What are Wall Street analysts saying about Wpp Plc stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Wpp Plc stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "WPP is one of the largest advertising companies in the world and has accumulated a vast portfolio of global and regional brands. A geographically superior position in new markets and functional strength in new media and data investment management will likely help WPP in achieving steady revenue growth. The company is committed to return value to its shareholders through steady payment of dividends and stock repurchases. Dividends for first half 2017 represented an increase of 16.1% over the previous year with a payout ratio of 50%. However, the company underperformed the industry year to date. WPP is also weighed down by the economic fragility due to the Brexit referendum, political instability in the Middle East and a striking slowdown in the Chinese economy." (10/24/2017)
  • 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)
