An analyst from the firm noted: "NLSN has been essentially flat vs. the S&P 500 since its late January 2011 IPO, with shares +6%/-1% vs. the market since January 2011/YTD. Shares have lagged recently on concerns about growth for its Insights business(primarily discretionary analyses looking at advertising vs. buying trends) in light of weakness in Europe and regulatory hurdles for its proposed acquisition of Arbitron – a deal to integrate measurement of radio alongside its core TV and internet offerings that we believe makes strategic sense, as it increases NLSN's ability to compare advertising effectiveness across more mediums." Nielsen Hldg shares were down 28 cents, or 0.75%, during Friday morning trading. The stock is up 22% YTD.Expand to read the full story
