INDIAN BANK BSE Code: 532814 Volume: 34568 CMP: Rs 288.25
The Indian Bank is aiming to grow its business at a CAGR of 25 per cent in the coming years. It plans to expand its presence outside south India by opening more branches. The bank’s focus is on increasing its CASA deposits as the final cost of deposits will determine the final rate a bank would charge on its credit portfolio. The Indian Bank intends to concentrate on lending to the agricultural sector and to medium and small enterprises (MSME). It has also decided to increase its exposure towards lending in sectors like retail, education, infrastructure and housing. The bank has booked growth at a CAGR of 24 per cent in the last 4 years while its total business has risen by 25 per cent to Rs 167,980 crore at the end of September 2010. The Indian Bank is determined to maintain this momentum. The stock can be looked at for gains with a short to medium term perspective.
