  • Deutsche Bank Raises Price Target on Omnicom Group; Reiterates "Hold" Rating (OMC)

    On Friday, analysts at Deutsche Bank boosted the price target on advertising firm Omnicom Group Inc. (OMC) due to its attractive willingness to return cash to shareholders through dividends and share buybacks. The analysts maintain a "Hold" rating on OMC and see shares reaching $59, up from the previous target of $57. This new valuation suggests a 2% downside to Friday's closing price of $60.15. A Deutsche Bank analyst commented, “Omnicom is returning a great deal of capital to shareholders ($1.1b buyback in ‘13E and $400m in dividends, 10%+ return), owns the industry's premier collection of assets, and is trading at a reasonable multiple (15x ‘13E P/E, 8.5x EBITDA, 7.9% FCF yld). We would argue that the shares deserve to trade closer to the historical premium to the S&P of ~10% given the stability of the model and strong capital return, but we think there is not enough upside from the current +7% particularly given select account headwinds, limited prospects for operating leverage this year, and the absence of positive catalysts. Maintain Hold but increase our target price.” Omnicom shares were inactive during pre-market trading on Monday. The stock is up +20.4% year-to-date. The Bottom Line Shares of Omnicom (OMC) have a dividend yield of 2.66% based on Friday's closing price of $60.15 and the company's annualized dividend payout of $1.60 per share. Omnicom Group Inc. (OMC) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.4 out of 5 stars.
