Analyst Opinions

Brokerage firm Motilal Oswal Financial Services has a buy recommendation for PNB shares, citing the bank’s consistent business growth and quarter-on-quarter improvement in the CASA ratio.

However, global brokerage firm Morgan Stanley has maintained an underweight view on the stock with a target price of ₹55. The firm highlighted potential stress from the restructured book and the MSME segment as key risks for PNB.

Technical analysts suggest that investors can consider buying the stock on declines but should exercise caution if it falls below critical support levels. They point out that despite a recent pullback from ₹83 to ₹80, there may be a retracement towards ₹77.50-78, where support is expected.

Overall, PNB shares have witnessed a substantial rally since the beginning of 2023, and analysts have varying opinions on its future potential, with some recommending buying on dips and others advising caution.
