Stock advantages: Motilal Oswal
Commenting about the stock, Motilal Oswal said, "Demand/volumes for Commercial Vehicles (CVs) have remained strong for the past three-to-four months. This demand momentum in CVs is likely to sustain and should aid SHTF, which is a predominant play on Used CV financing. SHTF has delivered historically high levels of disbursements over the last three quarters, aided by higher ticket sizes and greater volumes. Capacity utilization levels remain high. The management foresees a strong CV cycle over the next three years. It is making steady progress on the announced merger, with various cross-sell pilots being run across identified branches. We model an AUM/PAT CAGR of 11%/21% over FY22-24 for an FY24 RoA/RoE of 2.5%/13%."
Additionally, "Our estimates suggest that ~50% of the growth in FY22 was aided by higher ticket sizes and the balance was attributable to higher volumes. Commentaries from fleet operators and vehicle financiers seem to suggest that capacity utilization has been high at 80-85% all through Jan-May'22. We expect this to translate into disbursement/AUM CAGR of 8%/11% over FY22-24 for SHTF," the brokerage firm stated.
