Investment Rationale
SBIN has historically delivered over 15% RoE for 10 years, before the worst phase of the corporate cycle hit earnings, to the point that the bank reported back-to-back losses in FY17/FY18. It reported a strong FY21/1QFY22 in a challenging environment. Deposit growth stood strong, led by healthy CASA trends, while loan growth is likely to recover gradually over FY22-23E. Asset quality outlook remains particularly encouraging. The management has improved PCR to ~68%. Continued recoveries would further support the earnings momentum. SBIN holds unutilized COVIDrelated provisions of ~INR91b, which should limit credit cost. SBIN has reported a RoE of ~9.5% in FY21 – the highest since AQR started in FY16 and is now aiming to reclaim 15% RoE in the medium term. The brokerage projects a RoA/RoE of 0.8%/14.6% by FY23E, and reiterate SBIN as top BUY with a TP of INR600/share (1.4x FY23E ABV + INR190/share from subsidiaries).
