  • Computer Sciences Smashes EPS, Raises Outlook (CSC)

    Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) reported an impressive Q1 2014 just after Tuesday's trading session came to a close. The Virginia-based firm was expected to show EPS of $0.67 and revenues of $3.57 billion; instead, Computer Sciences blew EPS estimates out of the water by reporting diluted EPS from continuing operations of $0.91. Revenues came in lower than expected at $3.26 billion. President and CEO Mike Lawrie then raised the current year's EPS range by 20 cents, expecting it to now fall between $3.50 and $3.70. The stock soared more than 5% in after-hours trading, despite revenues falling short of analyst expectations. Computer Sciences shares were down 23 cents, or 0.46%, at Tuesday's close. If the stock can maintain its after-hours momentum, it will open Wednesday at a fresh 52-week high. The Bottom Line Shares of Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) are currently yielding 1.60% based on Tuesday's closing price of $49.96. Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.

  • JP Morgan Lowers Price Target For Computer Sciences (CSC)

    JP Morgan reiterated its "Underweight" rating on Computer Sciences (CSC) on Wednesday and also went onto lower its price target for the company. Tien-tsin Huang, an analyst with the firm, commented, "Uncertainty in the US federal business, workforce rationalization charge clouds the outlook and materialization of any of these risks could result in further downward revision in estimates. CSC lags peers in revenue growth and execution. The drawn out restructuring is difficult to execute and will likely require steady macro environment." As such, JP Morgan lowered its price target on the company from $48.00 to $47.00. Computer Sciences shares were fairly flat on Wednesday, inching higher by 0.23% on the day. The stock is up 18% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of Computer Sciences (CSC) have a 1.69% dividend yield based on Wednesday's closing price of $47.39. Computer Sciences (CSC) is not recommended at this time, holding a Dividend.com DARS™ Rating of 3.3 out of 5 stars.
