more meaningful than the classic P/E. Deutsche Bank applies the Croci strategy to numerous regions and markets.
