The Oldest Private Sector Bank in India trading at a 9,371/- Crores (127/sh) after disappointing Q4 results owing to an increased provision of ~450 Cr (inc- 125Cr for future impact from COVID- 19).
However, the bank managed to keep ROA above 1% for the financial year ' 2020 with surplus liquidity (LCR of 260%) and business growth of 5%.
We strongly believe that most negative factors of CUB are "one-time" in nature and have been "priced in" making the stock available at current prices. As at March'2020, the bank's Net NPA stood at 2.29% while its Net Interest Margins stood at 3.98%. YoY Interest Income grew by 10.65%.
The bank has a long-standing record of rewarding its shareholders while maintaining a well-diversified, low-ticket size and high-quality loan book which reduces credit risk and is backed by adequate collateral.
Though 52% of its borrowers have opted for the moratorium we believe the repayments will not disappoint supporting interest growth since most of these advances were made at a higher interest rate.
We believe amidst all chaos in the Banking & NBFC sector the increasing demand for a safe banking stock will propel the stock to a conservative target of 164/- in the next three months.
