Guru Investment Theses on The Interpublic Group of Companies Inc

John Rogers Comments on Interpublic Group of Cos. - Jan 22, 2016

Advertising concern Interpublic Group of Cos., Inc. (NYSE:IPG) advanced +22.32% after a strong quarterly earnings report. Based on revenues and margin that were better than the prior year, the company earned $0.27 per share—ahead of the $0.25 per share expectation. We still think advertising is expanding in ways that drive Interpublic Group’s success, while the crowed is pessimistic about ads in general and established advertising firms in specific.
