Currently there are 4 analysts that rate Sap a buy, 2 analysts rate it a sell, and 12 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates Sap as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, increase in stock price during the past year, reasonable valuation levels, good cash flow from operations and expanding profit margins. Although the company may harbor some minor weaknesses, we feel they are unlikely to have a significant impact on results. Get the full Sap Ratings Report now.
