5.Valuation Update

Key Risks for SBI
  • Macroeconomic risk is the biggest risk for SBI, given its size and exposures. General economic slowdown, lower IRRs on projects, slackened risk appetite constitute the overall macroeconomic risk. General activity slowdown could adversely impact performance as SBI is a proxy to the economy.
  • Deepening geographic penetration by newer private sector banks can lead to faster than expected decline in SBI’s market share.
Valuation Update
  • Before the announcement of Q1 FY results, market capitalisation of SBI was around Rs.2.83 Lakh Cr with PE ratio of almost 35.17. After releasing the results, the market cap of the bank has fallen to Rs.2.67 Lakh Cr. with PE ratio of 33.29.
  • Despite the disappointment in asset quality, it is estimated that core ROA and ROE may improve in coming 4-5 quarters led by the improvement in NIM, controlled expenses and reduction in stressed asset formation.
  • The value embedded in non-banking subsidiaries is stabilising and scalable. Listing of profitable subsidiaries like SBI Cards can also improve the valuation of the SBI.
  • The Net profit of SBI (standalone) is estimated at around Rs.23,000 Cr for FY20 with the estimated earnings per share (EPS) to be almost Rs.25 per share. As a result of increase in the EPS numbers, the PE ratio of the stock will come down up to 9-11, with the expected correction in the stock in FY20 according to the current valuation.
