What are Wall Street analysts saying about StoneCastle Financial stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about StoneCastle Financial 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. " (10/15/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " For 2Q18 StoneCastle earned NII/share of $0.40, two cents ahead of the dividend but a penny short of our estimate. We expect that NII will experience a material lift from the $1.7 million in deferred dividends owed to the company from Chicago Shore.
     There was notice of intent given during the quarter to redeem the previous and only non-accrual asset, Chicago Shore series A & B. The company has been invested in Chicago Shore since 2014 and in 2016 the preferred dividend was suspended. Subsequent to quarter-end the adviser exchanged the Chicago Shore preferred stock for variable rate preferred position in a vehicle set up by the company called First Marquis. BANX is expected to get a 13% rate from this.
     Additionally, when the securities are ultimately called the company can reinvest the proceeds into another investment that bears interest or pays a dividend in addition to the $1.7 million that will continue to be paid out.
     We agree with the move made by management to pay out the cash flows steadily to support earnings on a quarterly basis for years as opposed to receiving a one-time benefit which we believe will make future dividend increases more likely and further support a higher valuation on the stock.
     With over 98% of assets level 1 or 2, BANX receives active broker quotes from at least two sources on almost all of its portfolio. The stability of NAV and potential upside combined with transparency also means that shares should trade at a premium, not discount, to NAV/share, as we see it.
     We are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $1.66 from $1.63 and our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.74 from $1.66. We are maintaining our BUY rating and increasing our price target to $25 from $24 which reflects a 10% premium to our 4Q19 NAV/share estimate. " (8/13/2018)
