  • 2. 18 November 2002 THE CHARTIST’S OPINION Sigisbert Koch, phone +41 (1) 333 94 64 FIG. 1: S&P 500 INDEX As Figure 1 indicates, the S&P 500 is still below the 200-day moving average, which, like the trend, is 1600 heading south – in contrast to the momentum, which is 1400 approaching the 0-mark. There is no question of a 1200 long-term change in trend unless the 200-day line is 1000 broken and is in an upward movement. It is highly likely 800 that the upward movement since October is only a re- covery. 600 Outlook: Corrections should be selectively used to buy, Momentum oscillator 50 but investors should be aware of any fall below 830/835, which would lead us to expect the old low of 0 770. -50 1999 2000 2001 2002 Source: Datastream FIG. 2: COMMODITY RESEARCH BUREAU INDEX The Commodity Research Bureau (CRB) Index displays a clear example of an upward trend. Supported by the 240 rising 200-day moving average, there has been one 230 high after another. Nevertheless, signs of a correction 220 are discernible in the daily chart. Figure 2 indicates a 210 forthcoming weakness in momentum, which is negative 200 relative to price performance. A fall below 223 would 190 suggest 219. Below 219, we would expect 212.50. 180 Outlook: As long as 230 is not surpassed, the short- Momentum oscillator 20 term picture remains prone to correction. Buy-oriented investors should wait for the downturn, and buy at 219 0 and 213 with a stop at 211, or with a 5% stop if 230 is -20 broken. 1999 2000 2001 2002 Source: Datastream FIG. 3: CRUDE OIL FUTURE It is plain to see from the Crude Oil Future chart to the left that a correction has set in, reaching the rising 200- 40 35 day moving average. Momentum looks frail and, sup- 30 ported by the divergence, is just about to reach the 0- 25 line. Sales pressure may persist for a time and if the in- 20 dex falls towards 24 could increase demand, which 15 would add support. If, against expectations, the index falls below 24, 22 would then be expected. 10 Outlook: Investors should wait for 24 in order to in- Momentum oscillator 100 crease exposure. We recommend placing a stop at 50 23.20. If 28.30 should unexpectedly be reached first, 0 -50 the buy limit should be placed at 28.60 with a 5% stop. -100 1999 2000 2001 2002 Source: Datastream Stock Market Overview – Weekly Update.

  • 3. 18 November 2002 FIXED INCOME/FOREX STRATEGY ECB PREPARES MARKETS FOR AN INTEREST-RATE CUT Dr. Anja Hochberg, Fixed Income & Forex Research, phone +41 (1) 333 52 06 First chief economist Ottmar Issing was sent in to bat. The dynamic ECB hawk surprised the markets on Tuesday with an unexpectedly clear statement: the decision to keep key interest rates at their current level in November was one of the most difficult in the European Central Bank’s (ECB) 4-year history. Throughout the week, various members of the Bank’s board reinforced this message in no uncertain terms: Welteke, Liebscher, Haemaelaeinen and even ECB president Duisenberg unanimously emphasised both decreasing inflationary risks and growth- associated risks which have to be closely monitored. On Thursday, the last skeptics were presented with black- and-white proof of a near-term rate cut by the ECB, in the form of the Bank’s monthly report. In the editorial, the pros and cons of a rate cut were prominently discussed - something which had not been seen before. In addition to the factors mentioned above, namely the dwindling risk of inflation and a weaker than expected economic up- turn, the “currency guardians” also made reference to the temporary rise in prices in the euro zone towards year- end (oil price, indirect taxes, base effects). The ECB has learnt its lesson: it is unlikely that analysts will now as- sume that an inflation rate just outside the target range provides a reason against an interest-rate cut. The financial markets got the message. As Figure 1 illustrates, the ECB’s comments have led to a further flatten- ing of the short end of the risk-free yield curve. The markets (or at least interest rate futures) seem to have reached agreement: The ECB is going to cut rates before year-end. The extent of the cut is less certain: most market analysts are predicting that the ECB will at first lower the rate only by a cautious 25 basis points (bp). We, on the other hand, would go further (as was the case with our forecast of a rate-cut by the Fed in November); the clarity of the ECB’s statements and its actions to date (rates have always been cut in 50 bp steps) lead us to fore- cast a 50 bp cut in key interest rates. Although such a step would be unlikely to surprise the financial markets, it would create additional price potential both at the short and long end. In order to profit from this market environ- ment, a barbell strategy is advisable for the European government bond market until the first week of December 2002.

  • 4. 18 November 2002 CORPORATE BONDS Q3 2002 RESULTS FOR ENEL AND REPSOL Dr. Jeremy Field, Bond Research, phone +41 (1) 334 56 29 ENEL (A1, STABLE/A+, STABLE) WEAKER 3Q EARNINGS, DISPOSAL OF EUR 874M WORTH OF ASSETS Enel is the largest generator and distributor of electricity in Italy, also owning telecom assets. Enel is 68% owned by the Italian government. Enel’s net profit for the 9 months was EUR 1.4bn, down 9% on a pro forma basis, hit by a reduction in tariffs and higher taxes. Italy has the highest electricity prices in Europe. Enel has written down its WIND telecom assets by EUR 1.5bn to EUR 8.0bn. We believe that WIND is likely to be divested when it be- comes financially independent in 3 years. Management said that dividend payout ratios will not change and there are no immediate plans to start the share buy-back. Enel bonds are not particularly cheap, but safer than the rating indicates in our opinion. ENEL BONDS BLOOM- ISSUE ASK SPREAD MODIFIED SEC. NO.

