The share price of Infosys plummeted yesterday (April 11th) on the back of the news its revenue forecasts fell below the expectations of the market.
Stocks in India's second-largest software firm lost a fifth of their value and fell by more than 18 per cent to 2,385 rupees on the Bombay Stock Exchange.
"The forecast looks quite conservative, which is a concern," said KK Mital, chief executive for portfolio management services at Globe Capital.

A net profit of 23.9 billion rupees (£285 million) was revealed by the firm for the first quarter of the year.
