  • Two Reasons to Buy Indian IT Companies

    By Varun Chandan - August 14, 2013 | Tickers: INFY, SYNT, WIT

    The Indian rupee dropped to record lows recently, and is expected to remain under pressure.

These companies are also expected to benefit from an ongoing improvement in the U.S. economy, making them an attractive proposition right now.

    By Ash Sharma - July 11, 2013 | Tickers: ACN, CTSH, INFY

    Accenture (NYSE: ACN) recently reported disappointing results thanks to the drop in its consultancy revenue, which offset a healthy increase in its outsourcing business. Its clients are demanding longer horizon consultancy work, so revenue realization is slow in the company's consultancy business.

    By Ash Sharma - July 9, 2013 | Tickers: CTSH, INFY, WIT

    Wipro's (NYSE: WIT) financials have been under pressure in the past quarters, lagging on growth compared to its peers.

    Although the improvement in Information Technology (IT) spending by the banks in North America will help the company increase its revenue in the coming quarter, I remain concerned about the slow addition of new clients in Wipro's portfolio.

  • Investing in Emerging Markets: India

    By Piyush Arora - June 26, 2013 | Tickers: HDB, INFY, SSLT

    Investor confidence in the Indian growth story may have dwindled over the last year, but the World Bank estimates that India's GDP will grow at around 6.7% during 2013. That’s still a healthy growth rate, especially since most emerging nations, including Brazil, are struggling with their slowing economies.
