Why Bajaj Finserv Share Price is Rising

Jul 30, 2022

Why Bajaj Finserv Share Price is Rising

In the last 5 trading sessions, Sensex & Nifty are up more than 2%.

But Bajaj Finserv, a fintech company, has rallied by more than 17% in the same period.

So, what are the key factors behind this sharp rise in the share price of Bajaj Finserv?

Let's dig a little deeper into this...

#1 Quarterly Results

On 28 July 2022, Bajaj Finserv announced its outstanding quarterly results.

Its consolidated net profit for the quarter ended June 2022 jumped 57% to Rs 13.1 bn. It stood at Rs 8.3 bn a year ago.

Revenues for the quarter increased 145% year on year (YoY) to Rs 158.9 bn.

The company's subsidiary Bajaj Finance's assets under management (AUM) have surpassed the Rs 2,000 bn mark, standing at Rs 2,040 bn.

Bajaj Finance also reported the highest quarterly consolidated profit after tax (PAT) of Rs 2.5 bn in the June 2022 quarter. Thanks to strong AUM growth, higher net interest income, and improved asset performance.

PAT increased by 96% at its wholly owned corporation Bajaj Housing Finance Loan (BHFL).

Bajaj Finserv appears to be benefitting from its own strong performance and from the strong performance of its subsidiaries.

Bajaj Finserv is a consistent compounding stock that has beaten market volatility to deliver both great results, and a sharp rise in stock price.

Bajaj Finserv is one of the fastest growing companies in India.

When investors look for the multibagger stocks for the next 10 years, they look for the traits of Bajaj Finserv.

#2 Stock Split and Bonus Issue

The board of directors of Bajaj Finserv approved the split of its equity shares in the ratio of 5:1.

In simple words, each share with a face value of Rs 5 will be divided into 5 shares with a face value of Rs 1.

As per company exchange filling, the following describes the goals of the stock split and bonus:

  • The company and its subsidiaries have grown significantly, in terms of business and performance, over the years.

    Among its peers, the share price of the company is one of the highest while having one of the smallest capital bases.

    As and when the stock price rises further, it will be increasingly difficult for small potential shareholders to partake in the company's future.

The stock split is intended to increase liquidity in the capital market. Additionally, it will broaden the shareholder base.

In addition, the company has announced the issuance of bonus shares with a face value of Re 1 for every fully paid-up equity share of Re 1. This implies the bonus shares will be distributed following the stock split.

Corporate action events such as bonus issues and stock split frequently cause changes in a company's capital structure.

The investors have welcomed this decision with great euphoria.

Bajaj Finserv Performance Lately

Today, Bajaj Finserv share price opened the day 2% higher at Rs 15,000. The previous close was Rs 14,650.

In the past 5 trading sessions, the share price has rallied more than 17%.

Bajaj Finserv hit a 52-week high of Rs 19,320 on 19 October 2021. And its 52-week low of Rs 10,777, which it reached earlier this month on 1 July.
