India. Liquor stocks slide on likely ban in Tamil Nadu

Shares of two liquor makers, United SpiritsBSE -1.56 % and United Breweries , fell on Wednesday as investors became jittery ahead of Tamil Nadu election results. The expectation that DMK will come to power in the State made investors nervous as the party has promised a complete ban on alcohol in its election manifesto.


United Spirits (USL), the world's second-largest spirits company by volume, fell over 3% to end at Rs 2,541.05 on Wednesday. United Breweries dropped almost 2% to close at Rs 733.10.

Even with these setbacks, analysts feel United Spirits is an attractive bet. "We have a positive outlook on United Spirits as it is the leader and the industry is placed favourably on a long term basis," said Duggad.
