Erfolgreiches Weihnachtsgeschäft in Aussicht: LUDWIG BECK bestätigt Guidance

Bei der Ludwig Beck AG läuft das wichtige vierte Quartal. Zwar konnte durch den langanhaltenden und heißen Sommer weniger Herbstmode als im Vorjahreszeitraum umgesetzt werden, die Prognose für das Gesamtjahr wurde jedoch bestätigt. Das vierte Quartal ist für den Einzelhandel der wichtigste Umsatz- und Ergebnislieferant und sollte mit dem Weihnachtsgeschäft deutlich wetterunabhängiger als die übrigen Quartale sein. Bei unserem Kursziel von 36,50 € je Aktie vergeben wir das Rating KAUFEN.
