What are Wall Street analysts saying about Garrison Capital stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Garrison Capital stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Garrison Capital Inc. is an externally managed, closed-end, non-diversified management investment company. The Company's investment objective is to generate current income and capital appreciation by making investments primarily in debt securities and loans of the United States-based middle-market companies, which it defines as those having annual earnings before interest, taxes and depreciation, or EBITDA of certain amount. It invests or provides direct lending in first lien senior secured loans, second lien senior secured loans, one-stop senior secured loans or unitranche loans, subordinated or mezzanine loans, unsecured consumer loans and to a lesser extent, selected equity co-investments in middle-market companies. The Company intends to generate risk-adjusted net returns by assembling a portfolio of investments. The Company's investments include debt investments, preferred and minority equity investments (equity) of diversified companies and a portfolio of unsecured small balance consumer loans. " (10/10/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " Garrison earned adjusted NII/share of $0.27, a penny shy of the quarterly dividend and 3 cents below our estimate. The company is expected to resume earning its incentive fee in 4Q18 which would likely induce a dividend cut.
     However, given the extremely shareholder friendly actions taken by the company we expect the company to waive its incentive fee during the quarter and thereafter for increased balance sheet leverage to permit dividend coverage without waivers.
     At a 13.3% dividend yield and 27% discount to NAV/share, the market is pricing in a dividend reduction and further asset quality declines. We think that when the market is proven wrong about the dividend cut that it will be a major upward catalyst for the share price of GARS. Additionally, we expect that with many legacy, non-sponsor LMM investments now written off or repaid, the remaining UMM book has a far lower likelihood of going on non-accrual which bodes well for NAV stability going forward and should thus improve the NAV multiple that the stock trades at.
     After 9/30/18, GARS has the ability to refinance its MM CLO. We model the weighted average spread to be reduced by 99 bps during the quarter and for the CLO to be upsized by $140 million. Subsequent to 4Q18, we think the revolving note will pay down modestly in favor of more SBA debentures to keep regulatory leverage near or below Garrison’s reduced asset coverage target of 1.75x.
     We are revising our 2018 adjusted NII/share estimate to $1.15 from $1.14 and are maintaining 2019 adjusted NII/share estimate of $1.21. We maintaining our BUY rating and increasing our price target to $11 from $10." (8/13/2018)
  • 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "GARS reported 2Q18 EPS of $0.18 versus its dividend of $0.28, so NAV was down 0.9%, to $11.44. We are maintaining our 2018 dividend estimate of $1.12, representing a yield of 13.3%, covered by earnings in the remaining two quarters of 2018. Earnings should be helped by the 4Q18 refinancing of GARS’ CLO. As GARS has now resolved most of its legacy problem loans, we are now valuing it closer to peers that have not encountered difficulties. Our price target of $11 equates to 0.96x NAV, a discount to the 1.0x NAV level at which we believe well-performing BDCs should trade in the current environment." (8/9/2018)
