  • Banks to continue with good price performance: Vaibhav Sanghavi 

    Vaibhav Sanghavi, Co-CEO Avendus Capital Alt Strategies, expects banks to do well over the medium to long term. 

    “Till now, while banks on an overall basis have been improving over the last three quarters, we haven’t seen the price performance kind of measuring up to it and the main reason for it was that it was over-owned especially by FPIs. Because of the selling from FPIs, they could not catch up with the performance... However, over the last few days, we have seen some selling ebbing and should they continue with the performance which they have already shown, I think banks would continue with  good price performance," he tells CNBC-TV18.
