IndusInd Bank Share Price Rallies 10% Post Good Quarterly Results

For the past few days, a private sector banking stock was under serious pressure.

The bank in question is IndusInd Bank.

Last week in a regulatory filing, IndusInd Bank said the Enforcement Directorate (ED) has lodged an investigation against certain entities and some bank employees.

This added to some short-term pressure and because the primary reason why IndusInd Bank share price was falling.

But how quickly the tables have turned!

In the past four days, IndusInd Bank share price has rallied 18% and erased all the losses of 2022.

The reason? Good quarterly results.

IndusInd Bank post market hours on Wednesday reported its Q1 results.

Analysts were already expecting a good quarter for the bank so the stock's run up to its result declaration was good.

Here are five key takeaways from IndusInd Bank's Q1 results.

  • IndusInd Bank's net profit for the quarter ended June 2022 came in at Rs 16.3 bn as compared to Rs 10.2 bn reported last year in the same quarter. This is a growth of 61% YoY.
  • The surge is net profit is due to higher net interest income (NII). IndusInd Bank's NII showed a 16% growth to Rs 41.3 bn.
  • In the exchange filing, the bank said its net interest margin (NIM) improved marginally by 10 basis points (bps) to 4.21% from 4.2% sequentially.
  • IndusInd Bank also showed improvement on the non-performing asset (NPA) ratios. The bank's gross NPA ratio improved from 2.88% to 2.35% while net NPA ratio improved to 0.67% from 0.84% YoY.

    IndusInd Bank is one of the Indian banks which has the lowest NPAs.
  • On the credit front, the bank's MD and CEO Sumant Kathpalia said that while the bank's guidance is for a 16-18% compound annual growth rate per year (CAGR), the bank is aiming for a 20% CAGR in the current year.

Equitymaster's view on IndusInd Bank

We reached out to Tanushree Banerjee, editor of StockSelect at Equitymaster, on what she has to say about the lender's performance.

Here's Tanushree:

    IndusInd Bank's results are reflective of a trend that may be seen across the banking sector in the next couple of quarters.

    Strong credit growth along with rise in lending rates have come at a time when NPA levels have moderated, and treasury incomes are high.

    Therefore, higher than expected profit growth is given in the near term. Over time once deposit rates also catch up with the lending rates, the lending margins may moderate.

In fact, Tanushree had predicted last month that the coming quarters for banking sector stocks will be good.
