Total loans expanded 22%, higher than the Brazilian central bank's mandated range of 10% to 15% through March. Nevertheless, credit growth could be slower on interest rate hikes and the central bank's monetary curbs.

Non-performing loans were flat quarter-on-quarter at 4.2% nevertheless, some deterioration was observed from smaller companies during the quarter.

The bank's return on equity stood at around 22.7%. The stock is trading at 11 times its estimated 2011 earnings with an upside potential of 33% in the next one year. Of the 12 analysts covering the stock, 10 rate it a buy, as per a Bloomberg consensus.
