Revenue pattern of COMB.N almost similar to the pattern of SAMP.N.

Banks are institutions whose performance is directly affected by fiscal and monetary policies. This may be the reason that make similar patterns.

Market price of a company does not rely purely on performance. There can be many other reasons.. Can I first finish presenting slices of COMB and answer your question later ?

The sheer size of the leasing & HP of COMB is big enough to overcome the entire revenue of big NBFIs.

Further during last two years Banks have absorbed Leasing from big NBFIs.

Big commercial banks have pushed other small bankt to find areas where they do not compete and to earn profits from such areas.

As COMB is the biggest listed Finance Intermediary , we can suspect that those not listed have obtained a bigger share of Profit of Banking sector. So its worth while studying BOC and People's Bank

Yes, market price of a share does not always link with the performance of a company.  Market sentiment, liquidity, selling pressure of a big investor, buying interest of a HNWI, and many other factors will affect to the share price.

Thanks for the effort in getting these graphs under one thread. Only thing is that most of the transactions went @ 120 and this will move the price up to where it was before the slip-sliding took place.

Disagree - getting to where it was will take a considerable amount of time !

We have repeatedly warned to AVOID big Banking shares such as this one till Q3 , 2016 as they will underperform in share price appreciation .vs. ASI appreciation.

ASI went from 5800 to 6050+ but COMB didn't appreciate .

These will have there time much later...NOT NOW .

Agree fully. The same goes for JKH.N.

It will takes its own time and ST Traders will not be interested in these. Nevertheless, there aren't any other entities that have a voracious Appitite for investment currently.

Nothng new is happening.
I am longing to see another IPO which is backed by parties with good standing and credentials.

The investment climate may not be conducive for this at this moment. May be in the coming months!

Commercial Bank seems to be a good conservative bank and its Capital Adequacy Ratios are well above Tier 1 expectation of above 5% and Tier 2 expectation of above 10%.



Comparison of capita adequacy with Sampath Bank is shown below

2016

Entire banking sector enjoyed year 2006, the year where it was predicted to be badly affected as banks were expected to not to do leasing. Following chart shows how fruitful that year including the leading commercial bank.
