Even as the major stocks went low today, there was one stock that will make you rich quite impressively is Yes Bank, which is the top gainer on Indices.

There seems to be no concrete ground as to why Yes Bank shares have risen today. Currently, the bank needs new CEO and MD as their chief Rana Kapoor will be exiting from his position by end of January 2019, something that can be blamed to RBI.
As per reports of Macquarie, the corporate governance issue at Yes Bank have pulled the stock down ~50% in the last three months vs a relatively flat market. Having said that we now assess what could really be the worst case scenario for Yes Bank.
The worst case fair value for YES bank could be Rs 140-160, which assumes a gross NPL ratio of 7-10% and a fair value multiple of 1.4x. This implies there is a very limited downside from current levels.
However, it all now depends on two key events – appointment of new CEO and divergence report. Confidence can be expected to return only if the new CEO is of credible pedigree and has a good track record. Getting the divergences down to minimum is very essential for a market to get back some confidence in the stock. Capital raising in the wake of these events will be an added trigger.

The shortlisted candidates will be sent to RBI for approval. It is expected that RBI will approve the new CEO, and the divergence report for FY18 too will be released somewhere in January 2019.
