    The IT index was trading with gains of near one per cent following the Cognizant results. "Our strong performance has allowed us to raise our full year revenue and EPS guidance for the second time this year, despite the impact to our full year revenues from the announcement that Health Net would be acquired by Centene Corporation," said Karen McLoughlin, Chief Financial Officer.

    Foreign brokerages also upgraded Indian IT stocks like Infosys and TCS to a buy. The performance of technology majors in India has been mixed for the quarter ending June 30, 2015.

    While Infosys outperformed peers, TCS and HCL Tech disappointed the streets. In fact, HCL Tech has fallen sharply since its results, while Tech Mahindra also had nothing significant to boast in terms of performance.
