State Bank of India (SBI) recently reported mixed results for the quarter, demonstrating improved net interest income (NII) and loan growth. However, the core pre-provision operating profit (PPoP) was impacted by wage revisions. This was balanced by lower provisions and write-backs, showing resilience in the bank's financial performance.

The strength in unsecured loans is backed by a strong client base, with 82% of the clientele coming from the armed forces or government. The retail and small and medium enterprises (SME) sectors are expected to be key drivers for the projected 12-14% loan growth for the fiscal year 2024 (FY24).

SBI has shown superior net interest margin (NIM) performance, with a minor domestic NIM decline counterbalanced by a better loan-to-deposit ratio (LDR), currently standing at 71.3%. This indicates that SBI's lending operations are effectively funded by its deposit base.

Looking ahead, SBI has set targets for its capital adequacy ratio (CAR) and Common Equity Tier 1 (CET-1) at 15% and 11% respectively by FY24. The bank plans to achieve this through a September 2025 accrual basis valuation (ABV) roll forward via profit plough back.

In response to these developments, Prabhudas Lilladher, a leading brokerage firm, maintains a 'BUY' rating for SBI at Rs. 770. The rating suggests confidence in SBI's ability to navigate the current financial landscape and deliver on its growth targets.
