Axis Bank shares fall 5% post Q3 earnings. Should you buy, sell or hold?

Axis Bank shares fell over 5% to Rs 1,034.75 on Wednesday despite higher-than-expected December quarter earnings. Positive commentary from brokerages failed to alleviate selling pressure in top banking counters. Morgan Stanley maintained an ‘Overweight’ stance, while Nuvama maintained a ‘Buy’ view. However, Motilal downgraded the rating to ‘Neutral’ due to growth challenges. Axis Bank reported a 4% YoY jump in standalone net profit to Rs 6,071 crore. Net interest income in Q3 rose 9% to Rs 12,532 crore.
