2018 was a difficult year for the world's largest advertising agency, with its stock down 40% since January as the company has lost accounts, failed to secure talent recruits, suffered the troubles of Brexit -- and don't forget the CEO misconduct scandal from earlier this year.

What is the counterargument to my question? Also, what do you
