The above graph looks similar now with recent prices (which I will post later). But the trend line has moved down. ASI downtrend as a whole is one reason too.

Thanks. I think some companies have adjusted in price to an attractive level now. Specially considering 2016 dividend yield.

Looking at the graphs above it proves a point.
however, we are still left which a heavy decision between P/B or ROE??

I would take the middle path with PLC since it has a good backing and promising new 3rd quarter to pass with an attractive share price of 22.3-22.5!

I have already gone for PLC in a big way. Hope my deductions are correct. let wait and see.

I like the way you have presented FG.

Are the calculations based on last year's earnings (Last 4 quarters)?

xmart - what you said is one of the most important things to look at. Must check the segmentation of the loans also. But this detail I don't have ready at hand.

HUNTER - yes last 4 quarters

Thanks, i pulled my hair out trying to figure out banking & finance cash flow and finance status. being s self student of finance (never had commerce subject even in O/L, had an engineering accounting in my uni life; but i never paid attention) i found its hard to segmentation of their finance position and cash flow in to tiny pieces.

if possible, please enlighten us with those fragment details.

thanks

Thanks FG.

X,

Analyzing the finance sector is one of the easiert and hardest things.
Few get it right.

Some thought COCR Was god the way they grew initially.
When we warned about the issues they can have some people must have thought
we are jealous or carzy of them holding the super Rs 70 share then.

Same can be said about BLI growth.

I am not going to say much here, but if one Analyzed CFIN in deoth so much can be learnt about stability , growth , share price etc .

FGs charts are real time savers for many.. Thanks FG for sharing...

Central Industries which is a family owned business shows slow steady growth without running into booms ( and busts)..

Should a company grab the market when its booming or should it confine to its stability....? This is something we have to discuss...

Fiscal policies often affect to the market of vehicles.. Sometimes its luxury end that get the benefit and sometimes its lower end cars that get the benefit...

Leasing and Finance companies based on their position get the benefit of these ends... CDB, COCR had a good time with booming of three wheeler.. Now that market is not booming..

How much can these finance companies quickly adopt to fiscal changes is the problem...?

Hence the past performance is not always represent the future of market potential...

YK


COCR made fortune initially with micro financing. The risk was not from leasing.

CDB : look at the CDB thread. I gave huge amount of new info.

Also best not forget leasing sector has benefits too still in certain areas.
Not everything is negative Wink Wink Wink

thanks SLS, YK & FG,

as i understood, we cannot rely on past performance much on finance & bank sector due to its exposure to interest rate, other policy decisions of gov and overall economy of the country.

those all data belong to low interest rate & favorable leasing business regime. now they have to find new products with high ROE to remain attractive. only thing we can get from the past is how efficient and strong their management and their ability to perform in unfavorable condition.

by looking above, i get LFIN & CDB are innovative in their business while PLC is showing steady growth.
i am not sure how interest rates will affect banking sector.

thanks

xmart - I won't bother to look at cashflows in typical finance companies. In case of CIFL they were capitalizing interest of some real estate so were not getting cash but normally that is not the business

Balance sheet is more important. Income and expense is based on that.

How much loans/leases and what kind? Interest rate and income and also NPL depend on it
How much deposits and other borrowings? What are the tenure? Short term maturing deposits are higher risk can be lower cost.
Investment portfolio and other type of assets
These companies are required to have certain amount of liquidity so it is normal to have some cash balance and not a big positive

How much income comes as net interest and how much as fees? More fees means it is less volatile to interest rate movement.

NIM, NPL, CAR, ROA, ROE, cost/income are other factors to look at

FG has done a superb analysis with past data of finance companies...
SLS has provided enough information on CDB.
Now Xmart is going to do his own homework and come back with nice presentation on Finance field...

Very good and this is what we really need in a forum like this.

Yes
Micro Finance was the fortune to COCR as well as BIL .We have to be very careful on growth of Micro Finance as we discussed with a practical example .

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Even though new registration of vehicles is purely depending on Fiscal policies, the second hand market is always remaining active.

Thus as SLS pointed out even though fiscal policies are not clear, the Finance filed will find its own way

Dear FG, can you give some analysis on csf ? What you think about the future of it? I heard some micro finance act came last week. Will it be an effect to micro finance companies?
Comments and ideas of others are also really welcome.. I love you

CSF looks to be making a turnaround. look above impairment level last quarter but has not paid taxes. Need to see one or two more quarters to be sure but this is the time to take the call depending on how well and deep you can analyze. I haven't looked so deep. Has traded 1.30-1.60 in recent times.

sls has talked about it somewhere here.
