Investment Rationale

JSW Steel is likely to witness flat steel spreads sequentially in third quarter of FY20 as the decline in steel prices in October 2019 and reset of half yearly automotive contracts at lower levels would impact the quarter, said Antique. Recovery in domestic steel demand in Q4 would enable further price hikes with current domestic steel prices at a discount to landed import parity Chinese prices, said Antique.
