When Repco Home Finance’s December quarter financial results came out, it disappointed the market on most parameters. However, despite this, some brokerages are still recommending this bet as they believe that the business of this firm can pick up and it can see faster growth in its asset quality and loan book in the coming times.
Apart from this, the brokerage is also considering the appointment of K Swaminathan as the new MD and CEO of the firm and K Lakshmi as the CFO. Due to all these reasons, many brokerages have expressed the possibility of 30 to 135 per cent rise in its shares in the next one year.
ICICI Securities said in a note that the stock is undervalued and has given a new target price of Rs 563 for the stock.
