Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about WPP plc - American Depositary Shares each representing five stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "WPP is one of the largest advertising companies in the world. The company has accumulated a vast portfolio of global and regional brands and survived the U.S., U.K. and global recessions. WPP completed 14 transactions in the first quarter, in accordance with its strategic focus on new markets, new media and data investment management. It is currently well poised to grow, as the global economy revives with the ushering of a strong momentum in the media and advertising industry worldwide. However, the company operates in a highly competitive and fragmented communication services industry that limits its profitability to some extent. High concentration risks and foreign currency volatility, particularly after the Brexit referendum, remain significant headwinds." (5/19/2017)
  • 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "Clients come and go, but awkward business mixes hang around, and as 2017 outlook disappointment reflects the former, not the latter, we expect shares to regroup. Reassessing caution in outlook, reflecting client M&A risk, will boost near-term volatility. Lowest PEG of peers remains a lure... China, flat for 2017, did accelerate to 3% growth in 2H. W. Continental Europe may pause its acceleration (3.6% in 2016 from 2.5% in 2015), given tough comp in Germany, up 7.3% in 2016. India still looks like DD growth in 2017, despite demonetization. We see North America, hit with client losses, only up ~1% in 2017, however." (3/6/2017)
