    No time to get bearish on banking stocks yet: Jai Bala

    Jai Bala of Cashthechaos.com believes it is not time yet to have a bearish on the banking basket. He suggests playing the trend in the short term. HDFC Bank is languishing a little bit but is fine as long as it avoids the Rs 1,410 level, he says. "But if it does print Rs 1,410, it is trouble for the banking sector. I don't see too much upside from here. But let's see," he adds.

    Banking demonstrated upbeat growth and credit cost outlook in April-June: ICICI Securities

    "Earnings of SBI, HDFC Bank and Kotak Mahindra Bank lagged ICICI Securities expectations due to higher-than-anticipated treasury loss and elevated opex. For these banks, we revised FY23E/24E earnings a tad downwards. Bandhan Bank landed into a series of events in Q1FY23 and revised MFI regulations; Assam floods and declassification of loans under certain PSL categories led to earnings miss," the brokerage says.

    ICICI Securities has Axis Bank and IndusInd Bank as its preferred picks from the space. "Consistent earnings delivery will gradually drive rerating in SBI and HDFC Bank as well," it adds.
