Indian shares are likely to open lower on Wednesday, in line with Asian stocks, on renewed worries over US-China trade war following threats from US President Donald Trump to Beijing. Investors are also awaiting the US Federal Reserve's announcement on interest rates later today. Among brokerages, CLSA is bullish on Axis Bank while Credit Suisse maintained 'outperform' call on Hero Moto. Citi has a 'sell' rating on Dish TV and is 'neutral' on Piramal Enterprises. Here are the top brokerage calls:

<strong>CLSA on Axis Bank:</strong> The brokerage maintained a 'buy' rating on the stock but cut its target to Rs 900 per share from Rs 1,000 earlier. It also added that improvement in asset quality trends is key to a re-rating.
