Have you ever wished for the safety of bonds, but the return potential...
Computer Sciences (CSC) reported its third quarter results after the closing bell on Monday, posting lower sales and higher adjusted earnings compared to last year’s Q3.
CSC president and CEO Mike Lawrie had the following comments: “We are delivering solid profitability improvement through our cost takeout initiatives. We returned to top line growth in our public sector business and we expanded the operating margin through tight cost management and good contract performance. We continue to see significant growth from our next-generation offerings. However, these contributions are not yet large enough to offset headwinds in our traditional commercial business. Free cash flow was strong at $498 million due to better working capital management.”
Computer Sciences paid its most recent quarterly dividend of 23 cents on January 26. We expect the company to declare its next dividend in the coming month.
CSC stock was down $4.29, or 6.62%, in after hours trading. YTD, the stock is up 2.84%.
