Motilal Oswal: RBI Lifting Restrictions Removes Key Overhang; See 43% Upside

“HDFC Bank stock has underperformed the broader banking universe in the recent past and hence lifting of these restrictions addresses a key overhang,” said analysts at Motilal Oswal Financial Services. Further, we expect the bank to deliver healthy business growth fueled by a pick-up in its retail (unsecured products) business and continued strength in the commercial banking business. We estimate HDFCB to report ~18 per cent PAT CAGR over FY22-24, with an RoA/ RoE of 2.0 per cent/17.5 per cent in FY24E, respectively. The stock has undergone a significant correction and is trading at 2.5x FY24E ABV (~2SD below its 10- year

average valuations), it added.

“Healthy provisioning coverage and a contingent provision buffer provide comfort on asset quality,” it added. “HDFC Bank is currently trading at an attractive valuation of 2.5x FY24E P/ABV, which offers favorable risk-reward. We maintain our BUY rating on the stock with a TP of Rs 2,000,” it said.

Morgan Stanley: RBI Nod Should Reduce Investor Concerns

Morgan Stanley has maintained an overweight rating on the stock with a target at Rs 2,050 per share. RBI nod should reduce investor concerns on bank’s digital capabilities and expect it to regain momentum as revenue growth accelerates.
