Shriram Transport Finance Complay Ltd (STFC) - RBI Policy Update

RBI's monetary policy announced on May 3rd had created a lot of confusion on whether STFC's securitized assets would continue to be treated as priority sector loans. (Read the probable impact of it here)

On RBI's policy statement on July 1, 2011, it has clarified that investments made by banks in securitized assets that are originated by banks or other eligible financial institutions shall continue to be classified as priority sector.

This means that any bank's investments in securitized assets will be eligible  for classification under priority sector  only if it was eligible to be classified as priority sector advances before their securitization.

So, for STFC, this is good news, as their cost of borrowing is unlikely to go up.

However, the underlying concern of slowing of growth is still there. So, although the stock may not go below 600, it may be difficult for it to gallop away beyond the 720-750 range in the near future.
