Shares of IndusInd Bank gained more than 6 percent intraday on October 8, a day ahead of the second quarter earnings announcement. Brokerage houses expect a healthy set of results from the private sector lender.
After falling for six straight sessions, banking and financial stocks rallied sharply on October 9, partly due to short covering and expectations of IndusInd Bank improving earnings in the September quarter.
The Nifty Bank index rallied 1,000 points, or 3.6 percent, while PSU Bank and Private Bank indices gained more than 3 percent each against a fall of 7.5 percent, 10.3 percent and 7.6 percent in the previous six sessions.
Motilal Oswal expects more than 43 percent growth in profit as well as net interest income, backed by 29 percent loan growth on Bharat Financial merger.
Margin is likely to expand to around 4.1 percent, driven by high-yielding book of Bharat Financial, while non-interest income may grow around 30 percent YoY, but credit cost is expected to remain elevated on the back of higher slippages and increased provision on the stressed groups, the brokerage said.
