This table indicates that out of  recent public NCD issues of similar companies while 10% EHFL(AA rated) & 9% Mahindra Finance NCDs (AAA) have yielded good capital appreciation, that of other housing finance companies are quoting below their intrinsic value ( Issue price + Accrued Interest)

Assessment:
  • Post Demonetization, the  Housing Finance companies are in a state of flux and the issue is coming in these rather turbulent times. The Bonds are rated AAA, which ensure a high degree of safety.
  • Past NCD Public issue by were  a success and saw huge subscriptions. However based on present market prices commanded by these NCDs, such chances seem less.
  • Other non-banking finance companies that are likely to raise money in January 2017 include Muthoot Finance, Srei Equipment Finance, IL&FS Transportation.
  • Given the issue size reasonable  liquidity can be  expected.
  • The best interest options stands at 9.40% for 15 years on unsecured NCDs even as there is a call option after 10 years.
  • Suitable only for investors in zero or low tax bracket  & those willing to take some degree of risk
  • Apart from credit ratings, Valuation is also large;y determined by trust investors enjoy in  the group or company issuing the bond. A pointer in this case is that  Mahindar Finance even with average financials compared to Indiabull Housing Finance,  DHFL and same AAA rating  is commanding much better valuation in the market with its YTM standing at around 8.4% compared  to YTM above 9.2% for  DHFL, Indiabulls Housing Finance.
  • Except for benefiting from upfront brokerage, chances of making easy money in these type of NCD issues have gone down considerably as Bond yields which were earlier falling down continuously have shown signs of stabilization and even reversed to some extent.
  • In the past investors made a beeline for such NCD issues as with substantial upfront brokerage (1%)  and near par or above par listing large investors made some short term capital gains from these issues. These prospects are not very bright now, but a downward revision of Interest rates and stability in market post Demonetization could add some zing the NCD  prices at a later date.
  • Overall keeping in view the group (Reliance) involved and limited other investment options at this interest rate, small Investors looking for fixed income can take a small exposure to the NCD.
