Alrosa (ALRS 104.79, + 0.43%) is to publish data on sales for March. Investors have already won back expectations of a recovery in the diamond market, but quotes may continue to rise. Several unique lots were supposed to be sold at the auction in March, the volume probably increased significantly compared to February. The company is taking additional measures to stabilize the market. The production plan for the current year is rather conservative: 31 million carats. Against the backdrop of a gradual increase in demand, this will help balance the market.
Ozon.ru (OZON 4 481.5, -1.88%) can be added to MSCI. One of the major banks notes that the issuer formally meets the criteria for inclusion in the prestigious index in May. However, there is no guarantee that the index committee will prefer Ozon to other candidates. It often takes a long time before being included in the index, and OZON shares are traded for less than six months. We do not recommend investors to speculatively play this news.
