Alrosa Rated as 'Buy'

Alrosa, the country's diamond mining monopoly, was rated "buy" by VTB Capital as the bank initiated coverage of the company ahead of a possible share sale next year.

Alrosa, which is traded on the over-the-counter market in Moscow, has about 30 percent upside as the company is set to benefit from "skyrocketing" prices for rough diamonds and potential privatization, VTB said Monday.

The over-the-counter price may reach $43,000 a share within 12 months, the bank said. Alrosa had a market value of about $9 billion as of Aug. 5.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
