WPP Earnings: 2023 Is Off to a Good Start and Is Likely to Further Strengthen in the Second Half

Ali Mogharabi Senior Equity Analyst

Analyst Note

| Ali Mogharabi |

WPP’s first-quarter net revenue update supports our assumption of 4% full-year net revenue organic growth as the firm experienced growth across all its segments and in all regions in which it operates. We think that with improvements in China and India during the second half of this year, and less economic uncertainty in Europe and the U.S., organic growth likely will be at the high end of WPP’s 3%-5% 2023 guidance, which was unchanged.

Style is an investment factor that has a meaningful impact on investment risk and returns. Style is calculated by combining value and growth scores, which are first individually calculated.

High-growth stocks tend to represent the technology, healthcare, and communications sectors. They rarely distribute dividends to shareholders, opting for reinvestment in their businesses. More value-oriented stocks tend to represent financial services, utilities, and energy stocks. These are established companies that reliably pay dividends.
