In WPP's interims today, the outlook statement highlighted the: 'Continuing implementation of growth strategy with revenue ratios for fast growth markets and new media raised to 40-45% over next three to four years.' Like many large ad agencies WPP has been slow to embrace digital, the mobile ad tech revolution, and new growth markets - as evidenced by their list of acquisitions this year, which strongly suggests they are playing catch-up re-positioning the business in the direction the fast evolving global economy is now moving. WPP - Acquisitions 'In line with the Group's strategic focus on new markets, new media and data investment management, the Group completed 23 transactions in the first six months; 9 acquisitions and investments were in new markets and 18 in quantitative and digital. Of these, 1 was driven by individual client or agency needs and 5 were in both new markets and quantitative and digital. A further 8 acquisitions and investments were made in July and August, with one in advertising and media investment management in Germany; one in branding & identity in Italy; and six in digital eCommerce & shopper marketing in the United States, France, the United Arab Emirates, China and Brazil.'

"the business is in a good place right now regarding throwing off cash....I still feel the opportunities for outsourcing in this sector are significant.....I would be reinvesting this cash because it is a way to expand the company sizeably whilst not having to acquire the business and by sticking to what they know already, very well." I totally agree. If the organic expansion of the existing business is efficiently implemented there is still a lot more mileage here particularly as it currently remains undervalued in my view.

I think everyone seems to have done pretty well on this one Mas. Which makes a nice change. :-)

Well JT, @13.25p you've almost got to a 4 bagger. With the latest interims, the dividends also collectively amount to 15p since then so we've both recovered our initial purchase price. However, my current average cost is just over 30p since I've added on a number of subsequent occasions.

Whilst on the thread Mas, I think the business is in a good place right now regarding throwing off cash. I just hope the management don't lose sight of the opportunities still there for outsourcing in the more boring British banking sector. I still feel the opportunities for outsourcing in this sector are significant. The solutions lend toward a more monopolistic approach by the banks in order for the customer and the sector to gain the greater benefits and CMS is still the obvious first choice partner. It just needs a bold approach by the company in order to see it through the the logical conclusion. Anyway, that's where I would be reinvesting this cash because it is a way to expand the company sizeably whilst not having to acquire the business and by sticking to what they know already, very well. It's a one-off, once in a lifetime opportunity imo and in the meantime that will be complimented by the overseas strategy

Hi MasJust checked back and I made large purchases each at 13.25p on 29/1/2010 and 2/2/2010. I bought by arrangement direct with the selling fund and thought I got a fire sale bargain but it subsequently traded mid-day at 12.5p later the following week as I recall. I considered calling the selling fund yet again but felt I had enough by that time. :-)

Hi JT - I think that was actually late 2009 since I made my first investment here @15p on 6/01/10.

'Two bagger', did he buy these at circa 25p then? Didn't realise it had gone that low, cant see that on the chart?

Main point from the above referenced article. "This is a firm whose shares tumbled a good few years ago and has been making slow but steady progress ever since. I bought during one of its soggy points and am now sitting on a two bagger. The company used to be primarily known as a direct mail company. It still does advertising by post, but it’s also good at advertising by email. And it handles office work, like printing and invoicing, for bigger outfits. It still looks a cheap share at 51p. But that might not last forever. The P/E ratio that I have is only 12 and the dividend yield is 4.47% - which isn’t bad for a penny share."

Attempts at dividend arbitrage is a small, novice punter's game. And even then hardly likely with a 0.89p dividend. So highly implausible imho.

Why? Run up to divvy or was it tipped somewhere? Been going sideways in this for a while, need to decide if I'm going to stick with it...

Yes, some solid volume without any significant individual transactions. There are around 70 trades so far today at a modest average size of circa 5,000 shares or £2500 in value

Pushing upwards this week, and decent volumes so far today too. Good to see - perhaps we've reached a tipping point here at last.

300,000 volume by 10am and a positive intra day price reversal - a rare bird for CMS.

It is the same one that zho gave on the 3rd Aug. post 1372. Masurenguy - perhaps you could add it to the others in the header.

Some cold souls on this board to downvote me in favour of people dying more quickly....! That said, CMS is firmly on my watchlist.

In another month we will be going ex dividend for a dividend that represents just shy of 2%. This is just the interim dividend. I wonder why this together with pe of about 10 and the consistent growth we have seen over the last few years that this share is not motoring ahead. Everything about this company smacks of quality. The management here are second to none with a plan that they are executing well. Higher margins, evolving into digital from print diversifying from financial service focused to fmcg and other clients and increasing overseas business from pure U.K. focus. Debt is being paid off at a pace and pension liability is in hand with an agreed and manageable payment scheme. Cash is king and communisis is generating lots of it. Clients are mostly blue chip with long term contracts and now government as well. What is there not to like.
