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. " (3/11/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ Garrison posted adjusted NII/share of $0.20 versus our estimate (and the quarterly dividend) of $0.23. We note that the CLO was issued early in the quarter while most of the loans closed in December. Thus, we expect more of a pull through from interest income in 1Q19 from the robust originations of $113.0mm during the quarter.
    ▪ Garrison had unrealized depreciation from wider spreads of about $5.4mm pertaining to the syndicated loan portfolio. In addition to the technical marks, Profusion was written down by $451K Q/Q, Confluence Outdoor by $1.5mm, and Cochon MWS (f.ka. Rooster Energy) by $671K.
    ▪ We think that roughly half of the technical depreciation has likely been regained QTD as loan prices have rallied thus far in 2019. Cochon was also likely written down due to oil prices declining materially during 4Q18 but thus far in the 3/31/19 quarter they have recovered partially. Profusion, the only non-accrual, was exited at 12/31/18 marks during 1Q19. Confluence outdoor remains a legacy investment that we think has a risk of falling further.
    ▪ GARS’ regulatory D/E finished 2018 at 1.49x, up from 1.04x Q/Q. We think the company will deployed the remaining $42.0mm from the CLO revolving note and $10.0mm of SBA debentures through the next two years to generate steady but measured portfolio growth.
    ▪ We are revising our 2019 adjusted NII/share estimate to $0.89 from $1.04 and are rolling out our 2020 adjusted NII/share estimate of $0.96." (3/11/2019)
  • 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)
