What are Wall Street analysts saying about Apollo Investment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Apollo Investment stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Apollo Investment Corporation is a closed-end investment company that has elected to be treated as a business development company under the Investment Company Act of 1940. The Company's investment portfolio will be principally in middle-market private companies. " (3/21/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " Please note all per share figures incorporate the 1 for 3 reverse split that occurred in November 2018. AINV posted NII/share of $0.45 for F3Q19, a penny ahead of our estimate and matching the quarterly dividend.
     Apollo had a strong quarter of originations with $305.3mm versus sales of $16.3mm and repayments of $274.4mm, resulting in net portfolio growth of $14.6mm. The sales included partial paydowns of oil & gas investments as well as structured credit.
     NAV/share declined by 1.9% Q/Q to $19.03 largely as a result of spread widening and oil and gas investments. The price of a barrel of WTI declined from around $70 to $45 during the quarter for a decline of 36%. Despite this, aggregate oil and gas portfolio companies were marked from a FV/Cost of 88% to 79%. We think this is quite generous.
     Additionally, AINV had a new non-accrual investment during the quarter, Crowne Automotive. Crowne had a cost of $16.1mm and was marked at 60% of cost. This brings total non-accruals to $79.8mm or 3.4% of the book at amortized cost compared with $75.7mm or 3.2% of the portfolio Q/Q (Elements Behavioral Health was exited).
     Gary Rothchild of Merx Aviation become an Apollo employee. Merx has sourced additional servicing fee income investments for Apollo and we expect this to continue and assist in diversifying aviation assets for AINV. As a reminder, Merx finished F3Q19 with a cost of $417.2mm or 18% of the portfolio. This is a significant concentration in a single entity, no matter how successful it is although growth in Midcap assets should reduce this over time.
     We are revising our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.79 from $1.77 and are our fiscal 2020 NII/share estimate to $1.84 from $1.92. We are maintaining our NEUTRAL rating and $18 price target." (2/8/2019)
