JPMorgan on India Steel More steel price hikes on the way in January. Hikes should support steel stock performance. Expect very strong Q4 as coking coal prices are also weak. With likely price hikes, steel stocks will enter an upgrade cycle. Citi on Persistent Systems Maintained ‘Sell’; hiked price target to Rs 590 from Rs 540. Hike FY20-21 EPS estimate by 1-4 percent to factor in the exchange rate and operational assumption. Raise valuation multiple given rerating in the sector and the broader Indian market.

Emkay on Media Reduction in channel pricing cap will impact broadcasters only if a large proportion of subscribers shift to a-la-carte model and subscribe to fewer channels. Large broadcasters that have driver channels across the genres will have limited impact or risk of revenue loss due to the shift to a-la-carte. The impact could be in the form of lost advertisement and subscriber revenues due to non-subscription of non-driver channels. Believe that India will remain a bouquet subscription market.
