Looking at the performance of the six biggest publicly traded banks (HNB, DFCC, COMB, SEYB, NDB, NTB) in the last five years and the tough environment they had to function, it will only point to one conclusion. The mixture of positive reforms, level playing field legislation and free and open market will attract considerable interest from lot of people. There are hardly any major indian, singaporean, hongkong, japanse, euro or american funds invested in Sri Lankan Stock market. The days of Rs.100 COMB stock is over. When CSE is caught on the purview of the major funds, most of the bank stocks will be unreachable for the common Sri Lankan investor.
The hard work was done on Jan 8th. Now press for reforms, collect what you can before the horde breaks through the doors and plough their billions into CSE. The lucky and wise will sit back and see their money make children and grand-children.
