What are Wall Street analysts saying about Horizon Technology Finance stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Horizon Technology Finance stock:
  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, " HRZN earned $0.29/share of NII for 2Q19, ahead of consensus by a penny but just short of the $0.30/share quarterly dividend. We expect that Horizon will earn its dividend next quarter and that increased balance sheet leverage will serve to improve dividend coverage through 2019.
     While the dividend should be earned courtesy of increased leverage and thus NII ROAE, we note that looking past 2019 incremental leverage should lead to less earnings power as base fees increase and eat into what ultimately will fall to the bottom line for shareholders.
     We think D/E will average 0.78x for 2018 and 0.88x for 2019. Accordingly, we think NII ROAE will improve by 90 bps Y/Y in 2019 as a result of the increased average leverage on the balance sheet.
     Horizon began a SLF (senior loan fund) during the quarter and expects the vehicle to leverage up and continue to make new investments. We expect capital allocation to be prioritized to the SLF over the next six quarters and think that the vehicle will start to positively impact effective yield in fiscal 2Q19.
     HRZN’s NAV/share dipped 5 cents Q/Q to $11.60 although credit quality remained stable with no non-accruals. We expect NAV/share to remain relatively stable and finish 2018 at $11.65 and 2019 at $11.70.
     Our $11 price target represents a 6% discount to our 4Q19 NAV/share estimate which we believe is fair given HRZN’s track record and the fact that it is a venture debt lender which entails a greater degree of risk than middle market cash flow lending, in our opinion. We are maintaining our 2018 NII/share estimate of $1.17 and revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.23 from $1.20." (8/6/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Horizon Technology Finance Corporation is a closed-end investment company that has elected to be treated as a business development company under the Investment Company Act of 1940. The Company makes secured loans to development-stage companies in the technology, life science, healthcare information and services, and cleantech industries. Horizon Technology Finance Corporation is headquartered in Farmington, United States of America. " (8/3/2018)
  • 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "1Q18 NII was $0.28 per share versus the dividend of $0.30, partly due to a smaller investment portfolio (down 4.5%, driven by early payoffs). For the remainder of 2018, we expect a combination of modest portfolio growth plus the positive impact of higher interest rates to generate sufficient earnings to cover the dividend. Our $12 price target equates to 1.0x NAV. In our view, BDCs such as HRZN (focused on senior secured, floating rate loans with warrants) should not trade below a valuation level of 1.0x NAV in the current environment." (5/2/2018)
