We revise our FY22/FY23 earnings downward by 9.1%/2.0% on account of higher credit costs and downgrade the stock to REDUCE from ADD with a revised TP of INR 4,832 from INR 4,928 (implied 5.5x Mar'23 ABV), implying a 19% downside Bajaj Finance (BAF) issued mid-quarter business guidance around the likely impact of the second wave on the companys AUM growth (lower by INR40-50bn) and credit costs (higher by INR11-13bn). The net impact of this update is neutral on our AUM growth estimates (we were conservative on AUM accretion compared to the managements earlier guidance) while we raise our above-consensus provisioning forecasts further. The >20% run-up in the stock since its Q4FY21 earnings appears to be pricing in unrealistic consensus expectations around growth and profitability, which warrants a reality check in light of this profit warning.

Bajaj Finance Ltd (BAF) has released its mid-quarter update highlighting the impact of the second COVID wave on AUM (INR40-50b, 3% of outstanding AUM) and provisioning (INR11-13b, 0.8% additional credit cost). A large portion of the provisioning is likely to be up-fronted in 1Q. New origination in B2B/other businesses are down to 40/60% vs planned level in May. We have tweaked our estimate based on the revised guidance. Despite an earnings cut of ~11% for FY22, ROEs are likely to be strong at 20%, and we believe the impact is likely to be transient. With the process of unlocking having...

Nippon Life India Asset Management: NAM has been able to stabilize its market share in the high-margin equity segment over the past two quarters at 7%. We expect it to focus on improving performance to continue recouping its lost market share. Additionally, we expect the company to benefit from increased credibility to raise HNI/institutional capital. Driven by cost optimization, we expect the company to deliver an FY21-23E revenue/NOPLAT CAGR of 12.7/17.5%. We maintain our ADD rating on the stock with a target price of INR360, valuing the stock at 36x Mar-23E NOPLAT + Mar-22E cash and investments. The stock is currently trading at FY22E/23E EV/NOPLAT of 39.9/32.8 and P/E of 34.4/28.9x. Symphony: Symphony clocked an all-round recovery with domestic, exports and subsidiaries revenues seeing beat in expectation. High trade inventory impacted domestic revenue during 9MFY21 (down by 50% YoY) while the strong 28% YoY growth in 4QFY21 (despite a firm base) reflects positive sentiment of trade partners. RoW revenue grew by 46% YoY, owing to robust exports (delay in shipment in 3Q) and recovery of CT, Australia (up 85% YoY). Thereby, consolidated revenue saw robust 36% growth. Domestic EBIT margin contracted by >650bps YoY, owing to high commodity inflation and delay in price hike. RoW EBIT margin saw sharp improvement (18% vs. 2% YoY) due to margin recovery in CT, Australia (EBITDA margin of 17% vs. -2% YoY). We are encouraged by an all-round recovery (key rationale for our stock upgrade in Jan-21); however, localised lockdown has raised concerns on summer-2021 performance for cooling products. As...

Opening up of businesses, collections closer to pre-Covid levels and adequate provisioning buffers for any untoward stress indicate positive undercurrents for NBFCs. Closer to higher single digit AUM growth, NIM improvement underpinned by reduced B/S liquidity and peaked out credit costs sum up Q3FY21 earnings expectations. Gold and housing financiers should continue to outshine other asset classes both in terms of growth and asset quality.
