Expert View on Yes Bank
Ambareesh Baliga, Independent Market Expert told CNBC-TV18 that the bottom for Yes Bank could be around Rs 85 or so. "We suggested buying a bit more at around Rs 110 levels as I don't think bank shutting down due to current problems. Look at ICICI Bank, it had also problem in the past which resolved over the time. So for next 12-18 months, Yes Bank is a great opportunity to buy now."
