New York City, New York -- (May 07, 2013)

Advertising agencies have faced significant challenges in the last few years as businesses have slashed their advertising and marketing budgets amid a slowdown in the global economy. While the economic outlook has improved since the start of this year, businesses are not likely to boost their advertising budgets anytime soon. For advertising agencies, the key will be to focus on fast growing areas such as mobile marketing. Shares of advertising agencies ended on a mixed note on Monday, tracking the broad market. Among the major movers were Interpublic Group of Companies Inc. (NYSE: IPG), Monster Worldwide Inc. (NYSE: MWW), Omnicom Group Inc. (NYSE: OMC), Focus Media Holding Limited (NASDAQ: FMCN), and Lamar Advertising Co. (NASDAQ: LAMR). StockCall analysts initiated preliminary technical research on IPG, MWW, OMC, FMCN, and LAMR.
