LONDON,  February 22, 2013  /PRNewswire/ --

Delivery services sector is thriving with the improvement in the economy.
Companies require information for making their decisions and information
services companies provide such information in a useful manner. Thomson Reuters
Corporation (NYSE: TRI) had minor embarrassment with Office Depot and OfficeMax
deal. However, the company's stock is on solid footing as the stock is up 10
percent in the past 52 weeks. Another major player in the field, Nielsen
Holdings N.V. (NYSE: NLSN) recently made a secondary offering of its shares. The
company is also growing its presence in overseas markets. StockCall analysts
initiated preliminary technical research on Nielsen Holdings and Thomson
Reuters. These free reports are accessible by signing today at

Nielsen Holdings N.V. Boost Contract with TCS

Nielsen Holdings announced its fourth quarter result and beat consensus
estimates for EPS, but it lagged behind revenue projections. The company's EPS
for the quarter stood at  62 cents  per share, up from  51 cents  per share it
had earned for the corresponding quarter of the last year. Its revenue also
increased 3.03 percent to  $1.46 billion. Nielsen Holdings was expected to
report its revenue at  $1.48 billion. In-line with its good results, the stock
gained 12.69 percent in the past one year. Its growth so far this year is at
4.18 percent. The free technical analysis on Nielsen Holdings N.V. is available

Nielsen Holdings is boosting its presence in emerging countries as it announced
increasing the scope of its contract with TCS in  India. The deal was earlier
valued at  $1 billion  and now has been raised to  $2.5 billion. The term of the
contract has also been extended by three years.

Nielsen Holdings N.V. announced the secondary offering of its shares. The
company will be issuing a minimum of 35 million shares under the offer and
expects to generate  $1.2 billion  in cash from it. However, the funds will not
accrue to the company but will instead go to its existing shareholders. The
issue priced at  $32.55  failed to generate much buzz. However, the company
still has strong fundamentals, a good track record and its stock is expected to
keep performing well.

Thomson Reuters Announces Layoffs

Thomson Reuters had an unexpected problem to deal with as it inadvertently
leaked out the details about Office Max and Office Depot deal. The glitch,
though embarrassing, is not likely to have material impact on the company's
reputation. Thomson Reuters Corporation, however, is not going to be very
popular with its employees either as it plans to slash 2,500 jobs. The step is
being taken to curtail costs and boost profitability. The layoffs would cost 
$100 million  in severance costs but will be accretive in the long-term.

Thomson Reuters reported its fourth quarter EPS at  60 cents  per share, up
11.11 percent from  54 cents  per share EPS it had reported for the
corresponding quarter of the last year. It also beat consensus estimate of  55
cents  per share. Thomson Reuters, however, missed the projection for revenue
and reported 6.12 percent decline to  $3.36 billion. However, the stock is in
good swing and gained 2.5 percent so far this year. The company also offers good
dividend yield of 4.30 percent and is a good candidate for an income portfolio.
