What Is VINCI SA (DG)?
Vinci SA, which is corporately styled VINCI, is a French concession and construction company. Founded by Alexandre Giros and Louis Loucheur in 1899 as Société Générale d’Enterprises, it is headquartered in Rueil-Malmaison, Paris, France. The company is known globally for designing, financing, building, operating, and maintaining infrastructure, facilities, and public amenities.

With a market capitalization of €52.458 billion and shareholders, such as the US fund BlackRock and the government of Qatar, VINCI SA is a popular stock for trading and investment on the Euronext’s Paris stock exchange (EPA). It is also a member of the Euro Stoxx 50 index, a stock index of Eurozone stocks.
What Affects VINCI SA (DG) Stock Price?
There is a range of internal and external factors that can increase or decrease the price of DG shares. Listed below are three of the major factors affecting its price:
- The time that a construction company takes to complete a project affects its revenue. Since such companies charge for the entire project and not hourly, delivery delays can lead to a drastic fall in revenue.
- Supply costs can largely affect how much the company makes from a project. These costs are not consistent, and neither is the availability of the required materials.
- If a project cannot be financed by the company’s own assets, loans taken from the bank or other companies can lead to higher interest rates.
VINCI SA (DG) Price In The Past
Since VINCI SA is over 100 years old and has remained on the EPA for a long time, there have been too many bearish and bullish movements in its history to report briefly. However, a fair idea of its price over the decades and performance on the stock exchange can be gained from the chart below.
The first interesting period appears to be 2005-2009, where a bullish movement led the price to the then-high of €59.57. However, this price sharply started to decline from 2007 until 2009 due to the Great Recession. Despite fluctuations over the years, the graph shows an upward trajectory for DG for almost the next decade.
The price briefly touched the €100 mark in 2019 before being severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, bringing it from its high of €107 to below €60 in a little over a month. While the stock price has tried to recover since the drastic, coronavirus-induced plunge in February 2020, the value of DG still has not been able to reach the pre-Covid high or even cross €100.
