Morningstar | WPP Controls the Scale and the Prestigious Agencies Necessary to Retake Its Leading Position

WPP is the largest player within the advertising space, operating in more than 110 countries worldwide. We expect the firm to maintain its market-leading position as it generates competitive organic growth, continues to make acquisitions, and increases focus on the faster-growing emerging and the overall digital ad markets. We look for WPP’s acquisition growth strategy to continue, as the firm has consistently brought in smaller local ad agencies and quickly gained traction in other faster-growing international markets. Historically, WPP has also aggressively acquired larger players in the spa...

ODDO BHF SECURITIES MORNING NEWS – DETAILED COMMENTS 12/12/2018

Are we about to see the deterioration of "actuarial" themes via a repricing linked to the rise in interest rates and therefore a value rotation, or the return to a lacklustre economic environment, resulting in an umpteenth phase where the growth style prevails in 2019? The European equation is particularly complex. While, in the context of monetary normalisation, the macro scenario argues in favour of a hike in interest rates (and therefore value exposure), the reality, which is curre...

Va-t-on assister à la dégradation des thématiques « actuarielles » via un repricing lié à la hausse des taux et donc à une rotation value, ou bien au retour d'une conjoncture médiocre menant à une nième phase de domination de la croissance en 2019 ? L’équation européenne est particulièrement compliquée. Alors que le scénario macroéconomique plaide, dans un contexte de normalisation monétaire, pour une hausse des taux (et donc une exposition value), la réalité, pour le moment médiocre ...

On this basis, we value the group at 1,120p per share and we are upgrading our recommendation from Neutral to Buy. Cf report published yesterday night. - ...
