Reliance's proposed business reorganisation credit neutral: Fitch Ratings
Fitch Ratings sees the proposed reorganisation plan by India's Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL, BBB-/Stable) to transfer its refining, marketing and petrochemical (oil-to-chemicals) businesses to a wholly owned subsidiary, Reliance O2C Limited (O2C), as a step towards facilitating participation by strategic investors in its O2C businesses. We anticipate the reorganisation will have a neutral impact on RIL's credit metrics and rating.
Rohit Singre, Senior Technical Analyst at LKP Securities:
Index managed to hold above 14,700 zone and closed a day with small gains forming a Doji candle pattern on the daily chart after consecutive five bearish candle. The index has good support near 14,630 zone and immediate resistance is coming near 14,800 zone, so index may show some sort of consolidation in the same range and final direction will be clear once we see either side breakout from the mentioned range.
