Valuation & Outlook
Legacy book being provided for, wage provision needs also limited and scope for NIM expansion augur well for the bank's future earnings. Covid-19 provisions and hangover of Yes Bank are keeping the stock performance muted. Expect return ratios at RoA at 0.5% and 9.1% RoE by FY22E. We maintain HOLD with a target price at Rs. 215, valuing the stock at 0.7x FY22E ABV standalone bank and assigning subsidiaries value of Rs. 80 post holding company discount. The MD's tenure ending by October 2020 may create some anxiety in the stock.
