Director dealings: WPP CFO makes share purchase

(Sharecast News) - WPP said on Friday that chief financial officer John Rogers had acquired 43,068 ordinary shares in the FTSE 100-listed advertising firm. Rogers, who was named as CFO back in October 2019, purchased the shares on Thursday at an average price of 925.0p each, for a total value of £398,379.

Earlier in March, analysts at Berenberg raised their target price on WPP from 885.0p to 925.0p, stating there were "few surprises" in its actual full-year results.

While the German bank said WPP's valuation was "not challenging", it also believes that it fairly reflects the low visibility on a return to positive, sustainable, top-line momentum.

As of 1645 GMT, WPP shares were up 0.45% at 928.40p.
