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, "A competitive and fragmented communications services industry coupled with high susceptibility to concentration risks pose a threat to Omnicom’s profitability. As the company expands its international operations, it is also highly exposed to risks from foreign exchange barriers, particularly after the Brexit referendum. Brexit could further result in higher tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade between the U.K. and the European Union, lowering its productivity. Strengthening U.S. dollar has also affected the company's revenues. However, Omnicom reported solid first-quarter results with healthy year-over-year increase in earnings and revenues that beat the respective Zacks Consensus Estimates. The increasing demand for media services, speedy growth of technologies and massive proliferation of channels are likely to improve the top-line growth. Omnicom also outperformed the industry in the last six months." (4/21/2017)
  • 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)
