Experts also analyse if there is a risk of further earnings downgrades.
According to Sanjiv Bhasin of IIFL there is a lot of pessimism around the third quarter earnings but he expects the banks to be in a sweet spot. He is bullish on PSU banks, especially SBI and Bank of Baroda. From the private sector space, ICICI Bank will outperform, says Bhasin.
