14:56 EDTINFYInfosys technical comments ahead of earnings
The shares have outperformed in the past three months, with a decidedly bullish trend. At the current price of $59.45 the stock is not terribly far from its 52-week high at $63.20. This would likely be a level to be tested on better than expected results. If the news is sufficiently positive, it could lead to an additional breakout above the high with resistance at $65.04. If the news disappoints significantly, there is only a moderate percentage of the float short so there would be less buy-to-cover benefit. Over the past three years the $60 area has been tough resistance and disappointing results have lead to significant drops from that level. On an increasing band of negative surprises, support below would be at $57, $55.17, and $51.43 on an extreme move. The 52-week low is at $50.06.
