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

If you are considering buying or selling ENI stock, you should of course not rely solely on your intuition to take a position online. An effective strategy is based on a comprehensive understanding of a company's ability to gain and maintain investor confidence over the long term. To be able to anticipate the underlying trends of an asset such as ENI shares, it is therefore necessary first and foremost to be familiar with the strengths and weaknesses of this major energy group. To help you do this, we have chosen to list the strengths and weaknesses of this value here. Let's start, of course, with the advantages that this company has and that could support its future growth.

One of the ENI group's greatest assets is, of course, its very appreciable positioning on the world energy market. Indeed, the European group has succeeded in making its mark among the giants of this sector and is today, thanks to the quality and diversity of its services, one of the best known companies in this sector throughout the world.

Another major asset of the ENI Group is the way it manages the energy supply chain. In fact, in addition to being one of the world's largest oil and natural gas production companies, ENI is involved in the entire energy supply chain, from extraction to distribution, including refining and marketing. As a result, it depends on few subcontractors and intermediaries and can manage its distribution and marketing strategies independently.

But to achieve this positioning among the leaders of its market, the ENI group can rely on various assets. First of all, it should be noted that this company is one of the oldest to carry out this activity in Europe, which gives it a certain amount of experience in the face of competitors who arrived later in the sector. On the other hand, ENI tends to remain at the top of the ranking thanks to the development over time of its research and development capacities. In this way, it is able to solve any problems and face the changes taking place in the consumer society with greater serenity.

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

First of all, we are going to raise here an important point to be aware of regarding the financial aspect of this group. Indeed, ENI has been facing for some years now certain financial problems that have been pointed out by analysts and penalised by the market. This concerns in particular the repercussions of the recent European financial crisis, which have of course had a direct impact on ENI's activities and contributed to a decrease in its level of profitability.

Analysts specialising in this market also point the finger at the poor quality of the ENI group's administration which, despite numerous changes in recent years, still has difficulty in managing production costs and the strategy for selling its energies and associated services. Indeed, the objectives set by the management are only rarely achieved, which naturally weighs on the morale of investors.

Still with regard to the weaknesses of this company, the more than disappointing results of certain branches of the group are also to be regretted. This mainly concerns the petrochemicals division, which for some years has been performing below expectations despite its importance in the distribution of the group's activities. The weight of this recession is of course significant on the group's overall results.

While the ENI Group benefits from total management of its energy supply chain and the services it provides, this asset can also prove to be a disadvantage as it reduces the amount of relationships with other major energy players in the world. This results in less visibility in certain areas and greater difficulty in penetrating certain markets internationally.

Finally, one will also note the disappointment of investors when the ENI group abandons some of its development projects, as was the case in the 1960s with the abandonment of the construction of an oil factory in England. This type of unpleasantness could indeed happen again and result in immediate sanctions on the stock market.

The information supplied here is only for indicative purposes and should not be used without the completion of a comprehensive and complete fundamental analysis of this asset notably taking into account exterior data, future publications and announcements and all fundamental events and news that could influence the strengths and weaknesses or make them more or less significant.
