Cognizant downgraded to Market Perform from Outperform at William Blair
William Blair analyst Anil Doradla downgraded Cognizant Technology Solutions to Market Perform from Outperform. After visiting India, the analyst is concerned that Cognizant will be affected by structural changes within the services industry. The newest headwind to the industry is related to the potential policy changes under President-elect Trump, Doradla tells investors in a research note. Further, the analyst is disappointed by the company's lack of capital returns to shareholders. He also expects Cognizant's growth will continue decelerating from 2016 through 2018. In pre-market trading, the shares are down 53c to $52.65.

Cognizant small dividend seems achievable, says SunTrust
After Elliott Management disclosed a $1.4B position and released a letter to Cognizant Technology Solutions, SunTrust analyst Frank Atkins says he believes the company's major issue is not on the margin side but declining top line growth rates. A small dividend, as Elliott suggested, seems achievable and may fit with slightly lower top line trajectory going forward, Atkins tells investors in a research note. He continues to believe a Trump administration creates uncertainty and keeps a Hold rating on shares of Cognizant.
