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, " AINV posted NII/share of $0.15 for fiscal 1Q19, in-line with consensus but a penny shy of our estimate. We expect revenue to grow more robustly in fiscal 2Q19 as we suspect many of the $359 million of deployments during the quarter closed late in the quarter and thus the company likely did not realize a full quarter of investment income pertaining to additions during the quarter.
     Total originations excluding Merx and revolver activity were $200 million. Of the origination volume 73% was in seven new portfolio companies while 27% was invested in nine existing companies, demonstrating that Apollo is finding new portfolio companies in a challenging environment and before its reduced asset coverage is set to take effect (April 2019).
     While the reduced asset coverage will likely lead to increased NII/share, we note that shareholders will receive some but not all of the benefit from the reduced asset coverage. AINV is lowering its base fee to 100 bps on assets purchased with D/E greater than 1.00x. This will allow fees to scale down with increased use of leverage a decent amount but we would have preferred an outright based fee cut to 100 bps.
     There were no new non-accruals during the quarter as they remained flat at $75.7 million at cost or 3.0% of the portfolio. However, American Tire was exited at $12.5 million realized loss after losing two major suppliers. Additionally, Merx closed the quarter at 21% of the portfolio at fair value and oil & gas investments comprised 8.2% of the portfolio. We think this heavy concentration will and cyclicality in the portfolio will keep valuation muted.
     We are revising our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.60 from $0.61 and our fiscal 2020 NII/share estimate to $0.64 from $0.66 and maintaining our NEUTRAL rating and $6 price target." (8/15/2018)

The Company's investment portfolio will be principally in middle-market private companies. " (8/10/2018)
