Infineon Technologies (OTCMKTS:IFNNY) was upgraded by Zacks Investment Research from a “sell” rating to a “hold” rating in a research note issued on Friday.

It is gaining significantly from the increasing use of semiconductors in the electric automobiles market. Notably, shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the last one year. However, the company continues to encounter difficulties with the cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry that witnesses price erosion and evolving standards.

Further, intensifying competition in the automotive and power market segments is a major concern.”
