Though Infosys topped the media share of voice, TCS has performed better on the tonality of news coverage.

TCS received extremely positive media coverage after India’s largest IT firm reported better-than-expected quarterly earnings. Meanwhile, positive earnings coverage has lifted TCS’s news sentiment 100-day moving average (DMA) to the highest level in the past 9-months.

On the other hand, underlying news sentiment for India’s second largest software company was mostly negative due to lukewarm Q4 earnings and disappointing guidance for FY19. As a result, Infosys witnessed a drop in news sentiment 100-DMA after disclosing quarterly results.
