Zinc prices too from close to $2300 a tonne in February , now are trading above $2800 a tonne. The rising bae metal prices have triggered the Vedanta share price.

Nuvama analysts on the other hand say that their visit to Vedanta's 65% subsidiary Hindustan Zinc’s SK mine and Dariba smelter reinforced our conviction on its low-cost status (first decile of world cost curve)

All eyes on Demerger

The demerger is on track and anllysts at Motilal Oswal Finacial Services anticipated to be completed by the end of CY24. The company has obtained clearance from nearly all stakeholders, said analysts. Analysts at Nuvama however expect the demerger to be completed by end-FY25, which as per them should unlock value for minority shareholders

Analysts at Axis Securities said that Demerger will result in 6 pure-play businesses with a high degree of homogeneity. Nevertheless Debt split across demerged entities will be a key monitorable to watch out for going ahead.
