They serve several industries, including travel, insurance, financial services, healthcare, professional services, manufacturing, distribution and retail. They also provide essential corporate functions, such as finance and accounting, human resources research and analytics. " (8/3/2017)
- 2. Cantor Fitzgerald analysts commented, "WNS remains a growth story. The pipeline remains healthy, in our view, with promising recent client additions. Industry penetration rates remain low. We expect a high-single-to-low-double-digit industry growth rate over the medium term. WNS’s initial constant currency, organic growth rate guidance at the midpoint calls for 10% growth (vs. +8% for industry) with 90% visibility. Capability-focused acquisitions, including those of HealthHelp and Denali, are expected to add 12% y/y to growth in FY18 (ending March 2018). We believe the integration is off to a good start and that there is a bias to the upside. We note the likelihood of ongoing share repurchases." (6/29/2017)

Consensus Ratings for WNS (Holdings) Limited (NYSE:WNS) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
