Equifax Inc. : Equifax Inc. : The underlying trend is in force again
Summary
  • Overall, and from a short-term perspective, the company presents an interesting fundamental situation.

Strengths
  • Before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, the company's margins are particularly high.
  • The group's high margin levels account for strong profits.
  • Over the last twelve months, the sales forecast has been frequently revised upwards.
  • Over the last 4 months, analysts have significantly revised upwards the company's estimated sales.
  • For the last twelve months, analysts have been gradually revising upwards their EPS forecast for the upcoming fiscal year.
  • Analysts remain confident with respect to the group's activity and, more often than not, have revised upwards their earnings per share estimates.
  • Over the past four months, analysts' average price target has been revised upwards significantly.
  • Consensus analysts have strongly revised their opinion of the company over the past 12 months.
  • Predictions on business development from analysts polled by Standard & Poor's are tight. This results from either a good visibility into core activities or accurate earnings releases.

Weaknesses
  • The company's valuation in terms of earnings multiples is rather high. Indeed, the firm is getting paid 41.08 times its estimated earnings per share for the ongoing year.
  • Based on current prices, the company has particularly high valuation levels.
  • In relation to the value of its tangible assets, the company's valuation appears relatively high.
  • 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.
  • The group usually releases earnings worse than estimated.
