India's Hindustan Unilever falls on slew of downgrades

MUMBAI, Jan 23 (Reuters) - Shares in Hindustan Unilever
extend their fall in pre-opening trade on Wednesday after a
number of investment banks, including Credit Suisse and Nomura,
cut their ratings on slower-than-expected volume growth and a
hike in royalty payments.
    On Tuesday, Hindustan Unilever Ltd (HUL), India's
largest consumer goods maker, reported a 16 percent jump in
third-quarter net profit, and reported low volume growth and a
rise in royalty payments. 
    At 0347 GMT, the shares were down 5 percent at 458.25
