Alcon Inc. : Alcon Inc. : The beginning of the move
Summary
  • The company usually posts poor financials for mid or long term investments.
  • For a short-term investment strategy, the company has poor fundamentals.

Weaknesses
  • Stock prices approach a strong long-term resistance in weekly data at CHF 62.01.
  • The stock is close to a major daily resistance at CHF 62.38, which should be gotten rid of so as to gain new appreciation potential.
  • The company has insufficient levels of profitability.
  • Sales estimates for the next fiscal years vary from one analyst to another. This clearly highlights a lack of visibility into the company's future activity.
  • The company's enterprise value to sales, at 4.59 times its current sales, is high.
  • The company is not the most generous with respect to shareholders' compensation.
  • For the last four months, the sales outlook for the coming years has been revised downwards. No recovery of the group's activities is yet foreseen.
  • For the last twelve months, the trend in sales revisions has been clearly going down, which emphasizes downgraded expectations from the analysts.
  • For the last four months, earnings estimated by analysts have been revised downwards with respect to the next two years.
  • For the past year, analysts have significantly revised downwards their profit estimates.
