What are Wall Street analysts saying about Capital Southwest stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Capital Southwest stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Capital Southwest Corporation is a venture capital investment company whose objective is to achieve capital appreciation through long-term investments in businesses believed to have favorable growth potential. The Company's investments are focused on early-stage financings, expansion financings, management buyouts and recapitalizations in a broad range of industry segments. The portfolio is a composite of companies in which the Company has major interests as well as a number of developing companies and marketable securities of established publicly-owned companies. " (2/20/2020)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " CSWC posted core NII/share of $0.42 for the quarter, matching our estimate. The quarterly base dividend was bumped up a penny per share to $0.39/share from $0.38/share previously. As a reminder, the company is paying a $0.10/share supplemental dividend each quarter in addition to the base dividend. CSWC ended F2019 with UTI/share of $1.14, meaning that even if Media Recovery wasn’t monetized and there was no further UTI build through NII in excess of dividends that the company could pay the supplemental dividend for over 10 more quarters.
     As a reminder, Deepwater Corrosion Services was sold last quarter for a $1.7mm realized gain. Management is still targeting the sale of Media Recovery by the end of calendar 2019 and we model it to be sold at current marks during the 9/30/19 quarter with roughly half the proceeds being paid out the subsequent quarter and the remainder being used to further pad UTI for continued supplemental dividends.
     The only non-accrual, AG King Holdings, was written down slightly more on the quarter as was Premier Global and American Addiction. The latter two names are syndicated investments and in the case of American Addiction, EBITDA declined significantly enough to push up the weighted average portfolio attachment point to 4.80x from 3.80x Q/Q.
     We expect CSWC to have strong portfolio growth through F2020 and F2021. We think the ATM will be used sparingly and think management will ramp its balance sheet leverage significantly, boosting ROE and generating double-digit economic returns the next two fiscal years, by our estimates.
     We are revising our fiscal 2020 core NII/share estimate to $1.73 from $1.75 and are rolling out our fiscal 2021 core NII/share estimate of $1.84. We are maintaining our BUY rating and our $24 price target." (6/4/2019)
