Analysts at JP Morgan remain overweight on Hindalco and Vedanta even though the stocks have materially outperformed the broader indexes over the last 12 months as the underlying commodity environment remains supportive and should allow balance sheets to de-lever.

“However, in the near term, we would not be surprised to see volatility increase and stocks pull back on LME volatility but would use weakness to add to positions," JP Morgan said in recent report on India Metals.
