We expect Can Fin to deliver PAT CAGR of 30% over FY16-18E with an improvement in ROE from 18.9% in FY16 to 22.7% in FY18E. With the new reduced risk weightages, we believe Can Fin will be able to generate 20%+ ROE on a sustained basis from FY17E onwards, which would lead to a re-rating in the stock and thus we raise our target multiple for Can Fin for FY18 from 3.0x to 3.2x (a 10% discount to peers due to comparatively lower ROE) and arrive at a target of INR1,550 (earlier INR1,300). On P/E basis, Can Fin is trading at 17x FY17E and 13x FY18E EPS.
