CLSA: Rating: Buy | Target: Rs 3,000
Strong NIM aids PPoP, asset quality deteriorates marginally. The core business outlook has improved and valuations are reasonable.
Kotak Institutional Equities: Rating: Buy | Target: Rs 3,100
Strong performance in Q1 with stable NIM. Marginal rise in stressed loans despite a challenging business environment. Lower disbursements in April and May tempered retail loan growth. The company remains the best mortgage play in India. Improving realty cycle, strong debt market position makes it a favoured pick in the sector. It has large provisioning buffers on the balance sheet and valuations are favourable.
Macquarie: Rating: Outperform | Target: Rs 2,960/Sh
Asset quality remains the biggest plus point. Weaker loan growth is due to a decline in the non-individual book. The stock is cheap at current levels.Disclaimer: The above report is compiled from information available on public platforms.
