Banks with heavy corporate books have seen significant stock correction in the recent times, a reflection of the stress build-up across their portfolios.

It also expects rise in near-term delinquency and credit costs as stressed metal names have not been recognised.Terming Axis Banks' retail good as "good bank", Nomura indicate that the private lenders retail and SME book will continue to deliver ROEs of 18-20 per cent.
