Views of Mr. Siddharth Purohit (Sr. Equity Research Analyst- Banking, Angel Broking):
"Karur Vysya Bank (KVB) is one of the oldest private sector banks with strong presence in the Southern parts of India. More than 53% of KVB's 706 branches are located in Tamil Nadu, however it is gradually branching out in other parts of India also.
KVB's earnings were impacted due to higher provisions and lower business growth, however, we expect gradual recovery on both the fronts going ahead. While in FY2018 we expect earnings recovery to be visible, sharp growth is expected in FY2019. At the CMP the stock is trading at 1.1x it's FY2019 BV. We have valued the stock at 1.4x its FY2019E BV and recommend BUY with a Target Price of INR 140 over the next 12 months."
