Teradata (NYSE:TDCGet Rating) was downgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “hold” rating to a “strong sell” rating in a report released on Wednesday, Zacks.com reports. They currently have a $29.00 price objective on the technology company’s stock. Zacks Investment Research‘s target price indicates a potential downside of 15.18% from the company’s current price.

According to Zacks, “Teradata’s first-quarter results were affected by declining consulting services revenues. Further, the weak performance delivered by the company in the EMEA, Asia Pacific & Japan was a negative. Notably, the stock has underperformed the industry it belongs to on a year-to-date basis. Nevertheless, increasing recurring and perpetual revenues contributed well to the top-line growth. Further, the strong performance delivered by the company in the Americas region was a positive. However, the company’s weak guidance for 2022 remains a negative. Notably, the company ceased its operations in Russia as a result of the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war. This is expected to remain a headwind in each of the remaining quarters of this year. The company also expects unfavorable foreign currency fluctuations in the current quarter, which is a headwind.”
