EQS Group: Rating lautet Kaufen

Die Vorzeichen für die EQS Group AG sind positiv. Ein wesentlicher Umsatztreiber für das Jahr 2020 sollte die Migration von Bestandskunden vom COCKPIT in das COCKPIT 2.0 bedeuten. Darüber hinaus erwarten wir ein gutes Wachstum in den übrigen Bereichen, da die EQS mit vielen Produkten auch von der Coronakrise profitieren kann. So werden z. B. Online-Hauptversammlungen, Webcasts und Telefonkonferenzen vermehrt gebucht: Unseres Erachtens sollte es auch zu einer höhere Anzahl an Pflichtmeldungen von Unternehmen kommen. Unser Kursziel liegt bei 91,50 €, das Rating lautet weiter Kaufen.
