The advertising and communications giant also offers predictability and a bargain price

Recently, I’ve profiled several companies on two important GuruFocus screens: The High-Yield Dividend Screener and the High-Dividend Yield Stocks in Guru's Portfolios. The first includes stocks with dividends greater than 4%, while the second takes in stocks that yield at least 4% and are found in the portfolios of the investing gurus.

But there was a problem with that approach—too many dividend stocks that had low predictability scores (with predictability defined as consistently growing revenue and earnings per share). You can find the predictability score, in yellow stars, in the top left corner of a stock’s summary page,

These companies ranked highly on Greenblatt's Magic Formula stock ranking

Joel Greenblatt (Trades, Portfolio) introduced the individual investing world to the “Magic Formula” when he published his 2005 book, “The Little Book That Beats the Market.” The idea behind the Magic Formula is to apply a simple mathematical formula to find good businesses trading at bargain prices.

The formula ranks companies based on the combination of two metrics: earnings yield and return on capital. As the formula works best when applied to U.S. companies and companies with market caps of at least $100 million, it also eliminates companies that do not meet these criteria, as small-cap and

A popular metric used by borrowers has lost much of its meaning

Ebitda is a popular acronym that stands for “earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization.” It has become a popular metric for measuring a company’s financial health, and has seen especially widespread use within private credit markets.

However, its usage has come under fire in recent years. Indeed, it has even become something of a punchline for some credit specialists. For example, in 2017, an anonymous Moody’s credit analyst made the now-infamous observation that Ebitda now appears to stand for “Eventually Busted, Interesting Theory, Deeply Aspirational.”

It pays out more than $700 million a year in dividends alone

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. However, with all this garbage news, the company still pounds out cash. For investors looking at WPP PLC (WPP)'s stock, it has been unfairly punished by the market, and compared to its peers, is significantly undervalued.

The entire advertising industry is still in the midst of change due to new Internet and social media

Buy WPP on bad news and market weakness

Consolidation within the advertising agency industry has resulted in the "big five:" WPP (WPP), Omnicom (OMC), Interpublic Group (IPS), Publicis Groupe (PUBGY), and Dentsu (DNTUF). Collectively, they generate nearly 30% of the world’s total ad revenue. Even with platforms like Facebook, Google, SnapChat, Twitter, Amazon and the countless other websites garnering advertising dollars, agencies will continue to be instrumental for ideas and services to both executive strategy and track the effectiveness of ads.

One company dominates the space: WPP Plc. It has a market capitalization of $20 billion and generates over $2.3 billion in annual profit on north of $20
