What are Wall Street analysts saying about Interpublic Group of Companies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Interpublic Group of Companies stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Interpublic reported decent second-quarter 2018 results wherein the bottom line met the Zacks Consensus Estimate, the top line beat the same. The company's  digital capabilities, diversified business model and geographic reach offer a distinctive competitive advantage. It continues to look for strategic investments and buyouts to expand in high-growth regions and key world markets. Interpublic’s consistent efforts to reward its shareholders with dividend and share repurchases are appreciable. Shares of the company outperformed its industry in the past year. However, the company’s global presence makes it vulnerable to foreign currency fluctuations. Its cash position is affected by seasonality in business.  Client concentration can be a major hindrance to Interpublic’s business. A debt-laden balance sheet is another concern." (8/8/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We upgraded our recommendations on IPG, Publicis and WPP in August, October and November, respectively from Hold to Buy as each of these stocks over-reacted on the down-side because of a range of issues impacting the industry became pronounced concerns for investors. However, following relatively positive moves on the sector for IPG and Publicis, we see stocks in the sector as close enough to full valuations to warrant a downgrade at the present time. However, we continue to see relative value within the group, with relatively more upside for WPP and relatively more downside for Omnicom. Each of the four holding companies we cover are now rated Hold." (2/19/2018)
  • 3. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "We believe IPG’s assets are broadly competitive and that investors place too much emphasis on the scale argument across the agency landscape. However, we acknowledge an array of headwinds currently facing the agency holding companies and, amid this backdrop, we view current valuation as full.
