EPSmg $4.83
MG Growth Estimate 4.33%
MG Value $82.85
Opinion Fairly Valued
MG Grade C-
MG Value based on 3% Growth $70.04
MG Value based on 0% Growth $41.06
Market Implied Growth Rate 3.13%

% of Intrinsic Value 86.02%

Omnicom Group Inc. does not satisfy the requirements of either the Enterprising Investor or the more conservative Defensive Investor. The Defensive Investor is concerned with the low current ratio, high PB ratio. The Enterprising Investor has concerns regarding the level of debt relative to the current assets. As a result, all value investors following the ModernGraham approach should explore other opportunities at this time or proceed cautiously with a speculative attitude.

As for a valuation, the company appears to be Fairly Valued after growing its EPSmg (normalized earnings) from $3.75 in 2014 to an estimated $4.83 for 2018. This level of demonstrated earnings growth supports the market’s implied estimate of 3.13% annual earnings growth over the next 7-10 years. As a result, the ModernGraham valuation model, based on the Benjamin Graham value investing formula, returns an estimate of intrinsic value within a margin of safety relative to the price.

At the time of valuation, further research into Omnicom Group Inc. revealed the company was trading above its Graham Number of $36.78. The company pays a dividend of $2.25 per share, for a yield of 3.2%, putting it among the best dividend paying stocks today. Its PEmg (price over earnings per share – ModernGraham) was 14.76, which was below the industry average of 20.1, which by some methods of valuation makes it one of the most undervalued stocks in its industry. Finally, the company was trading above its Net Current Asset Value (NCAV) of $-35.28.
