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 2017 results as earnings increased year over year although revenues declined. 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. Stringent cost-cutting initiatives have further helped Omnicom to boost its margins in the quarter. The company 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. Brexit could further result in higher tariff and non-tariff barriers to trade between the U.K. and the European Union, lowering its productivity. Moreover, as Omnicom expands its international operations, it highly exposes itself to risks from foreign exchange barriers and uncertainty from monetary devaluation with strength in U.S. dollars." (7/31/2017)
  • 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)
