Conduent: Raising Price Target to 24 on Steady Turnaround Progress
We are raising our price target (Buy limit) on shares of technology services company Conduent (NYSE: CNDT) to 24 from our previous target of 20. The leadership is removing the Xerox bloat, gradually replacing it with a reinvigorated and focused operation. The company has more work ahead to reach its goals, yet the path seems reasonably achievable. While Conduent still has considerable execution risks along with competitive, technology and other risks that could impede or sidetrack its turnaround, we think its future looks bright.
We continue to rate CNDT shares a BUY and increase our Buy limit to 24.Technology Hardware, Equipment, & Services
