Credit Suisse just published a list of its top US stock picks.

The Swiss bank asked every analyst to pick up to three stock picks based on a six- to 12-month time horizon, and ended up with 140 names. Of that 140, 14 were listed on the US focus list.

The US focus list is a compilation of 15-20 of the bank’s analysts’ “highest conviction catalyst driven ideas.”

“The list is assembled bottom up, reflecting our analysts’ most favored and differentiated ideas,” the bank said in a note.
