Company that develop IoT solutions became the winner of the week

The Nordic growth exchanges had a mixed market performance, with the small exchanges falling and the large exchanges rising. The fastest rising stock was a Swiss tech company listed in Norway – with a triple-digit increase, similar to the fastest rising stock outside healthcare.

Shares on the Nordic growth exchanges (Kapital Partner Nordic Growth Exchanges Index/ KPNGX) fell 0.3% last week. The major Nordic indices fared better, with the Swedish S30 index up 0.6% and the Danish C25 index up 2.4%.

As expected, the indices are thus in the early stages of recovery, with large caps taking the lead before smaller and riskier stocks, such as growth and biotech companies, see positive price developments.

Since 1 January 2020, the KPNGX index has delivered a negative return of 8%. By comparison, the Swedish S30 index and the Danish C25 index have delivered positive returns of 20-34%. In addition, the S30 index and the C25 index have outperformed the KPNGX index through 2022.

However, the KPFNDK index has outperformed most of the smaller equity indices such as the KPNGX index and the TR Venture Capital Index in 2022.
