The Swiss bank, which oversees more than $2 trillion in assets, has a world-class wealth-management arm and also operates top commercial- and investment-banking units. Because the latter two businesses tend to be volatile, UBS stock sells for a modest 13 times earnings.
But that multiple should rise as its more stable and lucrative wealth-management arm expands, and affluence increases around the globe. The stock also offers a sturdy 2% dividend
That helps make UBS part of a portfolio that we think you'll be able to take to the bank.
