Gains for Axis Bank come from lender assurances that the growth upswing can continue
Axis Bank’s stock increased on November 25 as a result of analysts’ positive reactions to the lender’s long-term outlook at the annual analyst day meeting on November 24.
According to the brokerage company ICICI Securities, the lender’s management proved its capacity to transfer “intent” into “action” in order to produce guided outcomes and initiatives launched over the past several years to increase its capacity to deliver more effective and sustainable outcomes.
Analysts cited the lender’s view that stickinginess can be achieved by focusing more on client pleasure than expansion as a major lesson from the executive meeting.
The idea that a better client experience will increase stickiness, improve revenue at a lower risk with more data to track, and possibly differentiate the bank in this cycle through greater risk-adjusted returns.
Paytm rises on low-level purchases and supportive analyst commentary
One 97 Communications, the company that owns Paytm, saw its shares soar on November 25 as a result of low-level buying as interest in the stock increased as a result of favourable analyst commentary.
The stock increased by about 7% to Rs 470 per share on the BSE last Friday after reaching a record low of Rs 439.6 in the previous session.
Many believe that Paytm’s selling has been excessive and that now would be a good time to buy the stock, which has been trending downward. The majority of brokerages are bullish on the stock; some predict an increase of over 100% in the next 12 months.
As investors put strategic bets, railway stocks are being raced.
Some sector-specific stocks have recently gained attention as a result of investors gobbling up shares of railroad businesses. Shares of Titagarh Wagons, Indian Railway Finance Corporation Ltd. (IRFC), Rail Vikas Nigam Ltd. (RVNL), and Texmaco Rail and Engineering traded 5–10% higher on the BSE at 11:23am today.
On the BSE, Titagarh Wagons stock and shares of RVNL were both stuck in the upper circuit at Rs. 186.35 and Rs. 80.30, respectively.
In the previous month, RVNL created returns of 96% and IRFC produced returns of 51%. Shares of IRFC, RVNL, RITES, Titagarh Wagons, Texmaco Rail and Engineering, and Railtel Corporation of India have increased between 18 and 147% over the last three months.
Typically, railroad stocks are used as a tactical play. This indicates that investors are purchasing these equities as a short-term investment wager in anticipation of a government declaration.

Why Saurabh Mukherjea dislikes public sector banks
Although Saurabh Mukherjea, the founder of Marcellus Investment Managers, is not a fan, public sector banks have recently been in high demand due in part to their improving financial performance.
The Nifty PSU Bank index, a gauge of public sector bank shares, has increased by 55% so far in 2022, with the majority of the gains beginning in September. Over the previous five years, it only returned 6%, though.
In the September quarter, many PSU Banks, particularly State Bank of India (SBI), Bank of Baroda, and Canara Bank, produced outstanding quarterly results thanks to improved credit growth and higher recoveries. Their prospects were also enhanced by a drop in bad loans.
The pattern, though, hasn’t persisted. The majority of smaller banks, like Punjab National Bank, are still heavily burdened by toxic debt. The market has ignored this and has indiscriminately purchased PSU banks.
