Morgan Stanley downgrades India's SAIL to 'underweight'

MUMBAI, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Morgan Stanley cut its rating on Steel Authority of India Ltd to 'underweight' from 'equalweight' and lowered target prices on other Indian steel stocks, citing raw material costs, sluggish volume growth and declining return-on-equity.

Morgan Stanley also cut SAIL's price target to 72 rupees from 95 rupees. It also cut its price targets on Tata Steel , JSW Steel and Jindal Steel & Power .

The investment bank added it did like Tata Steel, calling it "the only company for which we project structural gains in return and profitability ratios."
