HDFC Securities' research report on ICICI Bank

A  ballooning of GNPAs in 4QFY18 (102bps QoQ) overshadowed some significant positives for ICICIBC. Domestic loan growth sustained (+15% YoY) while NIMs improved 10bps sequentially (3.24%). The watchlist nose-dived to ~Rs 47.2bn (vs  ~Rs  190.6bn  in 3Q) and net stress reduced substantially (~6% vs 9.9% YoY).  Creditable CASA addition (Rs 431bn in FY18), steady growth in retail loans   (21%  YoY),  fees  (+16%)  and  controlled  opex  (+9%)  were  also encouraging.


We expect RoAAs  to pull back 36bps over FY18-20E as a result. Maintain BUY with a TP of Rs 377 (1.7x Mar-20 core ABV of Rs 150 and sub-value of Rs 122).
