Analysis:

TheStreet Quant Ratings

rates Omnicom Group as a

buy

. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its solid stock price performance, increase in net income, notable return on equity, good cash flow from operations and growth in earnings per share. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had generally high debt management risk by most measures that we evaluated.

Highlights from the ratings report include:

  • The stock has not only risen over the past year, it has done so at a faster pace than the S&P 500, reflecting the earnings growth and other positive factors similar to those we have cited here. Turning our attention to the future direction of the stock, it goes without saying that even the best stocks can fall in an overall down market. However, in any other environment, this stock still has good upside potential despite the fact that it has already risen in the past year.
  • The net income growth from the same quarter one year ago has exceeded that of the S&P 500 and the Media industry average. The net income increased by 0.6% when compared to the same quarter one year prior, going from $329.50 million to $331.60 million.
  • Current return on equity exceeded its ROE from the same quarter one year prior. This is a clear sign of strength within the company. Compared to other companies in the Media industry and the overall market, OMNICOM GROUP's return on equity significantly exceeds that of both the industry average and the S&P 500.
  • Net operating cash flow has increased to $1,731.50 million or 19.95% when compared to the same quarter last year. In addition, OMNICOM GROUP has also modestly surpassed the industry average cash flow growth rate of 10.91%.
  • OMNICOM GROUP's earnings per share improvement from the most recent quarter was slightly positive. The company has demonstrated a pattern of positive earnings per share growth over the past two years. We feel that this trend should continue. During the past fiscal year, OMNICOM GROUP increased its bottom line by earning $4.41 versus $4.25 in the prior year. This year, the market expects an improvement in earnings ($4.74 versus $4.41).
