TheStreet Ratings rates Infosys as a hold. 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 and reasonable valuation levels. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that the company's return on equity has been disappointing.

On the positive front, Nokia Oyj ( NOK), up 31.3%, Hanwha SolarOne ( HSOL), up 15.9%, ReneSola ( SOL), up 14.9% and SouFun Holdings ( SFUN), up 12.8% , were all gainers within the technology sector with Google ( GOOG) being today's featured technology sector leader.
