While Public sector banks Punjab National Bank and Union Bank of India announced better-than expected third quarter results, private sector biggie ICICI Bank's numbers were inline with the expectations. This failed to de-stress markets.
However, this failed to de-stress markets which were trading quiet since morning. PNB was trading with 6 percent gains, Union Bank showed 5 percent upside and ICICI Bank failed to recover from morning lows. It was quoting at Rs 1,203.65, down Rs 10.60, or 0.87%. ICICI Bank had run opver 40 percent in one year, and today's numbers, void of positive surprise, failed to impress investors.
Following the footsteps of its public sector counterparts, Bank of Baroda rose 2.6 percent.
Among the individual stocks which were trading above 2 percent were, Oil India and IOC (appreciated over 2 percent), Wockhardt (2.74 percent), NHPC (2.51 percent), BHEL 2.66 percent, Asian Paints (2 percent) and Jet Airways (2.4 percent).
Largecaps begun the day on a sticky note, with ICICI Bank gojng down quarter of a percent ahead of its results. The Sensex started down 22 points down at 19982.99, and the Nifty dropped 4.50 points in the first trade at 6051.25.
