English term or phrase:to maintain market outperform
Credit Suisse was maintained market outperform
by analyst Christoph Richard.
Credit Suisse behielt Market Perform entsprechend der Bewertung des analysten Christoph Richard
Explanation: To maintain Market Perform (not Market OUTperform) means that certain stock maintains (keeps) the level called 'Market Perform'. One can maintain Market Perform, be upgraded to it, or be downgraded to it. The maintaining, upgrading or downgrading to a certain level is a recommendation done by an analyst, about stock - which is important information for interested parties.
Beibehalten = maintain, zurückstufen/abstufen = downgrading, hochstufen/hochnehmen = upgrading, which are the terms that are being used in the German stock market.
"Credit Suisse was maintained market perform by analyst Christoph Richard" means that because of (or acording to/based on) the grading (analysis) done by Christoph Richard (an analyst) Credit Suisse maintains the level of Market Perform. Christoph Richard is a 'grader', an 'analyst', he analyses the stock market which results in a recommendation. In this particular case Christoph Richard's recommendation is that Credit Suisse should maintain the level/grade of Market Perform. It doesn't mean that "Christoph Richard keeps supporting his grading of Credit Suisse with Market Perform" (= Analyst Christoph Richard bleibt bei seiner Bewertung von Credit Suisse mit Outperform). No, he has graded (=bewertet), and because of his gradding Credit Suisse continues to have the level of Market Perform.
"Credit Suisse behielt Market Perform entsprechend der Bewertung des analysten Christoph Richard" is exactly what is meant when said "Credit Suisse was maintained market outperform by analyst Christoph Richard".
