Are PSU Banks on the cusp of change?

PSU Banks are up by 20% in the last thirty days. They have outperformed Nifty Bank by a huge margin. Are they going to sustain this outperformance?

One of the trends that is quite visible in the last few days of trading is that banking stocks are outperforming the overall market. Even within banks, state-owned banks are showing better resilience. Banks like Indian Bank and Union Bank are up by 40% in the last thirty days. In the same period, the best performing bank from the private sector has been Federal Bank, whose share price is up by 20%. This better performance in the last one month has helped the PSB stocks to lift last one-year performance also. They are up by 114% in the last year compared to 63.5% by Bank Nifty.

What is driving the banking sector as a whole is their underperformance for a while and good quarterly results. For example, the Bank of Maharashtra saw its profit double in the latest quarter on yearly basis. Besides its asset quality has also improved significantly. There are many cases that are not being resolved such as DHFL, which is helping such bank. Hence, PSBs are likely to continue their superior performance.
