“. We maintain our Neutral rating on INFY and our $10 PT*. Infosys reported quarterly top line (+10.1% y/y cc vs. 12.1% y/y cc for TCS) results above expectations but bottom line results slightly below due to tax. Top line guidance was raised while operating margin guidance was maintained. Headcount grew, attrition was down, and utilization decreased. Financial services grew 7%, below company average, an acceleration from 4% in the prior quarter. We look to the call to provide an update on the demand environment, financial services vertical, margin performance and sustainability, and guidance outlook. Stock is down 1% pre-market.”,” Cantor Fitzgerald’s analyst wrote.
