What are Wall Street analysts saying about Gladstone Capital stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Gladstone Capital stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Gladstone Capital Corporation is a specialty finance company that invests in debt securities consisting primarily of senior term loans, senior subordinated loans, and junior subordinated loans in small and medium sized companies. The Company target small and medium sized private businesses that meet some or all of our criteria, including the potential for growth, adequate assets for loan collateral, experienced management teams with significant ownership interest in the business, adequate capitalization, profitable operations based on cash flow, substantial ownership by a buyout fund or a venture capital fund and potential opportunities for us to realize appreciation and gain liquidity in our equity position. " (7/4/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "• For fiscal 2Q18, GLAD posted NII/share of $0.21, covering the dividend but a penny shy of our estimate. The company had modest portfolio growth of 1.5% by cost Q/Q and we expect measured growth through fiscal 2018 and 2019.
    • Gladstone’s Board approved the reduction in asset coverage permitted for BDCs now and we expect that this will serve to slightly lower ATM issuance and increase overall leverage, with a modestly positive impact on earnings in fiscal 2019 stemming from increased ROE.
    • While the company will likely run a more first lien-focused portfolio, it remains to be seen what types of yields the company will be putting on-balance sheet and what D/E level the company will prefer to stay below. We note that we still don’t expect GLAD to approach 1.00x D/E at least through fiscal 2019.
    • GLAD had no further non-accruals on the quarter, with the only two non-accruals remaining Alloy Die Casting and Sunshine Media. These have been the only two non-accruals since the 9/30/16 quarter.
    • Oil & gas investments totaled $68.1 million or 14.9% of the portfolio at cost as of 3/31/18. Oil prices have been strong and buoyed some optimism in the industry, but we think this is a large concentration for Gladstone and the risk is likely amplified by the fact that these are LMM (lower middle market) sized companies and the performance of these companies is more likely to be meaningfully more volatile during times of unfavorable market dynamics.
    • We are revising our fiscal 2018 NII/share estimate to $0.85 from $0.86 and our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.89 from $0.87. Our $8 price target represents a 7% discount to our F2019 NAV/share estimate of $8.60 which we believe is fair given the LMM focus of Gladstone and cyclicality of the portfolio." (5/7/2018)
