Indian stocks welcome upgradation by UBS

Although India faces many challenges, overseas investors should stay committed to investments in India

 

Global investment bank, UBS, is of the view that liquidity will improve in the stock market in India, and that its attractive valuations will help perform better in relative terms.

UBS has upgraded Indian stocks to ‘overweight’. Compared to growth markets in Southeast Asia, the Indian market has attractive valuations. Improvement in trade balance will, in turn, push up liquidity in the market.

Although India faces many challenges, overseas investors should stay committed to investments in India. The challenges will not only be political, but also in balance of payments.

“We think the risk is worth it—that either improved risk appetite globally helps lower domestic rates, or that in the coming months an improving trade balance does the same," UBS said.

Rashtriya Ispat IPO may go ahead

The RINL IPO has already been deferred once by three weeks after suggestions of the merchant bankers in view of the subdued market conditions

New Delhi: State-run Rashtriya Ispat Nigam Ltd's (RINL) appeal to defer its Rs2,500 crore initial public offering (IPO) in view of a fire at its plant killing 19 may go unheeded, with the Department of Disinvestment (DoD) deciding to go ahead with the plan to launch the issue towards the end of this month, reports PTI.

"Basically, this is not an issue that is connected with the disinvestment. Its a very unfortunate event," Steel Secretary DRS Chaudhary told reporters when asked about the RINL's plea to defer the IPO in view of the fire accident.

The RINL management wrote a letter to the Steel Ministry on 22nd June requesting deferring the IPO as employees' morale has touched a low after the fire that killed 19 people including 12 staffers.

On 13th June, a major explosion took place during the trial of a new oxygen control unit near the steel melting shop at RINL's Vizag facility, resulting in the fire and the subsequent deaths.

The IPO is scheduled to hit the market in the last week of July. The launch has already been deferred once by three weeks after suggestions of the merchant bankers in view of the subdued market conditions.

Chaudhary said the road shows were currently going on, but the decision on launching the issue would be taken by the Department.

"The decision on when and how to market it will be taken by the DoD. We don't finalise the dates which will be decided by the DoD," he said.

"It's very unfortunate that the accident happened. It's bad luck that it happened. In future, we want to make sure that these things don't happen again," Chaudhary added.

When asked if the Steel Ministry conveyed RINL's plea to the DoD, he said, "All of you have conveyed it in the press".

The merchant bankers to the issue - UBS Securities India and Deutsche Equities (India) - had also advised DoD to defer the issue till September-October in the wake of the disaster.

RINL had submitted the draft red herring prospectus with the market regulator SEBI on 18th May. The company has to bring out its IPO before November this year as its Navratna status, accorded on 16 November 2010, is subject to its getting listed in two years (from the date of acquiring the status).
