● The company has solid fundamentals for a short-term investment strategy.


Strengths

● According to sales estimates from analysts polled by Standard & Poor's, the company is among the best with regard to growth.

● The company returns high margins, thereby supporting business profitability.

● Thanks to a sound financial situation, the firm has significant leeway for investment.

● The group usually releases upbeat results with huge surprise rates.

● Upward revisions of sales forecast reflect a renewed optimism among the analysts covering the stock.

● The stock is in a well-established, long-term rising trend above the technical support level at 93.02 USD


Weaknesses

● The company's "enterprise value to sales" ratio is among the highest in the world.

● The company's valuation in terms of earnings multiples is rather high. Indeed, the firm is getting paid 67.86 times its estimated earnings per share for the ongoing year.
