TheStreet Ratings team rates OMNICOM GROUP as a Buy with a ratings score of A+. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate OMNICOM GROUP (OMC) a BUY. This is based on the convergence of positive investment measures, which should help this stock outperform the majority of stocks that we rate. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its increase in stock price during the past year, growth in earnings per share, revenue growth, reasonable valuation levels and notable return on equity. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company shows low profit margins."
