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’s digital capabilities, diversified business model and geographic reach offer a distinctive competitive advantage. Interpublic continues to look for strategic investments and buyouts to expand in high-growth regions and key world markets. The company’s efforts in reducing costs, continuous margin improvement, encouraging balance sheet and better capital structure should improve its profitability. Interpublic also outperformed the industry in the six three months. However, Interpublic is likely to be stifled by the renegotiated deals and restrictions imposed on trade with other European Union members post the Brexit referendum, lowering its productivity. Stiff competition and concentration risks act as other major headwinds." (6/6/2018)
  • 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.
