Shares in Infosys Technologies, India’s second-largest outsourcer, rose as much as nearly 2 percent to a record high of 2,882 rupees on Friday on optimism about quarterly earnings next week.

InfosysThe company unveils its quarterly earnings on June 13. Its earnings are often dubbed as a trendsetter for sectoral peers.

Macquarie expects Infosys to raise fiscal year 2011 U.S. dollar revenue growth guidance to 17-19 percent from 16-18 percent.
