Among the stocks that hit 52-week lows from the banking space included the likes of Yes Bank, Jammu & Kashmir Bank and South Indian Bank.

Several Banking, NBFC Stocks Plunge To 52-Week Lows

Many other banking stocks were also very close to their 52-week lows including the likes of Karnataka Bank and Bank of India.

In fact, Karnataka Bank is available on a cum dividend basis. Other stocks from the NBFC sector like DHFL also fell sharply to a new 52-week low. High quality names like L&T Finance did not fall to a new 52-week low, but, was trading very close to these levels.

Investors have turned weary of investing in the smaller private sector banks, as also select NBFCs, following the IL&FS crisis. This has made some of the stocks attractive even for dividend yield. Good quality stocks like L&T Finance Holdings, which has a strong pedigree has also seen its share price dive and the share is now available at a p/e of just 11 times one year forward earnings.
