Understanding the GF Score

The GF Score is a stock performance ranking system developed by GuruFocus using five aspects of valuation, which has been found to be closely correlated to the long-term performances of stocks by backtesting from 2006 to 2021. The stocks with a higher GF Score generally generate higher returns than those with a lower GF Score. Therefore, when picking stocks, investors should invest in companies with high GF Scores. The GF Score ranges from 0 to 100, with 100 as the highest rank.

Based on the above method, GuruFocus assigned DXC Technology Co the GF Score of 65 out of 100, which signals poor future outperformance potential.

Financial Strength Analysis

DXC Technology Co's financial strength indicators present some concerning insights about the company's balance sheet health. The company's interest coverage ratio of 1.34 positions it worse than 93.74% of 1582 companies in the Software industry. This ratio highlights potential challenges the company might face when handling its interest expenses on outstanding debt. Furthermore, the company's Altman Z-Score is just 0.64, suggesting potential financial distress over the next few years. The company's low cash-to-debt ratio at 0.29 and high debt-to-Ebitda ratio of 6.82 further underscore its struggle in handling existing debt levels.

Profitability Concerns

DXC Technology Co's low Profitability rank can also raise warning signals. The company's Operating Margin has declined over the past five years, and its Gross Margin has also seen a downward trend, underscoring the company's struggles to convert its revenue into profits.

Growth Prospects

A lack of significant growth is another area where DXC Technology Co seems to falter, as evidenced by the company's low Growth rank. The company's revenue has declined by -5.9 per year over the past three years, which underperforms worse than 79.36% of 2413 companies in the Software industry. Stagnating revenues may pose concerns in a fast-evolving market. Lastly, DXC Technology Co predictability rank is just one star out of five, adding to investor uncertainty regarding revenue and earnings consistency.
