  • The company's Refinitiv ESG score, based on a ranking of the company relative to its industry, comes out particularly well.

  • Analysts covering this company mostly recommend stock overweighting or purchase.
  • Over the past twelve months, analysts' opinions have been strongly revised upwards.
  • Considering the small differences between the analysts' various estimates, the group's business visibility is good.
  • The group usually releases upbeat results with huge surprise rates.

Weaknesses
  • The company's profitability before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization characterizes fragile margins.
  • The company does not generate enough profits, which is an alarming weak point.
  • With an expected P/E ratio at 32.85 and 29.68 respectively for both the current and next fiscal years, the company operates with high earnings multiples.
  • The company appears highly valued given the size of its balance sheet.
  • The company is highly valued given the cash flows generated by its activity.
  • The firm pays small or no dividend to shareholders. For that reason, it is not a yield company.
