Nonetheless, NAB shares finished trading on Friday 1.37% higher to $32.63. This means that for April, its shares have remained relatively flat.

Meanwhile, the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) finished the month up 1.06% at 7,435 points.

When looking at the other major banks, NAB fared quite well.

While the bank didn’t release any market announcements throughout the month, a couple of brokers did weigh in on the NAB share price.

The team at Citi raised its 12-month price target for the bank’s shares by 8.2% to $33 apiece. It appears that the broker believes that NAB is fully valued at the moment, with investors agreeing alike given the current share price.
