Moody's boost to Modi: Should India really cheer?   The Narendra Modi government is celebrating the upgrade of India’s sovereign credit rating by Moody’s Investors Service. The new rating places India at Baa2, up a notch from Baa3. The outlook has also been raised from positive to stable, while other ratings, including the one for short-term local currency, have seen an upgrade by a notch each. READ FULL VIEW

Centrum Broking on CARE Ratings    We have tweaked our estimates for FY18E/ FY19E marginally and are now building in 14.5%/ 13.9% CAGR in revenues/ EBIDTA over FY17-19E. We continue to like CARE for its business model and the free cash flow yield. Valuations at 22.4x FY19E EPS however limit near-term upside. Retain Hold with TP at Rs 1,560 (valued at 25x FY19E EPS). In our earlier notes, we have argued for higher valuation multiples for CARE (discount gap with peers to narrow) and we expect the trend to continue as more signs of superior growth get visible. We continue to prefer CARE as a proxy play to revival in rating opportunities. Lower-than-expected volume growth/ price reduction are key risks.

Still short of best rating    Global rating agency Moody’s on Friday upgraded India’s sovereign bond rating by a notch to Baa2. This is the best for the country in the recent past, but India's sovereign ratings in late 1980s and 1990 were higher. The economy had a rating of A2 in 1988 which was downgraded by two notches to Baa1 in 1990. However, the rating in 1990 was still a notch higher than now. CLICK HERE FOR GRAPHIC
