GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Guru Investment Theses on Cognizant Technology Solutions Corp

Jerome Dodson Comments on Cognizant - Apr 26, 2017

The second stock we added was Cognizant (NASDAQ:CTSH), the information technology (IT) consultant. The company’s revenue grew at an amazing 30% annualized rate between 2005 and 2015, as technology transformed business models in its focus areas of financial services and healthcare. Over the past year, growth has slowed to an 8%-10% range as some IT projects have shifted to data centers and the cloud, while banks and health insurers have reduced spending due to regulatory uncertainty. Even if Cognizant grows at a high single-digit clip, we believe our upside is significant due to management’s newfound focus on increasing margins and returning cash to shareholders.

Zeke Ashton Comments on Cognizant Solutions - Jan 06, 2017

Cognizant Solutions (NASDAQ:CTSH) is a leading provider of outsourced business processing and technology solutions, providing mission-critical services to a base of over 1,200 mostly large global corporate customers primarily in the areas of banking and insurance, healthcare, logistics, and manufacturing. As an indication of just how successful Cognizant has been, a quick review of the financials from 2005 to 2015 reveals a business that grew top-line revenue roughly 14-fold from $885 million to $12.4 billion. Even more impressively, cash flow profitability improved from $68 million to $1.8 billion (roughly 26-fold) during the same span as the company achieved scale and operating leverage. We initially began buying Cognizant stock following the “Brexit” vote. We added to the Fund’s position when the stock sold off further in late September after the company disclosed an internal investigation related to improper payments made by company personnel in India that could be in violation of U.S. anti-bribery laws. We made this incremental investment in the belief that this unfortunate situation is likely to be an issue that will ultimately be resolved without significant financial liability or reputational damage to Cognizant. The stock had already recovered some of its losses by the end of October.

David Rolfe Comments on Cognizant - Oct 21, 2016

Cognizant (NASDAQ:CTSH) also detracted from overall performance during the quarter, due to management’s cautious commentary related to the demand environment in two of their core customer verticals. Management’s caution about IT spend in Cognizant’s BFS (Banking and Financial Services) segment trace back to the prolonged low interest rate environment along with increased uncertainty in the macro environment—particularly attributed to the “Brexit” vote, which was relatively fresh news at the time of management’s comments. We do not think this weakness has materialized in the near-term, at least to the extent that management was implying. In addition, but not necessarily new, Cognizant has four clients in the HMO (health-maintenance organization) industry, all attempting to merge with or acquire the other. Though the extended timeline of these M&A deals likely pushes out the timing of expected work for Cognizant at each of these four clients, we think Cognizant’s longer-term positioning as a key partner at all four HMOs will continue to allow them to capture wallet share, regardless of M&A outcomes. Near-term, we expect investors to remain skittish around the shares, if only because the investor base has been skittish for years, with the NTM P/E multiple of Cognizant typically vacillating 20%-30% per year. Despite these recent headwinds to topline growth, we think Cognizant maintains a long- term runway for generating attractive organic growth, as the company benefits from the secular shift of IT spend towards digital solutions. The Company maintains excellent financial strength, with nearly $8 billion in borrowing capacity before reaching the average net debt to operating income leverage of the S&P 500—close to 25% of the current market cap.

David Rolfe Comments on Cognizant - Oct 15, 2015

Cognizant (NASDAQ:CTSH) was volatile, but contributed to performance. Most of the volatility was related to a large client that was taken private and would not need Cognizant’s services going forward. The stock’s negative performance was reversed later in the quarter after they released record second quarter results with year-over-year revenue growth of over 22% and nearly 20% earnings growth. And to further shrug off investor's fear that the Company was losing a large client relationship, management raised full year revenue and earnings guidance.
