Here is what brokerages have to say about the stock and the company after Q1 earnings:

Morgan Stanley: Rating: Overweight | Target: Rs 3,160

NII and Core PPoP growth were strong, individual AUM growth picked up. Non-individual AUM growth is likely to be subdued for a longer term. Stage 2+3 loans appear to have peaked. We trim FY 22/23 EPS estimates by 6%/5%.

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.
