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. " (12/13/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " Gladstone’s NAV/share declined by 6.1% Q/Q to $8.32 from $8.86 as a result of Francis Drilling being placed on non-accrual status effective 7/1/18. The company marked down both of its second lien debt tranches materially, from 76.2% of cost and 75.9% of cost to 28.7% of cost for each tranche, respectively.
     There are a couple worrisome things worth noting here. Firstly, the non-accrual was effective 7/1/18 and yet a day before this Francis had both its second lien term debt tranches marked at about 75% of cost. Secondly, and even worse, is that the company did not disclose the non-accrual status of Francis in the subsequent events in its 6/30/18 10-Q which was filed with the SEC on 7/31/18. On 6/30/18 earnings call which took place on 8/1/18, this was also not mentioned.
     We find this to be deeply worrisome, as not disclosing material events like this should be viewed as a red flag. Additionally, we expect that with second lien debt in a bankrupt oil & gas company that the loans at Francis will be written down to zero. This should cause further decreases in NAV/share, in our opinion.
     During the quarter, Gladstone also restructured its $30.0mm investment in Sunshine Media Holdings which drove a $28.2mm realized loss on the quarter. At 6/30/18, Sunshine’s total position had an unrealized loss of $27.7 million.
     We are revising our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.84 from $0.88 and are rolling out our fiscal 2020 NII/share estimate of $0.84. We expect the company to rely heavily on fee waivers through fiscal 2019 to meet its quarterly dividend. Our $7 price target represents an 11% discount to our F4Q20 NAV/share estimate of $7.89" (11/16/2018)
