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. " (4/16/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " Gladstone’s NAV/share decreased by 4.1% on the quarter to $7.98 from $8.32 after falling by 6.1% Q/Q the quarter prior. Francis was marked at 27% of cost last quarter and during the 12/31/18 quarter GLAD recognized a $26.9mm realized loss on Francis. With the chapter 11 restructuring, Gladstone’s $27.0mm of debt in Francis was rolled into $1.35mm of equity and the company also purchased an additional $5.0mm of equity in the new entity, “FES Resources.”
     The portfolio at fair value increased to $431.2mm from $390.1mm Q/Q as Gladstone had very robust originations of $59.2mm and only $8.9mm of repayments. During the quarter the company issued $57.5mm of 2023 notes and has the ability to go above 1.00x D/E. We expect the company to exceed 1.00x in F3Q20 although thus far the company has not decided to reduce fees on incrementally higher leverage and thus the benefit to shareholders from this increase is likely to be muted as fees increase with the augmented balance sheet.
     The market has, in our opinion, surprisingly shrugged off substantial NAV declines and continued to award GLAD shares a 12% premium to 12/31/18 NAV (as of 2/8/19). Despite the dividend being earned on a NII basis we do not expect NII/share to have growth levers.
     Additionally, while GLAD wrapped up 12/31/18 with no non-accruals after the restructuring of Francis, we think there is heightened risk that the largely non-sponsor LMM portfolio experiences further stress going forward. Accordingly, we continue to think shares warrant a discount to forward NAV estimates. We note that our target price of $7 represents an 11% discount to our F4Q20 NAV/share estimate of $7.83, which is only a decrease of 1.9% from F1Q19 levels.
     We are maintaining our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate of $0.84 and revising our fiscal 2020 NII/share estimate to $0.86 from $0.84. " (2/11/2019)
