MUMBAI - Shares of ICICI Bank (NS: ICBK ) saw a significant uptick in early morning trading today, following the announcement of a robust increase in its net profit for the third quarter. The bank reported a net profit of Rs 10,271.54 crore, alongside improvements in both gross and net Non-Performing Assets (NPAs).

The financial performance details revealed an impressive rise in the bank's Net Interest Income (NII), a key indicator of profitability for banks. This financial metric, which represents the difference between the revenue generated from a bank's assets and the expenses associated with paying out its liabilities, showed significant growth, reflecting the bank's enhanced earnings capacity.

Moreover, ICICI Bank's asset quality showed signs of strengthening, with gross NPAs declining to 2.3%. This improvement in asset quality was also reflected in the bank's net NPA figures, which further underscored the bank's robust risk management framework and the recovery in asset quality.

In response to these positive developments, leading brokerages have revised their outlook on ICICI Bank's stock. Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS ), Macquarie, and CLSA have all issued favorable ratings, with 'overweight', 'outperform', and 'buy' recommendations, respectively. These endorsements are indicative of the bank's strong financial health and the potential for future growth, which has resonated positively with investors, as evidenced by the rise in share price to Rs 1042.40.
