Share price recovery exposes the weak

A year ago the stock market was at its lowest point for many years.   Not surprisingly, shares in marketing services companies had fallen even more sharply than most others, as investors worried about the sector’s particular vulnerabilities.  Recessions are always expected to hit marketing agencies more severely than most other type of business and the relatively small size of most marketing companies is perceived as an additional investment risk.