Cash flow was down 19% year-on-year, reflecting continuing difficulties in Argentina. Repsol’s sale of half of its interest in Gas Natural in May 2002, together with reduced capex and a dividend reduction, have allowed it to reduce its net debt by EUR 8bn. Net debt remains high, however, at EUR 9.5bn plus preference shares of EUR 3.25bn. Leverage is high at 44% net debt/capital employed and additional asset disposals may be required. Around EUR 2bn of Repsol’s cash flow is generated in Argentina and there is an ongoing risk regarding govern- ment intervention. Repsol bonds remain high risk, as the ratings and outlooks indicate.

  • 5. 18 November 2002 KEY IDEAS SWISSCOM: SOLID EARNINGS, BUT WEAK GROWTH EXPECTED Uwe Neumann, CEFA, phone +41 (1) 334 56 45 STOCK SEC.NO./BLOOMBERG RATING PRICE 14.11.02 52-WEEK H/L EPS 02E/03E P/E 02E/03E • Swisscom 874251/SCMN VX BUY CHF 446 509.78/360 28.00/30.18 15.93/14.78 On Thursday, Swisscom will present its 9-month results, the last European telecoms services provider to do so. Detailed information concerning our sales, EBITDA and net profit forecasts for the company can be found in the Key Events Europe section. Here we concentrate on the outlook for the individual divisions and the signs they pro- vide as to the group’s future performance. • The mobile telephone business is likely to be the group’s only growth-driver. As witnessed in the reports made by other European mobile phone companies, the trend toward rising margins (at Swisscom, 48.8% to date) and increasing revenue per user (ARPU CHF 85 to date) should also be apparent at Swisscom, albeit it to a lesser extent due to the limited size of the company’s domestic market. In other words, it is possible that the results in the mobile segment could be slightly more positive than market consensus. • The fixed-network figures are likely to be less pleasing; we expect a downturn in both sales and EBITDA. However, the effects of the recently introduced pre-selection program within local exchange areas should still be relatively limited; we doubt that a negative trend, leading to market-share losses in local networks, will al- ready be discernible. It is thus possible that the recent cost-cutting measures could have a stronger impact than the market expects. • In the enterprise solutions division, only the corporate communication solutions business is likely to show a better performance than the prior year. Data sales will be in decline and the domestic telephony business will be negatively impacted by the introduction of the uniform national tariff on 1 May 2002. However, given that these divisions make a limited contribution to overall sales, their performance should not have a significant ef- fect on the company’s valuation. • The performance of debitel is of greater significance. The mobile telephony provider was in surprisingly good shape at the half-year mark, despite stagnating sales. It is possible that the operating margin (2.7% at half- year) could fall further. Higher costs and customer-related expenses and the integration of acquisitions could lead to higher than expected investment costs (outlay). Overall, Swisscom’s balance sheet remains very sound. The company should again impress in the coming fiscal year with its ability to generate a secure and high level of cash flow. It is therefore possible that a share buy-back or reduction in nominal value, and thus an “extra distribution”, will take place in 2003, making Swisscom stock at- tractive for income-oriented investors. For this reason, we rate the stock a BUY. On the other hand, the share has little to offer growth-oriented investors. Restructuring and cost-cutting measures alone will not lead to a significant rise in the share price. Stock Market Overview – Weekly Update. CREDIT SUISSE PRIVATE BANKING 5
  • 6. 18 November 2002 BAYER: MANAGEMENT SOFTENS STANCE ON PHARMA PARTNERSHIP Dr. Maria Custer, phone +41 (1) 332 11 27 STOCK SEC.NO./BLOOMBERG RATING PRICE 14.11.02 52-WEEK H/L EPS 02E/03E P/E 02E/03E • Bayer 324230/BAY GR BUY CHF 21.92 40.90/17.03 1.51/1.96 14.52/11.18 CHANGE IN PHARMA STRATEGY: MAJORITY CONTROL IN A PHARMACEUTICALS PARTNERSHIP NO LONGER A PRIORITY The most interesting issue to come out of Bayer’s 3Q results was that management is now considering a solution for pharmaceuticals that does not necessarily imply a majority position in a partnership. In our view, this could be a first step towards a deal which could lead to a positive reassessment of Bayer stock. Additional positives from the 3Q results were: • The operational performance was better than our estimate: Bayer reported 3Q underlying EBIT of EUR 54m, ahead of our estimate of EUR 33m. • Balance-sheet improvements: Net debt was EUR 10.1bn at the end of the first nine months of 2002. We es- timate a further reduction to EUR 8.7bn by year-end on the back of further proceeds due by that time. VALUATION On our estimates, Bayer trades at an EV/EBITDA 2003E of 5.3x and EV/EBITDA 2004E of 4.7x. In our view, Bayer represents an interesting restructuring play in the sector. We reiterate our BUY rating.

