The profit margins have been fairly low in the previous years, although the sales growth has been quite strong in the last 2 years. However, the company has an established model and the digital leverage should help the company grow business rapidly. However, investors must remember that this is a traditionally low margin business and the overhang on digital stocks is likely to continue for now. That could be an overhang on valuations, so this stock would be best suited to someone with a long term perspective or those with a higher risk appetite.
