What are Wall Street analysts saying about Garrison Capital stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Garrison Capital stock:
  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ GARS earned adjusted NII/share of $0.20 for 1Q19, a penny short of our estimate but also short of the $0.23/share quarterly dividend. Given what we expect will be continued pressure on asset quality and marks, we think this will further constrain portfolio growth and thus NII.
    ▪ Garrison’s previous non-accrual, Profusion, was restructured at prior quarter marks (25% of cost) but Emtec and Confluence were added. This served to bring non-accruals at cost up to $17.0mm or 3.5% of the portfolio from $9.2m or 2.0% of the portfolio the prior quarter.
    ▪ Non-accruals in total are marked at 80% of cost, which we find to be generous, and we expect further write-downs on these assets as well. Cochon was marked down further to 41% of cost from 44% of cost Q/Q and we cannot fathom how an asset marked at 41% of cost can stay on accrual status. We think there are other shoes to drop.
    ▪ GARS has a regulatory D/E target of 1.75x and ended 1Q19 at 1.70x. We think negative marks will push NAV/share down to $9.75 in 4Q19 from $10.44 in 1Q19 and as a result constrain portfolio growth, with D/E already redlining. This really puts GARS against the wall, as we see it, and we do not expect NII to cover the dividend.
    ▪ GARS would rather undertake low-yielding BSL and club deals instead of repurchasing shares which is not prudent capital management and is not in the best interest of shareholders, as we see it, with the latter providing superior ROIC.
    ▪ We are revising our 2019 adjusted NII/share estimate to $0.86 from $0.89 and our 2020 adjusted NII/share estimate to $0.87 from $0.96." (5/14/2019)
