Dusseldorf The 40 Dax companies have recently done very good business. Last year they earned almost 120 billion euros together – almost as much as in the record year 2021. It was 129 billion euros.
But experts assume that this year it will be much more difficult for the Dax companies to repeat or even top the good results of the past. This is partly due to inflation that is still too high and the restrictive monetary policy of the central banks.
Handelsblatt stock exchange expert and stock analyst Ulf Sommer has identified a total of six risks that are likely to weigh on the business of the Dax companies this year.
In addition to the existing risks, another risk has been added in the past two weeks – namely the uncertainty in the banking sector in response to the collapse of the Silicon Valley Bank and the emergency rescue of Credit Suisse.
