"Conduent is a business process services company. It handles transaction intensive processing for government and commercial customers. After years of weak sales, declining profits, conflict with its largest shareholder (Carl Icahn), and the loss of its CEO – the company is turning around. Conduent’s new CEO is addressing the company’s key problems and is driving sales growth. Conduent currently trades at an extremely attractive upside-to-downside ratio."
