Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Interpublic Group of Companies stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "Interpublic reported healthy fourth-quarter 2016 results with adjusted earnings comfortably beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate by $0.09. Its impressive results were driven by higher revenues owing to solid performances across all geographic regions as well as successful cost streamlining initiatives. The company expects to leverage new business wins to improve its future growth prospects. Interpublic’s digital capabilities, diversified business model and geographic reach offer a distinctive competitive advantage to its clients. The company hiked its quarterly dividend by 20% year over year to $0.18 per share. At the same time, it authorized a new share repurchase program to repurchase up to $300 million of common stock to reward its shareholders with healthy risk-adjusted returns. However, constrained marketing budgets from big clients are expected to slow down organic growth and lead to account loss headwinds for Interpublic." (2/15/2017)
