What are analysts saying about Computer Sciences Corporation stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Computer Sciences Corporation stock:
According to Zacks Investment Research, "One of the leading IT services providers, Computer Sciences, recently reported better-than-expected third-quarter of fiscal 2017 results. We believe that the merger with Hewlett Packard’s Enterprise Services business will further strengthen the company’s position in the IT services industry. Apart from this, Computer Sciences has been making strategic acquisitions to strengthen its portfolio, which should drive growth over the long run. Additionally, the company’s traction in the cloud and partnerships with HCL, AT&T, VMware and Microsoft are expected to drive growth, going forward. Nonetheless, the market is becoming competitive with companies like CACI International Inc. and Accenture making their presence felt, which could hurt Computer Sciences’ top line and bottom line. Additionally, a challenging macroeconomic situation and uncertain IT spending environment remain other headwinds." (2/6/2017)
Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "The biggest + surprise in the F1Q17 print was reiteration of F17 revs/EPS guidance, which Street had largely expected to be cut due to Brexit/FX. As per CSC, Brexit is not impacting demand environment and FX headwinds to EPS are expected to be countered by cost-efficiencies. F1Q itself was robust on revs/margins/EPS but soft on FCF/bookings (both expected to improve going forward). We remain bullish on HPE/ES merger accretion potential." (8/9/2016)
