Top Stocks in Focus Today

Among the buzzing stocks today will be insurance stocks.

The government is ready with a proposal to amend insurance laws to privatise one of the three unlisted general insurance companies.

The draft bill, which has been sent for approval by the Union Cabinet before introducing it in Parliament, seeks to remove the 51% floor on government holding.

Foreign investors will be able to hold up to 74% in the divested general insurance firm subject to Indian management and control, as per government sources.

The article also stated that the centre has ruled out plan to sell New India Assurance (NIACL) or GIC.

While NITI Aayog has suggested the name of at least one general insurer to be privatised, a decision on which one of the three - United India, National or Oriental Insurance will be privatised is yet to be taken.

The name has been shared with the department of investment and public asset management (DIPAM) and will be recommended by a panel of secretaries with ministerial panel taking a call on it before it is endorsed by the Union Cabinet.

In the budget, finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman had announced the privatisation of one general insurance company and two public sector banks (PSBs), for which the process is yet to commence.

Reportedly, NITI Aayog has identified Central Bank of India and Bank of Maharashtra for privatisation.

The process for listing of Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) has already begun, which will happen later in this financial year.

Yes Bank share price will also be in focus today.

Yes Bank reported a four-fold jump in its net profit to Rs 2.1 bn for the quarter ended June 2021.

This is the highest quarterly profit since December 2018.

The net profit was aided by a 41% year-on-year (YoY) fall in provisions during the reported quarter.

Yes Bank's net interest income (NII) in the quarter slumped 26.5% YoY to Rs 14 bn.

The bank's gross non-performing loans ratio rose to 15.6% in the June quarter from 15.4% in the previous quarter.

However, net NPA ratio declined sequentially to 5.78%.

While the overall advances fell 1% in the June quarter, the lender reported 23% growth in its retail and small businesses loan book.

The current account-savings account (CASA) ratio improved to 27.4% and remained on-track to meet the lender's guidance of more than 30% in fiscal 2022.
