TheStreet Ratings rates Infosys as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, largely solid financial position with reasonable debt levels by most measures, growth in earnings per share, increase in net income and reasonable valuation levels. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company has had lackluster performance in the stock itself.

On the negative front, American Reprographics Company ( ARC), down 8.1%, icad ( ICAD), down 8%, Camelot Information Systems ( CIS), down 7.8%, and Sonic Foundry ( SOFO), down 7.4%, were all losers within the computer software & services industry with Cognizant Technology Solutions Corporation ( CTSH) being today's computer software & services industry loser.

Investors who are bullish on the computer software & services industry could consider iShares S&P NA Tech Software Idx ( IGV) while those bearish on the computer software & services industry could consider ProShares Ultra Short Technology ( REW).
