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

Of course the Travis Perkins Group does not only offer advantages in terms of investment, there are also certain disadvantages. Here therefore are the company’s major weak points at present:

  • Firstly we are disappointed by the fact that this group is not present on the international market. This essentially leads to a higher exposure to risk in the case of an economic recession in the United Kingdom, whereas this company’s competitors are present in a number of countries which lessens the risk.
  • Finally, the second and last weak point of this company that we note is related to the direct competition in this activity sector which is very strong and implicates a limited part of this market and necessitates a strong competitiveness, notably concerning the sale prices, which does of course affect its profitability.
