What are 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, surviving the U.S., U.K. and global recessions. A geographically superior position in new markets and functional strength will likely help WPP in achieving steady revenue growth in the future. With a balanced organic and inorganic growth model, the company offers a healthy dividend payout to reward shareholders with risk-adjusted returns. WPP also offered a relatively bullish guidance for 2017 based on favorable growth dynamics. The company outperformed the industry year to date. However, WPP is likely to be stifled by the renegotiated deals and restrictions imposed on trade with other European Union members post Brexit referendum." (7/13/2017)
  • 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)
