What are analysts saying about Capitala Finance Corp. stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Capitala Finance Corp. stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Capitala Finance Corp. is a business development company. The company invests primarily in traditional mezzanine, senior subordinated and unitranche debt, senior and second-lien loans and equity securities. Capitala Finance Corp. is headquartered in Charlotte, United States. " (10/10/2017)
- 2. FBR & Co analysts commented, "Following 4Q16 results, we are lowering our 2018 EPS estimates and maintaining our $14 price target and Market Perform rating. CPTA reported 4Q16 EPS of $0.43, above both our and consensus estimate of $0.39. The difference was largely related to increased PIK income since last quarter. 4Q16 net investment income decreased from last quarter, reflecting in part re-categorizing Sierra Hamilton as nonaccrual. This is despite debt investment yields increasing to 13.2% (vs. 12.7% in 3Q16) as CPTA continues to focus on investing across the capital structure of lower middle-market companies (defined as EBITDA of $10M–$30M). CPTA’s operating expenses also declined with revenues QOQ, as did management’s fee waiver. We expect the fee waiver will be gone in 1Q17, particularly given the quarterly dividend has decreased to $0.39 per share from $0.47. Asset quality was mixed in 4Q16, with realized gains and unrealized appreciation boosting NAV/share QOQ but nonaccruals also increasing. Nevertheless, we believe CPTA’s asset quality trends are improving overall." (3/10/2017)
- 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "CPTA reported 4Q16 NOI per share of $0.43, $0.04 ahead of our forecast and the Street's. After generating substantial liquidity in 3Q16, CPTA deployed over nearly $67M in the quarter into attractive yielding investments, driving up the consolidated portfolio yield and driving the EPS upside. Credit appears relatively stable with one inflow to non-accrual. We view the quarterly results favorably and recommend CPTA." (3/8/2017)

Consensus Ratings for Capitala Finance Corp. (NASDAQ:CPTA) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
