Why is the share price of PNB Home Finance declining?
Ravi Singhal, CEO of GCL Broking, commented on why PNB Housing Finance’s stock price dropped following the news of a rights offering, “The stock appears weak on the chart pattern, and the issue has been offered at a significant discount. Profit-booking was consequently triggered after the rights issue announcement, which also indicates that stock market investors have little interest in the rights offer of PNB Home Finance. The financial stock currently has immediate support at 370 per share after branching out from its previous support of 425.”
