To summarize, we found that Factset Research Systems Inc ranked in the 30th percentile in terms of potential gain offered. We should note, though, that the most conservative analysis suggests this stock will yield negative results -- and thus may be a potential short opportunity. In terms of the factors that were most noteworthy in this DCF analysis for FDS, they are:
The company's debt burden, as measured by earnings divided by interest payments, is 57.77 -- which is good for besting 93.56% of its peer stocks (US stocks in the Financial Services sector with positive cash flow).
