ICICI Securities report on BFSI Q3FY22 preview: Growth gathering pace; stress to subside

The third quarter of FY22 will be characterised by growth gathering pace and uptick in collections with recovery in business activities. Leading financiers have reported 3-8% QoQ loan growth and YoY growth, too, has gained traction. With lower slippages and improving collections/recoveries, we expect improvement in the overall stress pool and credit cost for banks. Behaviour of ECLGS lending pool and restructured portfolio would be key to watch out. For NBFCs/HFCs, the RBI’s notification relating to harmonisation of IRACP norms would likely result in an uptick in GNPAs. However, excess provisioning under ECL framework over IRACP norms is likely to limit rise in credit cost. HFCs are now required to implement minimum 50% LCR, the drag may weigh on their NIMs. For Q3FY22, we estimate 9% YoY growth in NII for banks, 2-4% operating profit growth while subsiding credit cost is expected to support >35% earnings growth.

Preferences and recommendations:

Growth momentum is gaining traction for HDFC Bank, Kotak, Federal and stress is being managed well by SBI, Axis Bank, thereby, improving visibility on earnings trajectory. We stay with them as our preferred picks. Amongst non-banks, we prefer Aditya Birla Capital, HDFC, Chola and CreditAccess Grameen.
