What are analysts saying about StoneCastle Financial Corp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about StoneCastle Financial Corp stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "StoneCastle Financial Corp. is a closed-end investment company. It invests in community banks located throughout the United States. The Company's primary investment objective is to provide stockholders with current income, and to a lesser extent, capital appreciation, through preferred equity, subordinated debt and common equity investments predominantly in U.S. domiciled community banks. StoneCastle Financial Corp. is based in United States. " (7/11/2017)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "• Apparently, Kroll sees the same thing that we do in StoneCastle – a very strong portfolio with stable underlying credits. The company, rightfully so in our opinion, received the investment grade rating of A+ by Kroll, which is a rating agency specializing in financial services companies.
    • In addition to the investment grade rating, BANX amended its revolving credit facility, which as a reminder is the company’s sole source of funding. The company previously paid L + 285 bps on the facility which has now been lowered to L + 235 bps with no commitment fees. The capacity on the facility was lowered from $70.0 million to $62.0 million, reflecting the current leverage limitations given the assets of the company. What was previously a facility by a syndicate group of lenders is now done solely through Texas Capital Bank. There was previously a requirement for BANX to keep $3.5 million of cash as a liquidity enhancement which is now no longer required, freeing up more cash to be invested and grow earnings.
    • We expect StoneCastle to trade above NAV and permit an accretive equity raise in 4Q17 and subsequent to this we model an expansion of the facility. BANX has already spoken with the lender that if they were to do a secondary equity offering they would be able to upsize the facility.
    • We are revising our 2017 NII/share estimate from $1.59 to $1.61 and our 2018 NII/share estimate from $1.67 to $1.71. " (6/12/2017)
