    WPP hit by problems at rival Publicis and client Unilever

    Shares in WPP (WPP.L) fell more than three percent on Thursday on a triple whammy of bad news for the world's biggest advertising group, less than two months after it issued a major profit warning. WPP, run by high-profile executive Martin Sorrell, sent shockwaves through the industry in August when it cut its sales target after consumer goods giants curbed spending, prompting its shares to fall 11 percent and record their worst day of trading in 19 years. The British company's stock fell 3 percent on Thursday after smaller rival Publicis (PUBP.PA) posted third-quarter sales below forecasts and said the market remained challenging, sending its shares down 7 percent.

    France's Havas (LSE: 0MGT.L - news) said on Friday it could not confirm its forecast of organic growth of 2-3 percent for 2017, as declining investment from advertisers, increasing margin pressure and a downturn in high-growth markets weighed on first-half revenue. "Havas' financial performance in the first half of 2017 suffered a slowdown which affected the industry as a whole and led to revenue and profitability below our expectations," Chief (Taiwan OTC: 3345.TWO - news) Executive Yannick Bollore said in a statement. Havas has not only seen spending decrease in the consumer goods sector, but also in the telecoms and automotive sectors, Yannick Bollore said during a call.

    Dixons Carphone shares plunge 30 pct after handset sales falter

    Shares in Britain's Dixons Carphone dived as much as 30 percent after the retailer cut its full-year profit forecast on Thursday, blaming tougher conditions in the mobile market as customers keep their handsets longer. Dixons Carphone (Frankfurt: CWB.F - news) , which trades as Currys, PC World and Carphone Warehouse in Britain and Ireland (Other OTC: IRLD - news) , said the weakness of the pound was also making new devices more expensive at a time when technical innovation has been limited. A market leader in both the electricals and mobile phone market, Dixons Carphone said headline pretax profit for the year was expected to be in a broad range of 360 million pounds to 440 million pounds ($460-562 million).
