The company operates through Global Business Services, Global Infrastructure Services, and North American Public Sector segments.

TheStreet Ratings rates Computer as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, good cash flow from operations and increase in stock price during the past year. We feel its strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had sub par growth in net income. Get the full Computer Ratings Report now.
