Why Has DXC Technology Tanked 50% This Year?

DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC) is an end-to-end IT services company that was formed via the merger of the Computer Sciences Corporation and a spin-off of Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Enterprise Service business. DXC stock has declined this year, falling by roughly 50% year-to-date. Overall, the merger has been a mixed bag, with revenues posting steady declines and the company unable to cut costs at the same pace, leading to weaker investor interest. Much of the decline in the stock price came in August after the company slashed its full-year earnings and revenue guidance citing currency headwinds, some pressure on its legacy businesses, and delays relating to some deals. Below, we take a look at how the company has performed over the last few years and its outlook over the next two fiscal years.
