Summary

  • The company has a good ESG score relative to its sector, according to Refinitiv.

Strengths

  • Thanks to a sound financial situation, the firm has significant leeway for investment.
  • Analysts covering this company mostly recommend stock overweighting or purchase.
  • The difference between current prices and the average target price is rather important and implies a significant appreciation potential for the stock.
  • Consensus analysts have strongly revised their opinion of the company over the past 12 months.

Weaknesses

  • The potential for earnings per share (EPS) growth in the coming years appears limited according to current analyst estimates.
  • The company's valuation in terms of earnings multiples is rather high. Indeed, the firm is getting paid 41.26 times its estimated earnings per share for the ongoing year.
  • The firm pays small or no dividend to shareholders. For that reason, it is not a yield company.
  • For the last twelve months, the trend in sales revisions has been clearly going down, which emphasizes downgraded expectations from the analysts.
  • The sales outlook for the group was lowered in the last twelve months. This change in forecast points out a decline in activity as well as pessimistic analyses of the company.
  • For the last four months, EPS estimates made by Standard & Poor's analysts have been revised downwards.
  • Prospects from analysts covering the stock are not consistent. Such dispersed sales estimates confirm the poor visibility into the group's activity.
  • Financial statements have repeatedly disappointed market stakeholders. Most often, they were below expectations.
