Bank of Baroda shares in trade on December 30, 2021 are down even as reports hint at likely or probable inclusion of the stock in Nifty Bank. The stock last traded down by over 1 percent at Rs. 80.15 per share.
Meanwhile, RBL Bank which is facing leadership issues at the lender has tumbled by 10 percent intra-day.
Several brokerages have downgraded the stocks as the leadership issues at the firm seemed to come as a surprise. The bank to its defence put up that the developments in no way are representative of the fundamentals. Further it said that the business momentum as well as financial performance of the lender has been improving since the second quarter of the fiscal year.
The RBL Bank outlook seems skeptical and in case of the exclusion from the Nifty Bank index the bank shall see heavy outflow.
