The bank reported a big growth surprise but going forward net interest margin (NIM) trajectory will be the key. HDFC Bank reported a big 8.4 per cent QoQ growth.
Retail growth was in-line at 5 per cent on a QoQ basis. CASA momentum (+10% QoQ) remained strong, and the focus will now shift to see how its NIM trajectory pans out in near future.
Devyani International: Outperform| Target Rs 202
CLSA maintained an outperform rating on Devyani International with a target price of Rs 202 that translates into an upside of over 16 per cent from Rs 173 recorded on 1 April.
The management reiterated its stance on network expansion. The company has effective price hikes for both pizza hut and KFC. It continues to see 4X Ebitda growth over FY21-24, said the note.
Asian Paints: Neutral| Target Rs 3615
Citi maintained its neutral stance on Asian Paints with a target price of Rs 3615 which translates into an upside of over 16 per cent from Rs 3114 recorded on 1 April.
The company is strengthening its presence in the Home Décor segment which is positive. The operating environment remains volatile, particularly given the backdrop of inflationary headwinds.
The global investment bank expects additional pricing action (over & above 20%+ already taken) may be necessitated to offset the impact, said the note.

Goldman Sachs maintained a buy rating on KPIT Technologies with a target price of Rs 840 which translates into an upside of over 38 per cent from Rs 608 reported on 1 April.
