The Muthoot finance dividend will be paid to shareholders whose names are listed as of April 26, 2022, at the close of business, both as Beneficial Owners on the list that the Depositories will provide for shares held electronically and as Members in the Company’s Register of Members for shares held physically.
On the opening trades on NSE Muthoot Finance, the stock decreased by 15%. One of the most disappointing results was a 17.4% decline in net profit due to difficulties in its primary gold lending business. It was due to teaser loans that the company’s yields were low throughout the quarter.
Despite a weak Q1, management maintained its 10-15% AUM growth estimate for FY23. After the results were announced, management stated that it expects AUM for gold loans to grow over the next few quarters. Additionally, this goal loan provider announced that the Reserve Bank of India had approved 150 new branches to open by October, which is anticipated to help the expansion of gold AUM.
The Cautions Approach of Traders and Analysts
Analysts are cautious about the company’s near-term success. Kotak Institutional Equities analysts predict Muthoot’s earnings will continue to be under pressure for another quarter. As a result of the teaser scheme’s termination, the domestic brokerage business will monitor gold loan expansion. The concern is whether the company will be able to retain the customers if the advertised rates are removed.
The analysts at Nirmal Bang Institutional Equities believe the annual growth is likely below the management’s guidance, even though sequential growth rates will be favourable in the remaining quarters of FY23. According to a report, the essential factor in determining the company’s growth trajectory for gold loans will be net new client acquisition.
On the plus side, factors supporting the company’s expansion include the rise in domestic gold prices and the opening of additional branches. However, their advantages would not be felt right away. Muthoot Finance share rate has slumped which has left some impact on the traders and analysts alike.
