The global broking firm said that the move was a game changer and expects re-rating in PSU banks. In fact, the package takes care of all requirements in one stroke, it added. The infusion is highly dilutive, but very positive for FY19 adjusted books. Though it is positively surprised by the quantum of recap, it said that the recap still managed to match its estimates of capital needs for both NPA provisioning and growth. Among stocks, it expects the highest positive impact on Punjab National Bank as it is more sensitive to capital availability than State Bank of India or Bank of Baroda.

Morgan Stanley gave a double upgrade to SBI to overweight and highlighted that this was the first overweight since 2011. It also upgraded PNB, ICICI Bank and Axis Bank to overweight, while Bank of Baroda was upgraded to equal-weight.

Brokerage: Macquarie

Macquarie said that recapitalisation would likely further compress risk premiums. Along with this, it said, structural reforms in the banks need to be followed soon. A bold measure, it added, is that this is a first step towards solving a vexed issue. STOCK INTRADAY TIPS
