Explaining The Big Rally In Xerox Stock This Year
Xerox (NYSE: XRX), a provider of printing solutions, has seen its stock price rally by close to 50% this year. While the company’s revenues have been declining, it has been reorganizing itself to cut costs and improve its supply chain. This has helped profitability, which is trending steadily higher, with the company beating expectations over Q1 and Q2 2019. Over the first half of the year, EPS stood at $1.36 versus $0.50 a year ago. Separately, the company forged an agreement with HP, which would see Xerox source some entry-level printers from HP (A3 and A4 sizes), while Xerox would provide HP with toners and some other printing technologies (which could be more lucrative compared to developing low-margin hardware). The two companies will also partner in the growing Device-as-a-Service market. Below, we take a look at how the company has fared over the last few years and the outlook over the next two years.
