Declining earnings and revenues and a few more shares outstanding over the last few years make this a long-term loser. Even though it's a Magic Formula pick, a good ROC and low P/E vs other high ROC stocks aren't going to combine for a great future.

Here is my summary take on UIS.

Despite 10-15 years of "transformation" from a technology firm to a services firm, UIS is not a growing enterprise. A revolving door series of senior managers, following to a failing group of old-line managers, has succeeded in managing financial re-engineering but failed miserably in creating a growth engine. One can debate the skills/merits of many of these leaders. However, their efforts have to be set against a backdrop of an industry in transition, consolidation and firms of much greater scale: not to mention imploding margins. That game is not over.

ClearPath, the long-time engine of profits is slowly eroding. Management's best case is to maintain the revenue level. Margins will continue to fall as eventually more attractive platforms will become a necessity. Do not forget that, despite many great improvements in its "openness", legacy skills are required to maintain CP. Cloud computing both helps CP and harms it since users really do not care what the platform is. CC allows CP to sustain itself as the hub of a cloud, but the overwhelming alternative offerings will take their toll.

The current solution portfolio is balkanized with no significant drivers to leverage for growth. Outsourcing is increasingly becoming a commodity.

If there is a future quantum leap for UIS, it will be based upon the ability of "someone" to combine the positive cash flow with a roll of the dice to do something different. Maybe something really different. The current solution portfolio is balkanized with no significant drivers to leverage for growth.Visionary leaders are rare in business. It means letting go of one ring before you grasp the next!

Deals working with Apple, Google, NASA, and others make Unisys one to watch.

Unisys remains a profitable business despite fear of slowing growth. However, the recent deal with Apple to explore corporate and government sales gives me hope that growth can improve over 1-3 years time.

Unisys has been re-invented.... new management, new focused IT portfolio and has significantly cut overhead cost. Unisys has what the IT Market wants.

Hoping the new government contact gives this company a boost, although the recent military contact didn't seem to help.

Unisys has maintained a 'bean-counter' approach to profitability for the past twenty years. They theorize that the path to profitablity is to cut costs. While this can be true, growing revenue must also be part of the equation at some point. Sadly, management has always turned a blind eye to actually selling their product. Management has never really been able to decide what their product is. With a well-tuned marketing strategy, they could have milked the mainframe niche market cash-cow and grown a good herd of clients. Now all they have is a few captive clients that are nervously eyeing some sort of exit strategy that wouldn't cost more than having to purchase the next Unisys hardware or software upgrade.

I current work for them as a lower end tech. To be honest I don't see all of the problems everyone keeps talking about. I can say one thing that whoever MMI is dead wrong. They care just for the short term value of the stock rather than the long. All that "pressure" did was drop the share. If Unisys sells the government business we might as well fold up shop in the next few years.

Not to worried though. To be honest it’s stupid to think its possible. Most service company’s use techs that do multiple jobs. Government, Business and even end users. Unless you can find a way to cut your core skilled people in thirds, it’s not even practical to split up the business.

Unisys does have problems or that management is kind of iffy. However, we have great sales people and good structure.

Unisys has a huge amount of long-standing and on-going business in the bag with the private sector, governments and institutions world-wide. Their earnings will be a fraction of the S&P but that should be enough to push share prices above $6.00. That would be a 20+ percent increase from today. Think maybe its safe for me to think S&P 500 will not do >10% for the year? UIS can do
this asleep at the wheel.
