REASON TO AVOID THE STOCK:
Current run up in the stock price has made it over valued. It has outperformed its global peers.
Corus acquisition to remain a drag on the counter.
Higher debt in the book.
Weak global demand likely to continue for next 2 years.
Highly leveraged balance sheet.

KEY RISK:
Any recovery sooner than expected by us can turn the fortune and hence will rerate the stock.
Corus cost reduction by captive iron ore from Indian mines.
Any step by UK which reduces financial risk of Tata Steel.
