HDFC Bank Shares Fall As Provisions Jump


Shares in HDFC Bank fell nearly 2.5 per cent, after the bank's provisions rose and so did the net non performing assets and gross non performing assets. The shares of the bank were last trading at Rs 2314, down 2.5 per cent over the previous close.

The shares, which normally do not react sharply, fell, as investors were unhappy with the provisions. Also, given that the bank's stock trades at rich multiples, any scope for disappointment can lead to a sharp sell-off.
