A company this size cannot be reliant on just a handful of individuals. Succession planning is vital.

is there any hope for Wpp. Still holding but this is collapsing with never a word or update. So little information about this business.

Interesting that the group has stoped being a partner for 2019 with sorrells favourite junkit, WEF Davos,the employer of Lady Sorrell. The other global agency groups are still partners. It would have been difficult for Mark Read to cope with stepping into Sorrells snow shoes but no doubt Sorrell will be getting a free by pass from his good lady. Could she get one for Carlos Ghosn too as he is big there but Renault/Nissan unlikely to cough up.

End of the cycle and I've come circling to find a bargain. I'm going to watch this go to sub 500 before starting to add, what will then a be a monster dividend bargain.

MCAP 11B / Debt 5B / HY uPBT £735M Consensus FY18 ePBT £1.83B / £1.3B for recent margin reduction = x 8.46 Kantor valued at £3.5B and for sale (underperforming) I would say WPP has been overly battered on the recent market worries and now is the time to start building a position. Negatives December statement will show the cost of Restructuring Debt high in rising interest rate market Losing significant accounts

Analyst said three years for a turnaround. Will the dividend be cut in future?

The way investment professionals avoid disaster is by never committing too much to any one stock. There is no other way. They sometimes get it totally and utterly wrong just like the rest of us.

a fall of almost 60% in less than 2 years is a disaster. no doubt the new management and the promise of drastic action will result in huge write downs at year end. still holding, the consensus was that this was a sound company 2 years ago. These highly paid professional investors could not get it that wrong could they?

careful I did the same as you but I sold yesterday at a loss. I see a recession coming due to the influence on world trade by Trump hence bad times for the advertising industry which does not fair well in downturns as company budgets on everything are cut especially advertising. I maybe wrong but its going to take something spectacular for this one to recover to my purchase price. Fortunately only a low level punt by me so the losses are not painful.

You just have to hope that this random collection of businesses knows what it is doing and is adapting to change in the smartest way possible. 'Never buy share that you do not understand, keep it simple' said Buffett. Well I do not have a clue about this business that Sorrell created or what its prospects are going forward. I bought after the share price fall during the Sorrell incident but I am now well down. Not a chartist, but the trend is strongly down, with never an encouraging comment from any quarter. Holding and hoping, advertising is a huge industry.

I don't go for gloating at the misfortunes of others. But TradeJunkie could easily be right. Hard times are exactly when a business should be spending more on advertising, but in practice they usually do the opposite.

careful 25 Oct '18 - 09:19 - 552 of 558 Strip out intangibles and net assets are below zero. The Chairman of J Walter Thompson, years before it was taken over by WPP, said the trouble with his business was that the assets walked out of the building every day at 5 o'clock.

Another poor quality ftse 100 company with useless management, Sorrel should have gone years ago. Ftse becoming uninvestable, falling over like skittles, as T Smith says, its just full of rubbish, high dividends but declining business models and capital destruction. As a holder of these (feel sick) just pray for a takeover bid, someone comes in breaks it up and sells it off and can at least clear cost, it has a decent breakup value, for now, but the way it is going that may not last.

This is more than just MS leaving, cracks were beginning to show well in advance. Mentioned the net debt here previously.

Having read the statement more closely I feel more encouraged about the future. Clients won, lost and retained. This is a huge industry and WPP must adapt to the changes. 'not in structural decline, but structural change..' All to play for, probably a good entry point. The shorters are now doubt out in force today, another coordinated pre arranged attack. A feature of modern market. Historic PE of 6 and yield 7% may be meaningless but it is a measure of the share decline. Down for a peak of £19.

A coup, me too, PC manufactured moral outrage = 50% drop in shareprice. Was it worth it to the folks behind it?

Sir Martin's decision to start a new venture has echoes of his reverse takeover of Wire and Plastics Products in 1985. The maker of wire shopping baskets was turned into WPP, and over 30 years became the world's biggest advertising company with revenues of over £15bn. It’s why I invested in Sorrell’s new venture S4 Capital (SFOR) adding more at current levels too but not these, longtime chart support from 7yrs ago 800p but for now these have dropped out of the falling trend channel Added (ABDP) this morning Dyor as usual

Fancy letting the No.1 man go with all his knowledge and contacts.To top it all no start up clause for Sorrell. Incredible.
