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. " (10/9/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "For fiscal 3Q18 Gladstone posted NII/share of $0.22, a penny above our estimate as well as the quarterly dividend. The portfolio at cost increased by $6.7 million Q/Q as the increase in repayments offset a generally flat origination volume on the quarter.
    We continue to expect GLAD to utilize its increased available leverage that received Board approval but we do not expect leverage to surpass 0.80x through fiscal 2019 at least. D/E finished 6/30/18 at 0.69x and we think that a Y/Y uptick will serve to partially offset what should be steady origination volume Y/Y, as we see it.
    While there is the potential for increased earnings post-fiscal 2019 as leverage helps boost ROE, GLAD shareholders will not reap the lion’s share of benefits from increased available balance sheet leverage as the 175 bps base fee is not being lowered. Thus, even with increased portfolio growth driven by more leverage it will be difficult for this to not be eclipsed by higher fees that are charged as a percentage of gross assets.
    Previous non-accrual Alloy Die Casting was placed back on accrual status during the quarter. The company had a cost of $7.9 million with fair value increasing to $5.4 million from $4.3 million during the quarter.
    The positive outcome from Alloy Die helped drive the 2.8% quarterly increase in NAV/share to $8.86 from $8.62. Management noted on the call that they expect oil and gas exposure to be reduced from a likely repayment of one of the investments. Any reduction in cyclicality in the portfolio would likely be a positive for valuation.
    Our $8 price target represents a 9% discount to our F4Q19 NAV/share estimate which we think is generally in-line with where the sector will likely trade a lower middle market lender especially this late in the credit cycle, in our opinion. We are maintaining our 2018 NII/share estimate of $0.86 and revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.88 from $0.89." (8/6/2018)
