'Which stock can I invest in the current scenario?'
Ajit Mishra, vice president, Research, Religare Brokingm answers your queries:


Kamakhya Prasad Tiwari: I've started investing in Yes Bank's shares and I wanted to know that if investing there would give me a good return in the future or not?

Ajit Mishra: Yes Bank has had corporate governance issues as well as deterioration of asset quality which has taken a big hit in recent times. The asset quality could worsen considering the impact of COVID-19 pandemic led disruption.

We would advise you to avoid the stock and wait for improvement in the financials before making any fresh investment.
