  • According to Zacks Investment Research, "Cognizant reported lower-than-expected fourth quarter 2016 results. However, Cognizant’s announcement of enhanced focus on expanding digital capabilities and an extensive capital buyback program overshadowed dismal quarterly performance. Cognizant remains well positioned to benefit from strong demand from digitization of businesses. High quality, lower cost technology services and strategic partnership with the likes of Microsoft and SAP SE are big positives for the company. Over the past six months, the company shares have outperformed the Zacks categorized business Software Service/BPO Industry. However, macroeconomic headwinds and sluggish spending levels in its healthcare and financial sectors have emerged as big concerns. Intense competition in the IT service industry, rising wages and customer concentration are the other challenges. " (2/13/2017)

  • BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "We are lowering our revenue and operating margin assumptions for CTSH due to FX, industry growth, and pricing assumptions but raising our EPS estimates due to assumed more aggressive share buyback. We have lowered our target price from $58 to $57, due to concerns around visa issues. If we elect to move to a more neutral stance on the stock, visa cost issues could be the likely cause for change. We will use the upcoming quarter to evaluate all factors that could influence our stock views." (2/6/2017)
