What are analysts saying about Omnicom Group stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Omnicom Group stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Omnicom reported relatively healthy third-quarter 2017 results with earnings beating the Zacks Consensus Estimate by 3 cents on modest organic growth. Omnicom maintains a balanced growth model through a combination of well-focused internal development initiatives and strategic acquisitions. Increasing demand for media services and massive proliferation of channels are likely to improve the top line in future. Omnicom has outperformed the industry year to date. However, a competitive and fragmented communications services industry coupled with high susceptibility to concentration risks pose a threat to Omnicom’s profitability. Post the Brexit referendum, it becomes difficult for the company to increase revenues and reduce costs. Brexit could further result in higher tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade between the U.K. and the European Union, lowering its productivity." (10/18/2017)
  • 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "while U.S. economy showed improvements in 4Q16 over 4Q15, we trim our above-Street estimates on possible top line pressures; cost control could help 2017 outlook, however. While maintaining our organic growth of 4.6% for 4Q16 on easier comp against 4Q15 project revenue drop-off, and positive impact from major account wins, 5%-point 3Q16 deceleration has us cautious on 4Q top line. We also adjust our 2016/17 negative f/x impact to 1.9%/1.4% from 1.6%/0.8%, largely on weaker British Pound. Our 2016/17E EPS go to $4.76/$5.11 from $4.77/$5.15 vs. Street $4.74/$5.06." (2/2/2017)
