MUMBAI, Jan 14 (Reuters) - Infosys rose as much as 3 percent to a nine-month high on Monday after brokerages including Barclays upgraded their ratings on the stock after the Indian software services exporter posted better-than-expected earnings and revenue guidance.

J.P.Morgan and Barclays Capital upgraded their ratings on Infosys Ltd to "overweight" from their respective equivalent of "neutral" ratings.

CLSA also upgraded Infosys to "outperform" from "under-perform"
