Falling Knives in the Banking Sector
Oct 16, 2019


2019 has been brutal for some banking stocks.

The market has severely punished them. This is due to issues such as worsening asset-quality, corporate governance, and inadequate capital.

Stocks such as Yes Bank and Lakshmi Vilas Bank are down more than 70%.

Surprisingly, RBL Bank is the latest victim added to the worst performers list of 2019. You see, RBL Bank is down 64% from its recent high in May 2019.

What's the issue here?

Well, the management expects to face challenges in recovering some loans in the near term.

They have guided for elevated stress in a few corporate accounts, rising non-performing assets, and higher provisioning. This could impact the earnings of the bank.

Does this situation seem familiar to you?

Falling stock prices could be enticing. After all, we love deep discounts and good bargains.

But if you're thinking of buying these stocks it's important to remember this point - If a stock is in a falling spree, there's probably a good reason behind it.

And realising this in a falling market is the first step towards correcting one's investing process.
