What will unlock value? Considering that >|5O% of HMBs loan book is extended to the textile sector, the bank’s profitability is greatly entwined with textile sector performance, particularly textile exports. In this regard, AKD Securities highlights that 1) Jul11 exports have increased by 28%YoY where Pakistan’s low value-added exports tend to be resistant to global economic slowdowns and 2) cotton prices appear to have stabilized and are up 33% since their recent trough. In AKD Securities’ view, continuation of recent trends may unlock price performance potential for RMB. While asset quality concerns remain (7%QoQ NFL accretion in 1QCY11/below-average coverage at 71%), AKD Securities expects HMB will post a CY10-CY15F PAT CAGR of 15% even if credit costs average a high 1.8% (vs. 1.3% across previous five years). AKD Securities’ target price of PkR20/share offers upside of 15.75%.
