Updated : 2019-09-18 08:39:01

Indian shares are likely to open in green on Wednesday as falling crude oil prices eased inflationary and trade deficit concerns. Global markets traded mixed amid caution ahead of the US Federal Reserve’s monetary policy decision later today. Among brokerages, CLSA is bullish on GAIL, while Credit Suisse downraged Britannia and Pidilite. Here are the top brokerage calls for Wednesday:

<strong>Credit Suisse on FMCG:</strong> The brokerage said that this is the worst slowdown for the sector in 15 years and there's no quick fix. It downgraded Britannia to 'neutral' and Pidilite to 'underperform' and also cut the target prices for both these companies. It prefers Nestle, Dabur, and Colgate in the sector.

<strong>CLSA on GAIL:</strong> The brokerage has a 'buy' call on the stock with a target at Rs 165 per share.
