SBI Q2 profit jumps 67% as asset quality improves

by 5paisa Research Team 03/11/2021

State Bank of India (SBI) on Wednesday reported improvement in its asset quality and high earnings growth for the second quarter, powered by lower provisioning as expected by analysts.

India’s largest lender also said its net interest income (NII) rose in double digits while advances grew at a modest pace during the quarter through September.

SBI reported a net profit of Rs 7,627 crore, up 67% from Rs 4,574 crore in the second quarter of last year and an increase of 17% sequentially from Rs 6,504 crore in the preceding quarter ended June 30.

This is more or less in line with expectations even though some brokerage houses were estimating the net profit to rise by as much as 100%.

Net interest income grew 10.65% year-on-year and 12.83% compared with the first quarter to Rs 31,184 crore for the July-September period. The growth was over twice what analysts were anticipating.

The state-controlled lender’s share price shot up after it declared its results before moderating a bit and was trading at Rs 528.55 apiece, up 1.3% at 2.50 PM in a weak Mumbai market on Wednesday.

SBI Q2: Other highlights

1) Operating profit increased by 9.84% YoY to Rs 18,079 crore in Q2 from Rs 16,460 crore a year earlier.

2) Net NPA ratio at 1.52% was down 7 basis points YoY; Gross NPA ratio at 4.90% was down 38 bps YoY.

3) Total deposits grew 9.77% YoY; current account deposits grew 19.20% saving bank deposits grew 10.55%.

4) Domestic gross advances were up 6.17% but corporate loans remained weak with advances down 4%.

5) Retail loans grew 15.17% partly thanks to a 10.74% rise in home loans.

6) Credit cost for Q2 declined 51 basis points YoY to 0.43%.

7) Loan loss provision halved to Rs 2,699 crore during the quarter.

Do you want to get rich? Invest early!

Do you want to get rich? Invest early!
by 5paisa Research Team 03/11/2021

The power of compounding works like magic if you are invested for a longer time. 
At an early stage of life, individuals tend to have a higher risk appetite so even in case they lose their money they can earn it back and won’t affect their lives, as much as a middle-aged individual or retiree may get affected. When individuals embark on their working journey, they tend to splurge more towards fulfilling their desires of buying a new cell phone, car, or bike. During the initial years of their working life, the earning is less, which makes one believe that they have their whole life in front of them to invest and in this process, they often tend to procrastinate investing for later stages of life. However, the real benefit of investing is to start early. Even a small amount can work for you to achieve your required corpus due to the power of compounding. Compounding means interest-on-interest. In this case, interest is reinvested rather than paying it off, which helps your investment to grow at a faster pace. The power of compounding works like magic if you are invested for a longer time.

Benefits of early investing:

Safeguarding the future: Life is all about ups and downs. Every individual faces an emergency at some point in time, which can cause financial as well as mental stress. At such times, individuals can use their investment, which they had invested earlier as this won’t cause any financial tension.

Risk capacity: Young individuals have higher risk capacity as compared to those individuals, who are in mature stages of their life or nearing retirement. Young investors can bear losses as they have more time to recover those losses whereas, investors, who are nearing retirement or at a mature stage cannot bear losses as they don’t have time to recover the same. Investors with higher risk capacity can invest in high-risk instruments to receive optimum returns.

Retirement planning: One of the biggest pitfalls for retirement planning is starting investment late. When people start working, they think that retirement is too far and why should they invest in it now. This mentality makes people commit mistakes; hence, to achieve the expected retirement corpus, one should invest right from the time they start earning as this won’t create a burden in later stages of life.

Let’s look at an example:

Anjali begins her working life journey at the age of 21. She earns Rs 18,000 every month. She is well informed about the fact of early investing; so, she starts investing Rs 3,000 every month at the rate of 10% till her retirement. On the contrary, Rajeshwari, who also started her working career at the age of 21 and earns the same amount as Anjali every month, started investing Rs 3,000 every month from the age of 31 at the rate of 10% as she wasn’t aware of early investing benefits. Then, what will be the retirement corpus of both Anjali and Rajeshwari at the age of 60?

 
 

 

As we can see from the above calculation, 10 years can make a huge difference of Rs 1.11 crore. Anjali was able to make a great corpus because of early investing while Rajeshwari could not meet the same corpus amount as Anjali due to late investing.

Mahindra and Mahindra Financial on the verge of a trendline breakout!

Mahindra and Mahindra Financial on the verge of a trendline breakout!
by 5paisa Research Team 03/11/2021

Mahindra and Mahindra Financial is near its three-year down trendline. Is it on a verge of giving a breakout? Let’s find out.

Mahindra and Mahindra Financial made an all-time high in the month of April 2018. And ever since then, it is moving downwards forming lower highs and lower lows. In March 2020, it further exceeded its pace of fall and made a low of 76.1 in May 2020. Post this fall, as there was overall optimism in the market, even this stock started rising. However, in February 2021, it faced resistance on its three-year falling trendline. The stock faced further selling pressure leading it towards creating a higher low of 138 in August 2021. From here it again started to inch upwards and as of today, it is again trading near its three-year trendline that is heading downwards. Interestingly, this is near the crucial Fibonacci level of 50% (198 levels).

Moreover, the stock is presently trading above its 50-Day Exponential Moving Average (EMA). Its Relative Strength Index (RSI) is trading at 63.85 which is above its 20-Day EMA of 54.62 on weekly charts. Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) is in the positive territory and is trading above its signal line. MACD also had a positive crossover near the neutral line, supporting the up move.

The stock is currently trading above its Parabolic SAR. In fact, for the past nine weeks, it is trading above its Parabolic SAR. This too supports the recent up move. Speaking about Commodity Channel Index (CCI) it is presently trading below the 100 level at 93.06. This means, as per CCI and also RSI, the stock has not yet entered the overbought situation to witness selling pressure. On the contrary, the stock is presently trading near the upper band of the Bollinger band suggesting a pullback.

All in all, it is recommended that you should take investment decision after the stock breaches the downward sloping trendline on weekly charts. Till then we recommend you keep this stock on your radar and monitor. The day it breaks out from this trendline, the stock is likely to head for a trend reversal. However, even after the stock gives a breakout, it makes sense to validate the same in order to avoid false breakouts.
