The newspaper also reports that analysts expect strong earnings performance from Ferrovial.
Bankinter's team of analysts highlight the company's future revenue visibility: "The services division, which generates 35% of EBITDA, has increased its backlog by 6.2%."
The paper also underlined Ferrovial's internationalisation and its strategic assets
as further support for the stock. “The company's 43% stake in the 407 ETR in Canada and 25% stake in Heathrow Airport Holdings in London provide close to 100 million euro in earnings from equity-accounted affiliates. Their value should be boosted by higher tolls in Canada and traffic at Heathrow," said Bankinter, which describes debt (6x EBITDA) as "bearable". In technical analysis terms, Ferrovial is on the rise in all markets.
As for fundamentals, it continues to trade below the sector average and its ratios are very stable", says Gonzalo Recarte, a portfolio manager at Saxo Bank.
