Veolia reported weak Q3 numbers this morning, with EBITDA 1.7% below expectations. Current FY13 EBITDA consensus of EUR1.86bn implies 12% EBITDA growth in Q4 (vs. -8.0% in 9M13), which appears extremely optimistic to us, despite the increasing contribution of the cost-cutting measures.

We maintain our cautious stand in the short term, awaiting for a more attractive entry point, as we believe the medium-term story remains intact.
