Comments by Emkay Global
Gibing a buy rating to this stock, Emkay Global said, "We retain our Buy rating on SHTF, using the excess return on equity (ERE) method for FY23E-24E RoE of ~14%. We raise NIMs for FY22/FY23/FY24 by 14bps on an average, we increase GS3/NS3 and credit costs to reflect the impact of the new NPA regime, and we raise the risk-free rate from 6.25% to 6.5%. Consequently, the computed cost of equity rises to 13.25%. Having conservatively accounted for the new NPA regime, SHTF can focus on its growth path and the merger with Shriram City Union Finance (SCUF)."
