ICICI Securities Report

Our outlook for metal stocks under coverage remains cautious to negative for CY21. We rate all metal stocks at either hold /reduce /sell. The current margins, valuations clearly tell a story of caution.

Deleveraging, as a theme, is important but overhyped given such cyclically high margins, valuations.
