Yes Bank will report its third-quarter earnings on Thursday and the lender is expected to report low single-digit net profit growth.
- All eyes will be on the divergence number for FY18, if at all they report. The FY17 divergence was at Rs 6,355 crore and that formed about 4.8 percent of the book.
- Loan growth is expected to be above 40 percent last quarter. It was at 41.2 percent. Impact of rising interest rate needs to be seen in terms of the cost of funds. Yes Bank is a big player in the capital market so if at all divergence comes then provisions can be on the higher side. Provisions will be elevated and you can see gross non-performing assets (NPA) rising.
- CNBC-TV18’s poll suggests net interest income (NII) growth of 32.3 percent while net profit can grow in single digit less than 3 percent on a year-on-year (YoY) basis.
