As our readers know, the basic part of quantitative fundamental analysis is Valuation ratios.
Valuation Ratios of HDFC Bank Ltd
Unlike others, Bank Shares will have a different set of valuation methods and aspects to understand the safety and stability of the bank.
1. Book Value
Book value is known as the loan book of a bank.
It has grown by 23% in Q2’2021 compared to the previous quarter. The current total Book value of Q2’2021 is Rs. 1609428 Cr.
Book Value per Share is Rs. 321.63.
2. Price to Book Value
The P/B ratio of the current market price (CMP) is 3.81. This too high, the share price is 3.81 times higher than the book value. P/B of a bank stock should be less than 1 ideally. Banks like HDFC with 18% year on year revenue, can have a P/B of a maximum of 2.
3.81 is really a worrying sign for investors.
3. Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR)
CAR is the most important parameter to analyze before investing in bank shares. It states the percentage of capital against the total credit of the bank.
A Bank should have a minimum CAR of 15%.
HDFC Bank Ltd currently has 19.1% as of Q2’2021. It was at 18.5% and 17.5% at FY2020 and Q2’2020 respectively.
It has shown a perfect increase in the CAR quarter on Quarter.
4. Non Performing Assets (NPA%)
NPA is termed as the percentage of outstanding loans without any return to the total estimated asset.
As NPA increases, bank stability decreases. There is no minimum threshold in NPA%. Every bank loves to keep NPA at 0, ultimately not possible.
There are two types of NPA – Gross, and Net.
HDFC Bank Ltd current (Q2’2021) Gross NPA – 1.08% and Net NPA – 0.17%. This has reduced from Gross NPA – 1.38% and Net NPA -0.42% of Q1’2021.
In terms of NPA too, HDFC Bank Ltd has shown a great green signal for its investors of safety and stability.
