IIE Digital Desk :India's leading IT majors, including Tata Consultancy Services (TCS), Infosys, and others, have collectively added a staggering $22 billion in market value over just two trading sessions since the commencement of the earnings season.

The upbeat momentum stems from last quarter's unexpected surge in sales, surpassing investor expectations and casting a positive light on the industry's outlook. TCS and Infosys have emerged as frontrunners in this market rally.

Wipro witnessed a remarkable 14% intraday surge on Monday, its most substantial leap since July 2020, buoyed by an unforeseen revenue beat and resulting in rating upgrades from various brokerages. HCL Technologies soared to a new all-time high propelled by optimistic revenue growth predictions.

Global firms continue to pursue initiatives focused on cost-cutting and efficiency improvement, despite no substantial rebound in discretionary spending on technology projects. Indian IT companies are showcasing their prowess in artificial intelligence, with Infosys CEO Salil Parekh noting that nearly every client discussion involves generative AI.

Earnings upgrades at major IT firms echo the overall positive sentiment. Following last week's results, Infosys saw upgrades from at least six brokerages, while JPMorgan Chase and Co upgraded ratings for Wipro's US- and India-listed shares.

Analyst Karan Uppal from Phillipcapital anticipates a turnaround in earnings in the upcoming fiscal year starting in April, dispelling concerns of further downgrades to estimates. The industry's resilience and adaptability amid global uncertainties reflect a promising trajectory for India's IT sector.
