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. " (2/17/2020)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ GLAD’s portfolio at fair value declined to $387.7mm from $431.2mm Q/Q. Originations were light at
    around $4.0mm while prepayments came in at $48.5mm on the quarter. We expect the significant
    prepayment activity drove both prepayment fees as well as accelerated unamortized original issue
    discount (OID). Despite the portfolio shrinking, total investment income increased to $12.5mm from
    $11.9mm Q/Q.
    ▪ Unrealized appreciation of $1.0mm and a $2.3mm realized gain drove the NAV/share increase to
    $8.11 from $7.98 Q/Q. We suspect that positive technical marks courtesy of loan prices rallying
    during the 3/31/19 quarter outweighed some idiosyncratic negative marks. Notably, LWO
    Acquisitions Company was marked down to 34% of cost from 61% Q/Q and Gladstone now has it as
    a control position. New Trident and Meridian Rack & Pinion were both placed on non-accrual,
    although the combined cost is a rather small $8.6mm. Impact! Chemical Technologies and WadeCo
    Specialties were merged into a single company, Imperative Holdings Corp. Both share the same
    sponsor and Gladstone’s total oil and gas exposure at cost dipped to $37.0mm from $47.9mm Q/Q.
    ▪ Since 6/30/18, Gladstone’s NAV/share is down 8.4%. The lower middle market (LMM) portfolio is
    38% second lien at cost and equity exposure is over 10%. With a constantly aging credit cycle, we
    are baffled by the multiple GLAD trades at. Shares closed 5/2/19 at 15% above NAV and we think
    that the market is not appropriately discounting the inherent risk in GLAD’s portfolio. The company
    has the ability to bring D/E up to 2.00x, although shareholders will not receive any material benefit
    over 1.00x D/E as the company has not implemented a break point in base management fees and
    thus even with ramped leverage and portfolio growth, we don’t expect NII/share improvement. We
    continue to think shares are overvalued.
    ▪ We are revising our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.85 from $0.84 and revising our fiscal 2020
    NII/share estimate to $0.84 from $0.86." (5/3/2019)
