Infosys logoInfosys (NYSE:INFY) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating in a report issued on Thursday, Zacks.com reports.

According to Zacks, “Infosys is benefiting from large deal wins and fast growing digital services. This was reflected in the fourth-quarter fiscal 2019 results. The top line was driven by strong demand for cloud, IoT, cyber plus data and analytics-related services. The company’s focus on Agile Digital and AI-driven Core services is a tailwind. Higher spending on the digital, analytics, cloud, cybersecurity and other new technology domains is a key driver for Infosys. Shares have outperformed the industry in the past year. However, Infosys is suffering from an unfavorable political climate in the United States and the increasing anti-outsourcing sentiment in certain countries. Notably, higher subcontractor costs, and the company’s compensation revision with a higher variable pay and incentives are weighing on margins. Further, the company’s business is highly prone to the currency volatility between the Indian rupee and the U.S. dollar.”
