The Globe and Mail recently consulted Aaron Lanni, Portfolio Manager and Medici Partner, to better understand Alimentation Couche-Tard’s stock outlook.
Despite an excellent performance since the beginning of the year, Couche-Tard shares. have fallen by 18% since May (at the time of the article’s publication).
According to the article, Couche-Tard faces several obstacles, including the suspension of its activities in Russia, after the outbreak of the war in Ukraine.
Inflation is also a problem for the company.
