* Shares in India's Yes Bank Ltd gain 2.7 percent
after Nomura upgraded the stock to "buy" from "neutral" and
raised its target price to 615 rupees from 425 rupees.
* Nomura says Yes Bank was granted 146 new branch licenses by
the RBI, which should improve returns on assets (ROA).
* These licenses should be implemented over the next 18 months,
and improve the bank's current and savings account (CASA) ratios
to 26 percent for fiscal 2015 from 18.3 percent as of the third
quarter of fiscal 2013, Nomura estimates.
* Net interest margins should improve to 3.45 percent by fiscal
2015 from 2.95 percent in fiscal 2013, driving a 15-20 bps ROA
improvement, Nomura says.
