Agarwal told CNBC-TV18, "One should continue holding on Karnataka Bank and we have a buy call on this. If you get it around Rs 160 buy the stock for a target of Rs 225 for one year down the line. Valuation wise, even after the current run up it is trading at a huge discount, PE of around 10, price to book value of 1.1. With 550 branches by FY13, trading at a market cap of around Rs 3,000 crore- per branch it comes to around Rs 550 crore that is highly lucrative, so one should buy this."

The poor sets of numbers were just because of huge debt but they have a huge power capacity of around 9225 megawatt out of which 4367 megawatt is already operational.
