Another defensive option play opened in Cognizant Tech

Another defensive option play opened in Cognizant Tech. 17.5K Jan 75 calls sold at $1 and 17.5K Jan 45 - 55 put spreads bought for $3.25 on Tuesday. Wednesday saw notable opening activity in Apr 52.5 puts. Friday morning, one player sold 15K Jan 75 calls at $1.10, bought 15K Jan 55 puts for $4.69, and sold 25K Jan 47.5 puts at $2.20. The activity is similar to the large three-way spread opened Tuesday and likely a 2017 hedge, as the max payout happens if shares, which are flat at $58.10 today, fall 18.2% to $47.5 through 1/19/18.

Equal Weight
Cognizant downgraded to Equal Weight from Overweight at Morgan Stanley
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley downgraded Cognizant to Equal Weight from Overweight and lowered its price target to $59. Analyst Brian Essex said shares have recovered off the lows but said upside from growth catalysts are being pushed out a year, and risks from tax reform and visa exposure will likely persist through 2017. The analyst said a recent CIO survey indicates Banking and Financial Services spending may not be as "robust" as expected and the merger processes with four of its largest Healthcare customers is being pushed out, leading to greater risk to meeting expectations.

Outperform
Cognizant price target lowered to $60 from $68 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Glenn Greene lowered his price target for Cognizant to $60 from $68 ahead of 2017 and Q14 earnings. While the company's fundamental backdrop appears poised to improve in 2017, and the analyst anticipates a more shareholder-friendly capital allocation posture, he is concerned by recent immigration/visa developments. Greene understands that more than half of Cognizant's U.S.-based employees are on visas. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Cognizant removed from Catalyst Watch list at Citi
Citi analyst Ashwin Shirvaikar removed Cognizant from his firm's Catalyst Watch list following the company's agreement with Elliott. The analyst still sees macro and industry uncertainty and keeps a Neutral rating on the shares. He upped his price target for the name to $62 from $61.

Outperform
Cognizant price target raised to $64 from $60 at Oppenheimer
Oppenheimer analyst Glenn Greene raised his price target for Cognizant to $64 from $60 on valuation following quarterly results. The analyst is encouraged by the company's strategic shift and implementation of a more aggressive capital return and margin plan. However, Greene suspects shares could remain range-bound until potential immigration/visa impacts become clearer. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.
