How to read the ranks

For every stock, we judge its performance against its peers and rank it on a scale of 1 to 100. The higher the rank, the better the stock performs than its peers. And, we do this for six investment strategies:

Value - shows how good of a value the stock is. Green is "inexpensive"; red is "expensive".

Growth - shows a company's growth potential. Green is "high growth" expected; red is "tough times ahead".

Safety - relates to the amount of debt a company has. Green is low debt level; red is high debt level.

Combined Financial - this isn't an average of the first three ranks but rather a consolidated view across several financial indicators. Green = good; red = tread carefully.

(NEW) Sentiment - quantifies professional analyst ratings and holdings as well as market pulse. Green = positive sentiment; red = skepticism (Only available to Premium Subscribers)

(NEW) 360° View - the ultimate rating with all financial and non-financial indicators

Absa stock research in summary

www.absa.africa


Absa shares are less expensive than other comparable stocks. While they are good value, they show below average growth, and are riskily financed. We recommend evaluating whether the future of the company Absa is really as difficult as the low price of the stock suggests. If you believe that the future of the company is market-typical or even better, then this could be an argument for a share purchase.
