Just a shame more of the high director salaries is not put into the business instead.

hpcg One argue against that trend, and indeed which offsets discounting, is premiumisation. One strong consumer trend which is seen in several markets today is that people are willing to pay more for premium products, and are offsetting that by being prudent with spending on areas which are less of a priority for them (i.e. buy premium whiskies and compensate by, say, buying clothes from TK Maxx rather than more expensive places or shopping at Aldi rather than Tesco). Therefore there is definitely a need/benefit from a company's products being seen as a premium product, and hence a need of clever advertising / marketing. Adam

Added these to the 'buy and forget about' part of my portfolio - great brand, market leader and available at a decent price.

Should be buying opportunities, with buybacks and M&A happening you would bet

Presumably bell pottingers demise could be wpp's gain?

Unless it is properly and we'll attribbed. Scatter gun open loop approach no longer works and can be counter productive. You give some decent examples.

WPP spend CLIENT money on things such as Facetwit. Having seen the damage that social media can do to a brand, the "digital" approach is not necessarily the way forward. Look at the "focussed advertising" that you are seeing right now on ADVFN. Having done a few searches for things I can do and see when in USA next week and booked them, I might add, the cookies to which we sign up produces "clever" adverts. Funnily enough, there is not a dogs chance in booking the same thing again so this is the sort of spend that is made for clients. I bet it is not actually working. However, what IS working in that I am starting to think about next years skiing holidays, and funnily enough the sites that I have looked at have started to appear in the ads from time to time. Those re-inforce the site, but in the same way, I have had a terrible experience on a flight where I am persuing a claim in the courts, so I am getting adverts for solicitors plus the very carrier I am suing! So, how does one account for the usefulness of digital advertising? Digital advertising has rather become meaningless and an irritation as far as I am concerned.

The future will be better analytics to measure bang per buck. WPP spend a forune with facebook, google etc but how well do they attribute the response? The days of demanding accurate attribution are here. Deliver that and prosper else see growth fall off. The big advertisers are demanding more for.less due to margin pressures.

Well worth a read, 3 levers are likely off & they need to do something. Acquisitions imho to plug gaps and offer new services. HTtp://adage.com/article/agency-news/packaged-good-giants-culprits-wpp-s-growth-downgrade/310212/

All the large consumer goods and packaged goods companies are under substantial margin pressure. This is only likely to increase. Reducing wasted marketing spend goes straight to the bottom line. Once the likes of P&G and Unilever start this game others follow. Pressure on WPP will not abate but spread outside of NA.

As an example, a few months back I read P&G decided to slash on line ad spend by 50% and monitor the outcome. There was no discernible change to life-like sales over the monitoring period. The question was then asked what if it's slashed another 50% etc. What does this mean outside of some online spend is wasted? Quite a bit wasted the way I read it. Look for companies that can measure attribution as proof of sales vs online ad spend and help improve return on spend. WPP could well go on the acquisition trail for such companies. WPP is a great company but needs to go very carefully as disruption can cause even the likes of WPP to stagnate unless they adapt fast and prove their worth in increased end product sales vs marketing spend.

1 year RSI = 26 [oversold] MOTLEY UK Long view (BUY) There are two reasons. The first is that this is a market-leading business with a long-term outlook. WPP’s continual small acquisitions have enabled the group to progressively ramp up its exposure to digital marketing, which now accounts for 41% of revenue. The second reason is that although the shares could have further to fall, I think a fair amount of bad news is already in the price. After today’s fall, the stock trades on a forecast P/E of about 11, with a prospective yield of 4.5%. I reckon that could be a good entry point for a long-term holding.

What chance Sorrel will go on the acquisition trail to update growth prospects? He can an only blame externals for so long.

And Young's Brewery, one of the few safe shares that gets round inheritance tax in 2 years rather than 7. But then, ADVFN is essentially for day traders.

How much of this is down to: 1) Smaller competitors becoming more savvy and stealing clients? 2) Others following P&G to see the impact? 3) WPP being behind the curve as the market changes? There's more than Brexit and Trump behind this IMHO. Both impact but are also convenient to hide behind to not expose other problems.

Yes, just like UBM. 2.7bl capitalization and no posts since your last one.

I stand corrected. That makes it even odder - it means there is no real coverage on this important share.
