Bank of Baroda (BoB) will report its fourth quarter results on Wednesday and analysts expect the slippages to remain elevated at Rs 3,600 crore as compared to Rs 3,700 crore in the previous quarter.
- Analysts expect Q4 would be the best quarter in the last five quarters for BoB. Slippages are expected to remain elevated at Rs 3,600 crore.
- Asset quality movement will be seen very closely. Recoveries and higher write-offs amongst public sector undertaking (PSU) banks have been seen and continuation of that in BoB will be positive because in the last quarter the gross NPA (non-performing asset) ratio was at 11 percent.
- The street expects loan growth to remain strong at 8-10 percent with domestic loan growth above 18 percent.
- Analysts expect net interest income (NII) growth of 23 percent while on the lower base a profit of around Rs 900 crore against a loss of Rs 3,100 crore in the same quarter last year is expected.
