Zacks Investment Research upgraded shares of Infineon Technologies (OTCMKTS:IFNNY) from a sell rating to a hold rating in a research note published on Friday morning.

It is gaining significantly from the increasing use of semiconductors in the electric automobiles market. Notably, shares of the company have outperformed the industry in the last one year. However, the company continues to encounter difficulties with the cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry that witnesses price erosion and evolving standards. The company’s requirement of large capital investments to maintain a competitive cost position remains a headwind. Further, intensifying competition in the automotive and power market segments is a major concern.”
