Mechel Preferred Stock May Enter MSCI Russia Index, UralSib Says

May 6 (Bloomberg) -- OAO Mechel, Russia’s largest producer of coal for steelmaking, will probably see its preferred shares added into the MSCI Russia index at a scheduled rebalancing May 16, boosting the stock, UralSib Financial Corp. said.

Mechel preferred shares “are likely to be added” to the index after the Justice family sold $528 million of the stock in a secondary offering last month, increasing the free float, said Dmitry Smolin, an analyst in Moscow at UralSib, in a note today.

The result could be a “very positive short-term catalyst for the stock,” Smolin said. UralSib recommends investors buy Mechel preferred stock with a price estimate of $15 an American depositary receipt. They closed at $9.08 yesterday in New York.

Each depositary receipt is worth half a preferred stock.
