SAP AG provides enterprise application software and software-related services worldwide. SAP SE has a market cap of $92.8 billion and is part of the computer software & services industry. Shares are down 9.3% year-to-date as of the close of trading on Monday. Currently there are 5 analysts that rate SAP SE a buy, 1 analyst rates it a sell, and 7 rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates SAP SE as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, notable return on equity, reasonable valuation levels and increase in net income. Although no company is perfect, currently we do not see any significant weaknesses which are likely to detract from the generally positive outlook. Get the full SAP SE Ratings Report now.
