Just to advise that the growth, though good, against a low base last year due to demon.
Last year due to demonoitization most of the companies got hit so there will be low base effect for most of the companies.
If you observe even in the demon quarter the net profit had fallen only by 2.5% wrt Dec 2015!
Dec 2015 BL: 793.23
Dec 2016 BL: 772.05
Which makes the Q3FY18 results look pretty good!
Yes Bank has posted good quarter from last few years.
Only thing people were interested is their NPA numbers and YES bank has posted reduction in GNPA and net NPA this will be positive for the market…
Sir, I recall the demon qtr also had a growth in profits YOY. Just to check I went on the BSE site to the result posted on 19 Jan 2017:
BTW, there is no mention of divergence in today’s filing. Does that mean Yes Bank and RBI’s assessments have converged?
GNPA and Net NPA declared by Yes bank has never been a problem. The problem is the divergence from the RBI posted NPA numbers for the bank. Going by the low NPA numbers disclosed by the bank, we have to take it with a pinch of salt till the RBI numbers are disclosed.
As per result slides, loans from the ones classified as standard in previous quarter have been recovered and there has been no delay or issue with recovery. Does this indicate that the RBI classification of NPA was incorrect and bank was more accurate in marking them as standard and not NPA?
Tho whole divergence saga was a false alarm if that is the case!
At this stage of the economic cycle, growth in advances is more important than asset quality.
Asset quality is important when GDP growth is slowing down as that’s when NPAs begin to rise and its not clear how bad its going to get. Now that GDP growth is picking up, worst of the NPA is behind us. Even PSU banks are reporting decent numbers. Asset quality will improve from here. There may be some book entries regarding recognition and divergences but situation on the ground will improve.
So the key moniterable is how the bank is participating in the up-cycle. At 46% jump in advances, Yes is ahead of the curve and with recent 5000 Cr QIP, it has enough ammunition to stay ahead.

Each of these three have some factors better than the other two e.g. advances of Yes are the best but NIMs are the lowest.Which ones out of 6 should get more weightage to draw a conclusion and the reasons thereof? Your GNPA (rise in absolute nos) is not clear.could you give figures for Yes indicating 295% rise in GNPA.
Thanks in advance
I think the interest rates are already going up in the system
Is it a matter of time when RBI raises the rates again?
If the rates raise NBFC’s and banks will under perform i am not wrong?
Just saw historical rate hike by rbi in 2011 to 12 where it raised multiple times to contain inflation
I think that time banks did under perform
Any insights on this theory?

In this period, Nifty - 80%
HDFC Bank - 79%
Indusind - 17%
Kotak - 223%
Yes Bank - 98%
Though 2008 is a different story.
I do not remember what exactly happened at that time. But a look at my transaction log reveals, I bought more, and in 2 years time it doubled from that price.
My thought process is, I only have a vote, but no say in how a company runs. So rather than trying to think what they should have done, I listen to what they did. That reveals their attitude and gives me enough clues if I should stick with that company or not.
All financials are getting beaten up? is this a reason rising yields or some large FLL’s are booking out due to LTCG benefits?
Yes, large FII sell outs - mainly due to global macros (and in line with global weakening of markets) and not necessarily due to LTCG
Really? DOW and other markets had been up yesterday while our NIFTY has fallen today!
In fact SGX NIFTY was up in the morning before market open following the lead of US markets but nevertheless we ended in red!
Not talking about one day market. Its the general market trend over the past 4 weeks across the globe (non-US markets)
CNX500 v/s S&P500
If you see we have massively under performed US in 2018.
