IT Services Firm Infosys Aims to Please Trump
BUZ INVESTORS Tech Stock President Donald Trump is all about bringing back jobs to America. In the technology space, which employs a high degree of outsourcing, there are concerns because Trump will radically change the widely used H1B Visa program. A large-cap outsourcing company in the midst of this battle is Infosys Ltd ADR (NYSE:(INFY), which is struggling to find ground on the widespread changes that could happen.
Infosys is a major provider of consulting and technology services to companies in North America, Europe, India, and other regions. The company is also a major outsourcer of technology jobs to the U.S., which accounts for over 50% of its revenues.
The olive branch put forth by Infosys may or may not be enough to make Trump look the other way, but it’s a good start given how much the President likes the optics of creating jobs.
The monthly chart of INFY stock shows the indecisive trading. Infosys staged a strong rally from $5.00 in 2009 when the current bull market took form, and it traded as high as $18.00 at the start of 2011.
Infosys then drifted lower to the $9.00 level in mid-2012 prior to a second up wave to $19.00, breaking above its previous high.
Unfortunately, INFY stock failed to hold again and drifted back to the $14.00 level prior to a small rally to the current $15.28.
The weekly chart shows a slight upside trade gap with INFY stock holding the 50-day moving average with a clear eye towards another attempt at testing $19.00. A breakout could establish a new range at above $20.00, but much will depend on what Trump does.
INFY Stock Looking to Retest Record High
Flipping over to the fundamentals, they support a higher price for Infosys stock.