Burdened by large corporate loan losses. Unemployment determines borrowers’ cash flow. Secondary market hit by low volumes. Credit cycle: European development behind USA. Rise in property prices -> correction. Cost savings are necessary. Low level of provisions for non-performing loans. Re-mortgaging stimulates consumption. Borrowers’ high gearing presents risk. Mortgage growth expected to weaken. Borrowers’ cash flow presents risk. Falling rates put pressure on margins. Source: CSPB Investment banking continues to be burdened by a depressed primary market and low volumes in the secondary market, which make further cost savings necessary. Since the markets’ high, Wall Street companies have cut 61000 jobs, according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Wholesale banking continues to be negatively im- pacted by loan losses. In 3Q02, most of the burden came from the US business, in particular from the energy and (again) telecoms sectors. In the last 12 months (3Q01 – 3Q02), from total loan losses of USD 130.7bn, USD 106.7bn (from 85 companies) was from the USA. According to Standard and Poor’s, only 16 bankruptcies were declared in Europe over the same time period, representing losses of USD 8.7bn. It remains to be seen if Europe is simply lagging behind the USA, which would imply further increases in loan provisions for European banks. Un- employment – e.g. disposable household income – is the critical factor in the retail banking segment. A lack of regular income presents risks in terms of credit payments, even if interest rates are low. We expect an interest- rate cut of 50 basis point in Europe, but falling rates put further pressure on interest income and thus margins. Most affected by this will be Italian banks due to their cheap refinancing through deposits, but French and German banks would also be negatively impacted on an operating level. We would advise against investments in Italian and German banks in the current economic environment. The oper- ating earnings capability of German banks is burdened by loan losses and provisions, losses on investment portfo- lios and structural difficulties. The Italian economy is weakening faster than expected; the uncertainty surrounding Fiat and a potential interest-rate cut put pressure on Italian banks. We continue to recommend a selective selection of defensive stocks with a decent equity situation (tier-1 ratio), positive FCF (free cash flow), a defensive loan strategy and secure dividends: UBS, Banco Popular or Royal Bank of Scotland (the latter could come under short-term pressure if its stake in BSCH reduces its state n RBOS).

  • 8. 18 November 2002 CHINESE MARKETS NOW EVEN MORE ACCESSIBLE Julien Lippmann, phone +41 (1) 334 56 46 A-SHARES FOR INTERNATIONAL INVESTORS As per 1 December 2002, China will allow selected institutions to invest in Remimbi-denominated A-shares in Shanghai and Shenzhen which were previously restricted to domestic investors. In the past, foreign investors could only purchase the low liquidity B-shares or the so-called H-shares and Red Chips listed in Hong Kong. With this opening of the A-markets (combined market capitalisation of approx. USD 510bn), the authorities aim to attract more foreign direct investment and to stimulate stagnating local stock markets. In order to qualify for the so-called Qualified Foreign Institutional Investor (QFII) program, the following conditions must be fulfilled: • Minimum of USD 10bn under management. • Minimum of 5 years operational experience in the investment business. • Insurance companies and securities companies must have 30 years experience and a minimum share capital of USD 1bn. • Banks must be among the world’s 100 largest banking institutions. In addition to the above provisions are regulations restricting the repatriation of funds. Closed investment funds may only withdraw capital after a period of 3 years (!), open funds after one year. Furthermore, at least 70% of all investments must be in shares. The upper limit for an equity participation by an individual foreign investor is 10% of the share capital. Foreigners may control no more than 20% of a company. A-MARKETS LESS ATTRACTIVE In our opinion, this opening will only attract funds very slowly. A solution for the administrative difficulties as well as the issue of the repatriation of funds can hardly be expected at such short notice. Given the valuation of the indi- vidual markets, foreign investors are most likely to show constraint (please see our Investment Idea of 13 Novem- ber for further information). Some H-shares are also listed in Shanghai or Shenzhen and show considerably lower valuations. The reason for this is that Chinese investors are not permitted to make foreign investments and have thus vastly pushed up the value of those stocks to which they do have access. This rule might be redressed by the QDII program under discussion, but this will require some time. First of all, however, important questions such as the exodus of capital and the convertibility of the Chinese currency must be resolved. H-SHARES AND RED CHIPS MORE ATTRACTIVE The QDII-Programme could trigger a flow of investments out of the A-shares and into the low-priced H-shares and Red Chips. For this reason we continue to favor selected stocks from these categories. We have recently downgraded our country rating to neutral due to the change in leadership and accompanying uncertainty with re- spect to the path of reform. For further information, please see our Investment Idea of 4 November, “China's 16th Communist Party Congress”. Stock Market Overview – Weekly Update. CREDIT SUISSE PRIVATE BANKING 8
