The company's Q4 FY20 AUM grew 27 percent YoY to Rs 147,153 crore. Net interest income rose 38.4 percent YoY to Rs 4,679 crore in Q4 FY20. However, PAT fell 19.4 percent YoY due to high provisioning (up 377.4 percent YoY).

Brokerage firm Geojit has a buy recommendation on the stock with a target price of Rs 2,570.

"Recording strong topline performance in this quarter we believe that the heavy provisioning will give enough buffer in this challenging environment amidst COVID-19, eventually allowing the company to bounce back, we upgrade our rating to buy with a revised target price of Rs 2,570 based on 3.5 times FY22E BVPS," Geojit said.
