The bank`s high credit growth was backed by strong low-cost deposit growth, rather than chasing risky loans using high-cost deposits. Moreover, with the improving economic outlook and reducing corporate leverage, NPA concerns are receding and could provide upside to our earnings estimates (which still factor NPA provisions at 0.5% of assets in FY2011E vs. an average of 0.4% over FY2006-10). The stock is trading at attractive valuations of 2.6x FY2012E P/ABV. Hence, it maintains a `Buy` on the stock with a target price of Rs1,688 (at 3.2x FY2012E P/ABV).
