For companies like Muthoot Finance, it is a runaway business now, he added. There is no risk for lender as the gold is now trading around USD 2000, he further said.
While welcoming the move, Bhasin said that the Federal Bank will be an “inordinate” beneficiary of this. He said that it is a largest lender in this segment, calling the Federal Bank stock a “Blind Buy”.
He further said that it is a myth created in some quarters that bank’s NRI Deposits would come down. The CASA ratio has been going up for the bank and its NPAs are also at a six year low, he added.
Bhasin has been bullish on Federal Bank and has been recommending the stock for channel viewers.
Among other important takeaways from the bi-monthly policy announcement, the Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) headed by Governor Shaktikanta Das also retained key policy rates.
