Yes Bank shares dropped over 11 per cent and IndusInd Bank's by nearly 8 per cent on Thursday afternoon after Swiss multinational brokerage house UBS slashed price target sharply by 47 per cent and 18 per cent respectively citing weak earnings going ahead.
UBS downgraded IndusInd Bank to sell and cut target to Rs 1,400 from Rs 1,700 earlier. In the case of Yes Bank, the brokerage maintained sell rating and slashed the target to Rs 90 from Rs 170 apiece.
On Wednesday, Moody's placed Yes Bank's Ba1 foreign currency issuer rating under review for a downgrade. The US credit rating agency said the review takes into account ongoing liquidity pressures on finance companies, which may negatively impact the credit profile of Yes Bank, given its sizeable exposure to weak companies in the sector.
