What are analysts saying about Apollo Investment Corp. stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Apollo Investment Corp. stock:

  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, "• AINV reported NII/share of $0.15 for fiscal 1Q18, a penny shy of our estimate but covering the dividend. The portfolio at fair value had decent growth of 4% Q/Q with the company originating $330 million in investments.
    • Non-accruals at amortized cost declined to $46.4 million or 1.9% of the portfolio from $183.1 million or 7.0% of the portfolio at amortized cost. We expect the company will have less non-accruals going forward and additionally will likely reduce concentration risk in the portfolio courtesy of co-investment being utilized more, in our opinion.
    • Apollo also has verticals largely uncorrelated to traditional middle market lending such as aviation leasing, asset-based lending (ABL), and life sciences. These specialties should generate good deal flow with pricing that is impacted less overall than middle market lending alone.
    • The market is likely to take a “show me” approach as Apollo continues to shift focus into what it seems are its core strategies. As a result of past NAV declines and dividend cuts, shares will be discounted until the company develops a track record of no or few non-accruals, leading to NAV stability and predictably high economic returns, in our opinion.
    • We are revising our fiscal 2018 NII/share estimate to $0.65 from $0.65 and are maintaining our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate of $0.66.
    " (8/9/2017)
