Indian shares are likely to extend gains on Thursday, tracking gains in Asian peers, ahead of the August retail inflation data, due later today.

Among brokerages, HSBC is bullish on HUL, Avenue Supermarts, while Citi is 'neutral' on Motherson Sumi. Here are the top brokerage calls for Thursday:

<strong>HSBC on Consumer:</strong> The slowdown persists but growth does not seem to be falling off a cliff, the brokerage noted. It added that Kirana stores are here to stay and are strengthening. It prefers Avenue Supermarts and HUL in the FMCG space.
