But we at InvestorZclub believe that bank stocks should be avoided at this point of time when the interest rate has yet not peaked and RBI is expected to raise the rates further because of stubbornly high inflation.
One can start looking at quality bank stocks only after there are signs of moderation in Inflation and interest rate without which the banks would continue to under perform.
We at InvestorZclub have been bearish on banks since past few months (http://investorzclub.blogspot.com/2011/05/should-one-invest-in-banking-stocks-now.html) and continue to do so because of high inflation, interest rates and increasing NPAs.
