UBS says China a better bet than India: UBS
Global investment bank, UBS has downgraded Indian equities to "neutral" from "overweight", Reuters has reported.

The investment bank has said China is the better bet and India was unlikely to see big downside surprises on inflation and hence no aggressive rate cuts.

“Our preference here is now China rather than India," Reuters has reported quoting the UBS report.
