Disclaimer: Each investment is a personal decision and all investments contain risks. theScreener does not know your personal situation and cannot assess what investments might be suitable to you. theScreener's evaluations and ratings are therefore no advice to buy or sell any securities. The four star and risk rating is based on data obtained in the past. Please note that the future behaviour of securities can differ significantly and abruptly from the behaviour in the past. Even a low risk rated equity remains an equity, hence an investment that contains the risk of a significant or even total loss of the invested money.
