“You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. A second is equally important: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ The entire law and all the demands of the prophets are based on these two commandments.” Jesus Christ, Matthew 22:36-40

LKP Research's report on Federal Bank

Federal Bank has outgrown from the tag of old private sector bank by doing market share wins in businesses, acquiring customers rapidly, improvising processes & engagement levels with the clients, filling the service gaps, mending digital initiatives in line with private sector banks, building strong management bandwidth – to become at par with the other large private sector banks. However, this larger picture has been ignored in the chaos of NPA mess. Asset quality problems should also start to recede incrementally despite Kerala floods. In our view, once the dust settles on asset quality woes, the bank would get multiple re-rating. BUY with TP of 121, upside of 30%.


The current valuations of the bank offer decent upside. Currently, the bank is trading at 1.6x FY19e and 1.4x FY20e ABV. We give a BUY rating on the stock with the TP of 121 (discounting its FY20E ABV by 1.8x times).
