Baader Investment Conference this year celebrated its ten-year anniversary and featured a hybrid model for the second year running. With around 800 investors from 30 countries, and around 230 companies presenting, the conference still attracted a large number of participants despite the continuing COVID-19 restrictions.
This year saw far more participants than at the 2020 event take advantage of the opportunity to participate directly on site. The conference week was a success overall, with participants enjoying both professional and personal networking in a COVID-safe environment.
Despite the uncertainties that exist in some areas, most of the companies presenting were extremely confident about future earnings prospects, with a number of managers reporting an impressive increase in their profits over recent quarters. As a result, many of the participating companies were optimistic about current business trends and reaffirmed their targets for 2021 and beyond. Although various company representatives reported ongoing supply difficulties for components, and rising raw material prices and transportation costs, most managers believed, it would be possible to limit the negative impacts of these trends by increasing prices and making efficiency gains. Set against this background, many companies confirmed their intention to further increase their dividend payments.
