HDB the new billion dollar baby? :

Investors are punting that the next multi-billion dollar baby from the HDFC stable is born – HDB Financial Services, the non-banking finance subsidiary of HDFC BankBSE -0.16 %, the nation’s most valuable lender. It may soon head to Dalal Street where many average investors have turned millionaires by investing in Housing Development Finance.

HDB Financial, the company that gives out personal loans, car loans and does recovery services, is being traded in  private deals at anywhere between Rs. 500 to Rs. 550 apiece, valuing it around Rs. 45,000 crores. That is almost a triple of where it was trading six months ago. It is the sixth most valuable NBFC in the roll of honour.

“This is now the largest unlisted NBFC with a market capitalization of Rs 45,000 crore,” says Nitin Rao, Founder of alphaideas.com, which tracks shares in the unlisted space.
