Accenture continues to take “tremendous” share and is positioned to benefit as its nearly 400,000 employees help companies transition to a cloud/digital world. Its first-quarter 2017 revenue increased 7% in local currency. Its digital/cloud/security offerings grew by double digits, accounting for 40% of total revenue. It has $4 billion in net cash and generated a 12% FCF margin. It generated a return on invested capital of 53% and return on equity of 62%. It maintained full-year outlook for revenue growth (5%-8% in local currency), operating margin, and FCF (of $4 billion to $4.3 billion), but lowered EPS guidance because of stronger assumed FX headwinds. It now expects full-year GAAP EPS of $5.64-$5.87, compared to previous guidance of $5.75-$5.98. Accenture remains one of the most recognized and valuable brands in the world, and it's an exemplar of doing well by doing good. It has been on Fortune’s World’s Most Admired Companies list for 14 consecutive years, Fortune’s 100 Best Companies to Work for eight consecutive years, and nine consecutive years on Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies list. Accenture’s Chairman and CEO is recognized by the Harvard Business Review as one of the 100 Best Performing CEO’s in the World.
As 2017 started, I see more job files coming into my company. It was a nice start since having to end 2016 with slower growth. I'm currently working 2 to 3 jobs, I'm constantly finding time just to catch rest. Sometimes, I even wonder why I work so hard despite not needing too. However, if you ask me to stop helping people, i can't do it. So just work hard till I drop -___-
Just finished the 3rd class for investing with an unfair advantage. With every class, my only goal is to have the most successful % of students each class compared to any other investing class out there. So far, not bad =)
Spend the next 6 mins hearing what he has to say if you haven't achieve any of your goals, the pain he went through and probably the pain most people will have.
