Indian benchmark indices are likely to start flat on Monday, tracking sluggish Asian stocks, as investors remained cautious ahead of US-China trade talks and the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy decision this week. Among brokerages, Jefferies was bullish on ICICI Bank and raised its target price, while UBS and Credit Suisse remained bearish on Bajaj Auto. Here are the top brokerage calls for Monday:

<strong>Jefferies on ICICI Bank:</strong> The brokerage gave a 'buy' call on the stock with target raised to Rs 480 per share from Rs 455 earlier. It expects improvement in the lender's core operational profit.
