our haven: Share buyback and reduction of debt to the low end of leverage should see the share price rise steadily from here. However always prefer special dividends to buybacks. Debt needed reduction.
ok,yah: Any ideas about the share price weakness this morning?
venezuela45: This one must be due a dividend cut soon. More bad news for investors given the poor share price performance
careful: divi held. results not good but maybe a bit better than expected after share price collapse.
careful: 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.
maxk: Timelines..
erogenous jones: careful, the musings of a few herberts on a financial BB are not going to make the very slightest of difference to the share price of this company. I doubt that were there to be a concerted effort by say the contributors of this thread to chuck our combined wealth at this that we would be able to acquire more than 20% issued share capital. Yes, that would move the share price, but do you really believe that considering and articulating changes has any effect on the share price? The company has had a shrewd player at the tiller building an empire that smacks of monopoly economics. I wager that the major players in the M&A game have considered this for years and until they have got their ducks in a line, they are not prepared to pounce. Change is inevitable, but the extent and scope may be very different and riddled with nuance
justiceforthemany: WPP is now being circled by some of the largest private equity groups in the world, and therefore should be the next FTSE 100 company to be taken over. Just for a change the company, politicians, and regulators will probably be happy this goes through. All of this from the private equity vultures does of course takes advantage of the share price drop, something which implies that the company could be bought for £15-£18 in the wake of Sir Martin Sorrell’s alleged activities. (I won’t tell, if you don’t – Rock n’ Roll.) Ironically, if this target price is achieved, Sir Martin will probably be millions or even billions better off than if recent events had not occured…so a happy ending.
isamaximiser: The case for investing in WPP Even the long and most glorious reign must come to an end and so Sir Martin Sorrell has shuffled off his mortal WPP coil. Sir Martin Sorrell is the wrong person to lead WPP. The time for a buccaneering founder as the manager of WPP has passed and he wasn’t worth the money. A view held by many shareholders. The FBI managed to continue after the demise of J Edgar Hoover and so will WPP thrive after Sir Martin’s departure. Indeed, the board already had a succession plan in place. Markets tend to overreact at times like these. It’s time to buy in the glitch as whoever takes over will bring a fresh perspective that surely the company needs. After 30 years plus it’s time for a new set of eyes on the company and a chief executive’s pay packet that puts the interests of shareholders higher than the whims of a founder. Indeed the High Pay Centre found a negligible link between FTSE 350 chief executive pay and the companies share price performance. The essential problem companies like WPP face is that internet companies have better data to prove the effectiveness of their clients’ advertising budgets. I don’t think this is a completely unsolvable problem for the advertising industry and internet companies now have their own problems. It should also be noted that actually Facebook, Google ect aren’t new. They may well be priced into the WPP price already. There could also be further developments going forward that limit the ability of these companies to track their users so comprehensively due to consumer and political pressure. Yes companies can and do go to Facebook and Google direct but that doesn’t abolish the advertising industry. It will have to adapt to prosper but I think the company is certainly capable of that and with Sorrell’s departure if anything it makes change in the company easier. The P/E ratio at 8.25 is really good and companies with low P/E values perform better over the long term compared to companies with high P/E values. Indeed, it has one of the lowest P/E values in the FTSE 100. Look at the consistent growth of the dividend, look at the growth in income and profits. This is a company that is valued too lowly given the results that it has been able to produce. Indeed the discounted cash flow analysis on estimated that the company is 40% undervalued with its present share price. Conclusion WPP is a decent company facing some headwinds but which company isn’t? It’s also going cheap and that is the time to buy. In at 1127p
bookbroker: The share price fall could get ugly from here on, looks good value, but is there a trap door that is going to open, think Sorrrell era may be over, but then the market may cheer! Certainly built this from scratch, extraordinary achievement, new media making the disparate make-up of WPP difficult to manage, and those intangibles colossal should they need to write-down assets!
