Updated : 2019-08-06 08:32:15

Indian shares are likely to open lower on Tuesday following losses in global markets and weakness in Chinese yuan amid escalating US-China trade tensions. Asian stocks declined after the US designated China a currency manipulator. Among brokerages, Morgan Stanley initiated coverage on L&T Info with an 'overweight' call and BofAML downgraded Bharat Forge to 'neutral'. Here are the top brokerage calls for Tuesday:

<strong>Morgan Stanley on L&T Info:</strong> The brokerage initiates coverage on the stock with 'overweight' rating and target at Rs 1,780 per share. The stock has demonstrated strong growth and stability since IPO and the brokerage expects its core business to outpace most peers.
