IT firms rush to hire amid fears of tighter U.S. visa program, Reuters says

India's IT services sector will speed up acquisitions in the U.S. and recruit heavily from college campuses in the country amid fears of a more protectionist U.S. technology visa program under Donald Trump, according to Reuters. Indian companies such as Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys (INFY) and Wipro (WIT) have long used H1-B skilled worker visas to fly computer engineers to the U.S., the publication said, noting however that President-elect Trump has been a long-time critic of this visa program.

Infosys estimates lowered below consensus amid uneven checks at Susquehanna
Susquehanna analyst James Friedman said the firm's industry-level checks suggest that the improvements that Infosys had hoped for may not have taken shape in the quarter, echoing recent cautious comments made by management at a competitor conference and at the company's analyst day meeting. Amid the uneven checks and cautious commentary, Friedman cut his estimates to below consensus and lowered his price target on Infosys shares to $16 from $18 while keeping a Neutral rating on the stock.
