The brokerage retained “hold” call on JSW Steel. The brokerage raised the target price to 900 from 800 which implies a 3 per cent upside from April 9 closing price.

Jefferies attributed the positive sentiment in metal stocks to the significant rise in manufacturing activities reported by China and the US. As these two countries are major consumers of metal, increase in manufacturing activity means a heightened demand for metal. US manufacturing sector witnessed growth for the first time in 18 months manufacturing PMI surged to 50.3 in March from 47.8 in February. China’s manufacturing activity also expanded in March for the first time since September as the PMI rose to 50.8 in March from 49.1 in February.
