What are 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. " (5/9/2017)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "• For fiscal 2Q17, GLAD posted NII/share of $0.21, in-line with both our own estimate and consensus estimates. We note, however, that this was the result of $0.06/share worth of fee waivers. We’d prefer to see the company cover the dividend absent fee waivers in the future.
    • D/E finished 3/31/17 at 0.53x, well under leverage the company has operated at in the past although we suspect that given the aging of the credit cycle the company will try not to exceed 0.80x. The low leverage combined with a stock well above NAV/share should permit robust portfolio growth for Gladstone in both fiscal 2017 and fiscal 2018.
    • NAV/share decreased very slightly Q/Q to $8.33 from $8.36 largely driven by unrealized depreciation likely pertaining to the new non-accrual which was marked with an unrealized loss of $2.2 million. We expect NAV/share to finish fiscal 2017 at $8.27 and fiscal 2018 at $8.30.
    • We are revising our fiscal 2017 NII/share estimate to $0.84 from $0.86 and our fiscal 2018 NII/share estimate to $0.86 from $0.88." (5/8/2017)
