Premier bank in India. Going forward, we're going to see a fair amount of pain. With loan losses and low interest rates, bank profits will be under increasing pressure. Not a buyer of banks at this point. In a better environment, he thinks highly of this one.

Has an ADR? Yes. India is facing economic issues as it grows under its PM, now in his second term. HDFC is well-positioned, suffering lower loan losses than other banks like ICICI. You want to invest in India which has a huge, growing middle class.

For a 10-year hold. It's a premier private bank in India. They've done very well, though they just had a big drop. The Indian currency is at a discount. A good place to be if you are interested in emerging markets. Right now, he isn't buying emerging market banks, but if you are, it wouldn't be a bad choice.

The proxy for India. India's GDP is growing at 6%, so double that of the US. HDFC's revenues, loan deposits, and loan books continue to grow at 15-20% per year. Steeper yield curve in India, plus moving from agricultural to urban society, and HDFC will benefit. Yield is 0.53%.

This is an Indian bank. It is one of the most expensive banks you will find. He doesn’t own the bank, but he does own HDFC Finance. All of the HDFC family of companies are extremely well run and priced at a premium. When you buy them, you have to take a long term approach because of their premium price. You are buying the growth in their earnings.

An Indian stock for a long-term hold? You can do this through the banking side through an HDFC Bank (HDB-N) or through ICICI Bank (IBN-N). Those 2 are the best ones. Their share prices have had a huge run this year, much like the emerging markets. It has also helped that the Indian government has enacted a GST.

A very large bank in India, and they steered clear of all of the nonperforming loan issues. However, because of that, it has very much outperformed ICICI and some of the state banks in India. It is now trading at around 20X earnings. Management is very disciplined and very focused on ROE and risk management.

Prefers this over ICICI Bank, primarily because of the type of loan book that they have. They have a little less exposure to the big corporate loan sector, which is going through a little bit of a workout in India right now. This bank trades at a premium. She is focused on quality growth, and is willing to pay a little bit more for it.

Housing development financing – mortgages and a great play in rising middle class incomes. India was raising interest rates and reserve requirement since 2010 and as a result Indian stock market was down 25%. Now this one is recovering as they cut reserve requirements. They will be a major beneficiary of rising middle class incomes.
