Swiss National Bank expects profit of 49 bln Sfr for 2019

ZURICH, Jan 9 (Reuters) - The Swiss National Bank expects to post an annual profit of 49 billion Swiss francs ($50.29 billion), it said on Thursday, citing big gains from its mountain of foreign bonds and stocks bought to dampen the value of the safe-haven Swiss franc.

The central bank made a profit of around 40 billion Swiss francs from its foreign currency positions and a valuation gain of 6.9 billion francs on its gold holdings, according to preliminary figures, it said in a statement.
