Monster Worldwide Looks for Suitors

Monster Worldwide is reeling under losses as the online recruitment company lost $73 million in the fiscal fourth quarter, down from $10.9 million in net income it had earned for the corresponding quarter of the last year. It is not just the profitability suffering, the company also faced 10 percent decline in its revenue. No wonder, Monster Worldwide has decided to put itself on the block. The company is looking at various options including parts of its business. It recently disposed of its ChinaHR division. The company's management announced that the process is taking longer than expected. Free technical analysis on Monster Worldwide Inc. available by signing up at

Slowdown in the general economy and hiring needs had a direct impact on the company's profitability. Monster Worldwide provided conservative guidance for the first quarter as it expects its earnings to be in the range of 6 to 10 cents per share, while analysts expected it to earn 8 cents per share in income. Emergence of new social recruiting concept has also marred the future prospects of the company.

Monster Worldwide is taking steps to curb its downfall. The company is cutting its costs to improve profitability. The company CEO stated: "As a leaner, more focused company, we are concentrating our resources on our core markets and are aggressively taking the steps necessary to strengthen our business."  So far, these actions have not succeeded in bringing discernible results. The stock has only mild upside to it.

Omnicom Beats Analysts' Estimates

Omnicom Group, on the other hand, handily beat the street's estimates by posting $1.13 per share in EPS. The company's revenue also grew 2.4 percent to $3.94 billion. It surpassed analysts' estimates of $1.09 per share in EPS and $3.93 billion in revenue. The company operates globally hence neutralize regional impacts well. Omnicom CFO stated, "Our large European markets like Russia continued to perform largely well while the UK, France and Germany remained weak and in aggregate the Eurozone markets were down 3.7 percent."

Like Monster Worldwide, Omnicom Group also has tepid view of the near future performance. Its CEO cautioned: "While the macroeconomic environment appears to be stabilizing and even improving in some areas, issues in several markets remain unresolved." Omnicom stock offers good value with its 18 percent price growth and 2.14 dividend yield. The stock is expected to perform moderately well as the company carries out corrective measures and improves its profitability.  The advertising company is performing better in the U.S. market, thus countering the weak performance in Europe and Asia.
