Key findings of the FCF Valuation Monitor (Q2 2022):

  • All four major German indices recovered well from the market shock in March 2020 in response to the global Covid-19 pandemic. However, after reaching record highs in November 2021, the indices have sold off strongly, barely realizing lower single digit gains over a 36-month period
  • Since April, all four major German indices recorded heavy losses due to investors’ fear of an impending recession, driven by record high inflation rates and rising interest rates
  • Over the last twelve months, all industries showed a negative share price performance with losses ranging between -1.7% (Industrial Materials) and -50.5% (Internet Products / Services)
  • Across all sectors, sales are expected to grow at 11.7% per annum between 2021 and 2024, while the Media & Entertainment and Renewable Products / Services sectors expect sales growth rates of above 20%
