    ICICI Bank has recovered after dipping below Rs 200/- level. Will the concerns over NPAs continue to be a overhang for the private banking major? What is your call on the stock at current levels?

    RAHUL SHAH

    Overall retail franchise, margins and asset quality performance remains strong. While secured retail loan growth remains strong, outlook/risk appetite is improving for unsecured retail and SME loans. stock price has already incorporated the worst scenario. • Valuations are attractive at AP/ABV of 1.3x (FY17E). Very bullish in ICICI

    Post Budget, most of the PSU banks have rallied more than 10%. Nifty PSU Banks outperformed the market by gaining 14% as compared to 7% rise in Nifty 50 and 9% gain in Nifty Bank index. What is view going forward and your top picks?

    RAHUL SHAH

    Markets will continue to do well . I believe Equity will be the best avenue of investment for next three years. There is lot of pessimism , that's the best time to allocate more funds. In Banking sector i prefer Icici , axis, sbi

    The government has been pushing for consolidation of public sector banks (PSBs) to merge small and weak banks with large ones. Do you think the idea to bring the number of PSBs down to six or seven strong players would work out?

    Yes
