After going through the difficult period of 2008-2012, the Vietnamese banking system has come back strong since 2013, supported by a gradually improving economic environment and the recovery of the real estate market especially. Over the last 4 years from 2013 to 2017, credit outstanding balance has been increasing at the CAGR of 17.2%, of which personal loans grew by 40.8% annually as calculated by StoxPlus. Consumer finance companies also experienced a strong growth of loan book at an annual average rate of 66.5% over the same period and are now considered as "counterweights" to the traditional banking model.
These days the banking industry is reaping impressive results. There used to be only 9 listed banks with total market capitalization of USD11.8 billion in 2013. Now, 15 banks are listed on the two stock exchanges, with total capitalization of USD40 billion, accounting for 21.5% of total market capitalization. Stock price of banking sector increased by 73.2% in 2017 and recently rose by 40% in the first quarter of 2018, while the VN-Index was at 48% and 19.3% respectively.
By 30th March 2018, the banks’ stocks are trading at 3.2x its Book Value (P/BV) and 20.3x its trailing earnings (P/E). Recent years have also witnessed a number of M&A transactions between foreign partners and consumer finance companies, where they and their licenses are priced by very impressive valuation multiples.
In the upcoming months, market players and the investor community are looking forward to a series of listing by banks and consumer finance companies, namely Techcombank (TCB), Tien Phong Bank (TPB), Oriental Commercial Bank (OCB), and FE Credit, etc. Some of them have just had soaring share prices on the OTC market.
In this context, key questions are raised for 2018 and the years to come:
1. What are the important trends of Vietnam's banking industry and finance companies?
2. What will macroeconomic or monetary policies be, and which will affect the banking system in general and the stock market in particular?
3. What are the upside opportunities and risks when having exposure in banking stocks, and more importantly, what to watch out for while considering the banks whose shares are about to be floated?
