HDFC Bank Limited, together with its subsidiaries, provides retail banking, wholesale banking, treasury, and other financial services to individual and business customers in India. HDFC Bank has a market cap of $30.4 billion and is part of the financial sector. The company has a P/E ratio of 31.6, above the S&P 500 P/E ratio of 17.7. Shares are up 47.7% year to date as of the close of trading on Tuesday. Currently there is 1 analyst that rates HDFC Bank a buy, no analysts rate it a sell, and none rate it a hold.

TheStreet Ratings rates HDFC Bank as a buy. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its robust revenue growth, notable return on equity, growth in earnings per share, increase in net income and solid stock price performance. We feel these strengths outweigh the fact that the company is trading at a premium valuation based on our review of its current price compared to such things as earnings and book value.
