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. " (5/15/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "• For 1Q18, GARS earned NII/share of $0.31, a penny shy of our estimate but two cents above consensus. Fee income was bolstered by the prepayment of oil & gas investments. We think a resumption of the incentive fee being earned in 3Q18 will induce a dividend cut to $0.24/share from $0.28/share currently, although the earnings outlook through 2019 is positive.
    • In late March, Garrison’s Board approved the increased leverage available to BDCs. With regulatory D/E finishing 3/31/18 at 0.96x, this will certainly be very beneficial to GARS. The company will also seek shareholder approval sooner to expedite when the increased leverage is available, although we do not model the increased leverage being available until March 2019 to be conservative. The benefit of receiving the approval earlier, aside from breathing room, would be to upsize the CLO concomitant with refinancing it after the non-call period ends in September.
    • On the earnings call, management noted that they will reduce the management fees as the increased leverage permits more balance sheet growth. While a hard number was not provided on the call, we applaud management for ensuring that the benefits from the increased leverage flow to shareholders. We expect the base fee to be cut by 25 bps in 1Q19.
    • Garrison has the benefit of having spent the past couple of years focused on UMM, sponsor-backed investments. Not only does this portend to a more stable NAV going forward, but we also think this fits well into the increased leverage available. Garrison will not be changing what it is generally already putting on its balance sheet with the leverage increase like some its peers and we thus expect that the transition into higher leverage next year will be relatively seamless.
    • Non-accruals at cost increased to $9.2 million of 2.3% of the portfolio from $5.0 million or 1.3% of the portfolio Q/Q. Previous non-accrual Rooster Energy was restructured and ProFusion industries was added to non-accrual status.
    • We are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $1.14 from $1.11 and our 2019 adjusted NII/share estimate to $1.21 from $1.03. " (5/14/2018)
  • 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "GARS reported 4Q17 EPS of $0.23 (including $0.03 of non-recurring expenses) versus its dividend of $0.28, so NAV was stable (down 0.4%, to $11.69). We are maintaining our 2018 dividend estimate of $1.12, covered by earnings. 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 0.94x NAV, a modest discount to the 1.0x NAV level at which we believe well-performing BDCs should trade in the current environment." (3/9/2018)
