What do you think of Cognizant (CTSH) - Get Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation Class A Report?-- Joel

: I believe Cognizant is a phenomenal company, but the stock is phenomenally expensive as well. Cognizant is growing faster than 99% of companies out there, even in tech, and has been one of the best outsourcing stocks over the past couple of years. However, given the valuation, I don't see any reason to chase it here. On a pullback below $70, I believe, it is a clear buy.
