UPDATE: Axis Capital Upgrades Infosys to Buy on Deal Win Ratio, Q3 Results
Axis Capital upgraded Infosys (NASDAQ: INFY) from Hold to Buy.
Axis Capital commented, "Volume growth to accelerate: given higher deal win ratio, 8 large outsourcing deal wins in Q3, increase in client mining (> USD 50 mn clients) and likely increase in contribution from US geography (61% revenue share). Q3 volume growth of ~2% QoQ in a seasonally weak quarter (and Sandy storm) signals better times ahead. While management indicated macro is still challenging and CY13 IT budgets may be flat-to-declining (clarity expected in Feb '13), we believe better pricing and strong deal pipeline led by key initiatives undertaken by the company will help maintain revenue momentum."
Infosys closed at $43.95 on Friday.
