A possible break of EUR 6.10-20 in due course may suggest the share’s ready to muscle its way far higher. It’s fascinating to note that price level corresponds to a KWG market cap of about EUR 100 mio: Which is precisely the level I highlighted as a possible sweet spot for the market to award KWG a significantly higher price/book valuation!
