Positive factors for Capgemini
The factors in favour of a rise in the Capgemini share price:

Firstly, the CapGemini Company benefits from a considerable advantage from its position on the European and indeed global markets in its activity sector. CapGemini is in fact in the top position in the sector of IT services in Europe and holds tenth position worldwide in this activity sector.

From a geographical point of view, CapGemini has also made great efforts to increase its presence worldwide, notably through a policy of decreasing its activities in Europe including the French, British and Irish markets in favour of the American market which is currently the major geographical market for this company. CapGemini also benefits from a growing presence in emerging markets such as the Asian countries.

Of course, the fact that CapGemini is specialised in IT services offers the company a certain advantageous position in relation to digital transition which is relevant to all businesses worldwide.

The group also counts on its offshore development to remain competitive against strong competition. In fact, CapGemini continues to develop its offshore growth with over 2/3 of its company in countries where the personnel costs, therefore that of production in general, are lower, such as India.

CapGemini can also count upon its expansion contracts to ensure profits for the coming years.  It can thereby, for example, rework its taxation obligations with the British administration to ensure a comfortable revenue over several years.

Investors and shareholders in the CapGemini Group are also reassured by the excellent visibility offered by predicted future financial results with an order book that is higher than last year’s turnover. This is a promising indication regarding the growth of the company.

Finally, the group gains points by completing payments to investors in the form of shares in a recurring manner.

Negative factors for Capgemini
The factors in favour of a drop in the Capgemini share price:

Firstly it should be remembered that CapGemini exercises its activities in a sector that is highly sensitive to deflation and which is also highly competitive. The group only holds tenth position worldwide and has trouble gaining new parts of the market in this context.

The finances of the group are also particularly sensitive to the personnel costs. These costs actually represent nearly 2/3 of the operating costs of the company and can therefore prove to be debilitating.

We are also disappointed by the significant slowdown in growth of the company’s activities on the American continent.  This lack of growth is mainly due to a decrease in the growth of the energy markets, particularly the natural gas and oil markets. Concerning other markets the analysts have also communicated their doubts and anxiety relating to the future of the British market over the medium term and the possibilities of a recession that would directly influence the sales of CapGemini in this country.

Finally, although the group is increasingly developing its activities in other countries its presence in emerging countries is still insufficient compared to those of its major competitors that have long been present, notably in Pacific Asia where CapGemini only achieves 5% of its sales.
