The major partners of Publicis

The factors in favour of a rise in the Publicis share price:

Firstly it should be noted that the Publicis Group holds an advantageous position relating to its activity sector on an international level. In fact, Publicis actually holds third position worldwide in advertising worldwide after its two major competitors WWP and Omnicom.

The analysts also point out the new organisation implemented by the Publicis Group as a highly positive point following the acquisition of the American company Sapient.  In fact, this new organisation offers an advantageous balance between the analogical activities that currently represents 45% of its total activities and relates to classic advertising activities, and its digital activities.  The latter sector is experiencing a boom in growth at present and generates an increasing part of the company’s income.

The Publicis Group also benefits from an advantageous position in the American market. In fact, it achieves over 53% of its income from North America. The European position of this company is also positive where it obtains 29% of its income. These two markets are highly important as they generate advantageous margins. It should be noted that the third largest market for this group is Pacific Asia which generates 11% of the company’s income.

We should also draw your attention to the advantages offered by the superior management and administration of this company, admired by a number of professionals and investors, which offers a strategic vision that has already proved its merits.

And, to conclude, the shareholders and stock market investors also highly appreciate the stable and healthy financial situation of this company despite its rise in debt.  The company’s dividend has also increased over the last few years which is a positive factor. We also note that the operating margin is demonstrating a rise pointing to a recovery to the levels observed a decade ago.

The factors in favour of a drop in the Publicis share price:

As you may have noticed from reading the earlier points, the Publicis Group benefits from numerous advantages relating to its future growth. It can therefore be tempting to launch directly into trading and take a long term rising position on this asset using CFDs through your online broker. But before doing so we recommend you take the time to consider the disadvantages of the Publicis Company and its share price and evaluate the following points that could negatively influence this rise.

Firstly we note that the advertising sector has experienced a significant recession over recent years, notably in the mature countries. However, in the emerging countries we note a high volatility which carries a certain risk factor. For example we note a clear slowdown in the Publicis Group’s activities in the United Kingdom and United States which clearly denotes this situation.

The Publicis Group has also registered recurrent budget losses that weigh systematically on the future years activities and these should be taken into account.
