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

To enable you to refine an investment strategy on the Easyjet share price, particularly if you plan to invest in this asset over the medium to long term, you should examine this company’s growth capabilities. To do so, we recommend you particularly compare the strengths and weaknesses of the Easyjet Company which represent a basic element in the strategy of numerous traders. Let us start here with a presentation of the various strong points of this group before examining its weaknesses.  

The first great advantage of the Easyjet Group is in fact related to its name. This was actually reached after a great deal of reflection and was chosen to be easy to remember by its clients in all the destination countries whatever their native language. This brand name also offers an important reminder that enables the group to benefit from a strong reputation and maximise the impact of its communications strategy.

Another advantage of the Easyjet group also concerns the fact that this airline company serves a large number of destinations. It thereby enables visitors to travel to most major European destinations and is therefore a first choice flight company. In fact, Easyjet still continues to widen its range by regularly adding new destinations.

Still on the subject of this company’s advantages from a strategic point of view we can also note that this company only uses one particular model of aircraft. This notably enables the company to significantly reduce its training costs as well as those of maintenance and supervision while still keeping to its profit margins.

One particular point that has enabled Easyjet to become one of the major players in the air travel sector has of course been that it was the first low cost airline company to sell its flights uniquely online. This strategy has enabled the company to reduce the number of its intermediaries thereby enabling it to be more independent and also reduce its distribution costs. Even now the Easyjet website is one of the most popular e-commerce websites for people looking for flights.

Finally, let us conclude this examination of the advantages of Easyjet shares by underlining the recruitment strategy of this company which is original and also highly judicious. Easyjet in fact created its own academy for training its onboard personnel. This strategy notably enables it to easily provide its own pilots and cabin attendants with its employees already involved in the company and directly aware of its policies.

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

As you have no doubt understood, the Easyjet aviation company displays numerous advantages thus displaying great promise for its future growth and therefore a rise in its stock market share price. However these advantages are not the only elements that you should take into account before starting to speculate on this asset. It is important to also examine the weaknesses of this company as its albeit few disadvantages that we will now examine could exert a negative influence on the growth of this asset’s price.  

Firstly, although the group possesses certain advantages over its competitors it also has certain weaknesses. We particularly note the lack of a loyalty programme up to now for its clients as this would enable it to encourage repeat customers over the long term with obvious advantages and thereby reduce the temptation for clients to change to its competitors’ services.

On the other hand, the fact that Easyjet is positioned on the lower price flights sector is also a disadvantage that you should be aware of. The fact that its flight prices are low means that the group has to deal with lower margins threatened by various outside factors such as taxes and supplementary charges imposed by certain governments. 

Finally, the last notable weak point of the Easyjet Company this time concerns its strong dependency on its suppliers. The fact that this company trusts only a limited number of suppliers for its airplanes and other requirements does of course present a major risk notably if its suppliers have to face operational problems.

You will note that the disadvantages of Easyjet are actually less numerous than its many advantages. However their weight may be sufficient to impact the price of its shares and you should therefore be able to anticipate their effects on the historical charts and moderate your decisions.
