Bangkok Bank Public Company Limited (BBL.BK) $BBL Given Buy Rating By Shayne Heffernan
Big drop in bank stock prices walloped SET Index yesterday – Buy on Dips
Price: THB 106.50
The stock exchange of Thailand Index on Monday (June 22) fell by 18 points because of a 6.37 per cent drop in the price of bank stocks, experts said.
Investors sold bank stocks after the Bank of Thailand (BOT) ordered banks to hold off paying interim dividends and buying back shares to strengthen their capital to handle risks in the future.
Also, bank stocks were under pressure from the central bank’s measures to cut the interest rates charged for credit cards, personal credit and hire purchases to help people struggling with debt thanks to the Covid-19 crisis.
These factors caused the price of bank stocks to drop 6.37 per cent, while the SET Index fell by 18 points to 1,352 at yesterday’s close. Foreign and institutional investors made net sales in stocks of Bt3.106 billion and Bt3.695 billion, respectively.
Bangkok Bank’s stock dropped the most, by 9.09 per cent, followed by siam commercial bank (7.44 per cent), Kasikorn Bank (6.79 per cent), Tisco financial group (5.78 per cent), and Kiatnakin Bank (5.68 per cent).
Shayne Heffernan, CEO and Founder of Heffx said BOT’s order caused negative sentiment for bank stocks, although the banks’ capital adequacy ratio is currently 19.6 per cent, higher than the central bank’s minimum criteria of 12 per cent.“
The central bank’s announcement showed that the Covid-19 impact on the economy and asset quality may be worse than they expected,” he said. “BOT’s intervention always lends negative sentiment to bank stocks.”
