A handful of countries and global regions have enjoyed improved economic results and their corresponding stock markets have benefited. Switzerland, for a relatively small country, has some powerful global companies (UBS , Nestlé , Novartis and Roche ) that are well positioned.

The iShare Switzerland ETF (EWL) is up 12% YTD but all of that gain has been in the last six months.

For purpose of full disclosure, EWL is part of our client accounts.
