Motilal Oswal’s research report on Muthoot Finance
Key highlights from our channel checks in Southern India for gold loan NBFCs in general and MUTH in particular are: a) teaser rates have not gone away – just that the 6.9% teaser rate has been replaced by 9.9%-11.9% teaser rates, b) banks and gold loan fintechs (despite the recent media coverage on Rupeek) have still not reduced their aggression, c) gold loan demand was weak in May’22 and redemptions were high because of the wedding season; but the demand has swiftly recovered in the first ten days of Jun’22 and gives hope to salvage the quarter, d) MUTH is re-pricing its teaser rate gold loans disbursed at 6.9% p.a. between Dec’21 and Mar’22 to higher interest rates of 9.9%-11.9%, which can have multiple implications with the most obvious being the potential for increase in the portfolio yields of the gold loan book.
We delve deeper into each of these and also highlight a few questions that still remain unanswered. Our estimates are largely unchanged and we maintain our BUY rating on MUTH with a TP of INR1,220 (based on 2.0x FY24E P/BV).
