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 recorded relatively modest second-quarter results as earnings increased year over year although revenues declined. Nevertheless, the company exceeded the Zacks Consensus Estimates for both earnings and revenues. The increasing demand for media services, speedy growth of technologies and massive proliferation of channels are likely to improve the top line in the future. Omnicom maintains a balanced growth model through a combination of well-focused internal development initiatives and strategic acquisitions. The company is moving into new service areas and building upon its digital and analytical capabilities to spur growth in key markets. Stringent cost-cutting initiatives have further helped Omnicom to boost its margins in the second quarter. However, a competitive and fragmented communications services industry coupled with high susceptibility to concentration risks pose a threat to Omnicom’s profitability." (7/27/2017)
  • 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)
