Wait for Q4 earnings before taking fresh position in ICICI Bank: Akash Jain

"We would also wait for its Q4FY18 earnings season and then take a call whether to take any fresh position in the counter. The key monitorables would be its asset quality, any incremental slippages and its focus on recovery," says Akash Jain, Vice-president, Equity Research at Ajcon Global Services.

ICICI Bank has gained 11 percent in past six trading sessions. We have also witnessed a block deal in this counter which is a good sign. According to the block deal data available with BSE, a leading group has acquired 29.41 million shares, representing 0.46 percent stake in the bank. The shares were picked up at an average price of Rs 280, valuing the transaction at Rs 8,234 million, the data showed.

We believe with regards to the recent newsflow regarding this bank, we advise investors to be wary and wait for some time to get clarity on the entire picture. There can be no smoke without fire and hence it is prudent to be watchful.
