What are Wall Street analysts saying about Apollo Investment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Apollo Investment stock:
  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, " For fiscal 2Q19, Apollo earned $0.15/share of NII, matching our estimate as well as the quarterly dividend. NAV/share was flat on the quarter with realized losses of $8.1 million partially offset by $3.9 million of realized gains.
     The portfolio at fair value declined by $170.7 million Q/Q, bringing D/E down to 0.70x from 0.80x. Notably, Apollo continues to recycle the portfolio away from non-core assets, which includes both oil & gas as well as shipping.
     At 9/30/18, oil & gas investments comprised 7.7% of the portfolio at cost and transportation comprised 7.0% of the portfolio at cost. In total, non-core assets comprised 22% of the portfolio at 9/30/18, which is still a very significant number.
     Furthermore, Merx Aviation comprised 20% of the portfolio at fair value. Apollo has certainly made strides in de-risking the book with 62% of investments since 7/1/16 being co-investments across the platform and an average borrower exposure of $15.7 million.
     However, given the significant concentration in cyclical industries that remains and the material concentration in Merx, we think that there is still a relatively high degree of risk in the portfolio.
     In our opinion, the market will likely discount the stock based upon this risk and the potential for the economy or any of these sectors to experience headwinds, which could put NAV under pressure.
     We do appreciate the strides AINV has made the past couple years, including cutting fees above 1.00x D/E as well as authorizing a new $50.0 million stock repurchase program. We just do not think the company is out of the woods yet, especially given lackluster operational performance in previous years.
     We are revising our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.59 from $0.60 and are maintaining our fiscal 2020 NII/share estimate of$0.64. We are maintaining our NEUTRAL rating and $6 price target." (11/1/2018)
