What are Wall Street analysts saying about Golub Capital BDC stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Golub Capital BDC stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Golub Capital BDC Inc. is a business development company that principally invests in senior secured, unitranche, mezzanine and second lien loans of middle-market companies that are, in most cases, sponsored by private equity investors. The Company's investment activities are managed by its investment adviser, GC Advisors LLC, an affiliate of Golub Capital. " (10/10/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " For fiscal 3Q18 Golub earned core NII/share of $0.32, matching both our estimate and the quarterly dividend. We expect that earnings will be generally flat through fiscal 2019 as the company remains very disciplined in its approach to credit and funding costs are not low enough for current and expected yields on investments to improve NII/share meaningfully, as we see it.
     The SLF shrunk again as the opportunity set for loans that typically go in the SLF was lackluster, even with a backup in yields and better terms in the BSL market. We tend to think the SLF will only experience any meaningful and sustained growth if there is credit market dislocation. Barring that, we do not foresee any scenario where management allocates any significant amount of capital to the SLF.
     While the company has not yet gotten approval nor confirmed their intent to seek approval for reduced asset coverage, we think Golub would be one of the biggest beneficiaries increased balance sheet leverage given the safety of the portfolio and UMM focus. The loans Golub makes during the regular course of business are what many BDCs claim they want to invest in with higher available balance sheet leverage. The reduced asset coverage could make it feasible for Golub to simply bring the SLF loans on-balance sheet. However, for now we don’t think Golub will reduce asset coverage.
     GBDC’s NAV/share increased to $16.15 from $16.11 the quarter prior and we project it will close fiscal 2018 at $16.20 and fiscal 2019 at $16.37 for economic returns of 9.2% and 9.0%, respectively.
     We are maintaining both our fiscal 2018 core NII/share estimate of $1.29 and our fiscal 2019 core NII/share estimate of $1.29 and maintaining our BUY rating and $21 price target." (8/13/2018)
