Bank of Baroda Q1 – 2017 Q4 – 2016 Q1 – 2016 %Change Q-Q % change Y-Y
Total Income 11,877.91 12,789.06 12,243.72 -7.12% -2.99%

Net NPA 20,783.77 19,406.46 8,470.02 7.10% 145.38%

 

The carnage in banking sector continues, the only positivity we can take from this results is that the gross NPA’s and net NPA’s increment had slowed down to 6% -7%, but still above the normal rate. We can also see deterioration in its fundamentals where deposits have fallen down and also the advances. If these two variables are in negative growth path, we will have to wait for longer time to see any meaningful profits to be reported from this bank.

We do not track this bank as it doesn’t qualifies our quality grading, but paying almost 0.70 times to book value looks premium price to pay today looking at its asset quality.
