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. " (5/21/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "• For fiscal 4Q18, AINV earned NII/share of $0.15, a penny shy of our estimate but covering the quarterly dividend. Investment income was down Q/Q largely as a result of a smaller portfolio, the addition of Sprint Industrial to non-accrual, and lower prepayment fees.
    • In April, Apollo’s Board approved an increase in regulatory leverage from 1.00x D/E to 2.00x D/E. The company will also be permanently reducing the base fee to 150 bps from 200 bps although the advisor was waiving 50 bps of the fee previously and thus we don’t expect any impact from this aside from a good gesture. However, when D/E exceeds 1.00x Apollo will lower the base fee to 100 bps. Beginning 4/1/18, a rolling three-year lookback feature is beginning for the incentive fee.
    • The company is certainly doing the right thing with fees, especially as it pertains to increased leverage. On the earnings call, management stated that they will target D/E of between 1.25x – 1.40x. In terms of what investments will likely be on-balance sheet with increased leverage available, the company guided towards L+500 – L+700 loans with leverage of 4.0-5.0x.
    • The increasing utilization of co-investment, particularly with MidCap, bodes well for the ability of AINV to have adequate sourcing of more lower yielding, senior secured loans.
    • James Zelter, CEO, is stepping down from his position. Mr. Zelter will remain a director of the company. Howard Widra is taking the helm as CEO. Mr. Widra was a cofounder of MidCap and has been President of AINV since June 2016.
    • AINV’s non-accruals at amortized cost increased to $75.7 million of 3.3% of the portfolio from $57.9 million or 2.4% of the portfolio Q/Q. Apollo had one new loan placed on non-accrual status during the quarter with a cost of $18.1 million.
    • We are revising our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.61 from $0.66 and are rolling out our fiscal 2020 NII/share estimate of $0.66. We think Apollo’s D/E will remain under 0.90x through fiscal 2020 and we think that the benefits of the scaled base fee reduction with increased leverage are considerably further down the road and that the non-sponsor portion of the portfolio remaining (19%) will be reflected in a modest NAV/share discount. " (5/21/2018)
