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. 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. " (11/3/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " Horizon posted NII/share of $0.30 for 3Q18, matching both our estimate as well as the quarterly dividend. The company had $24.2 million of originations versus sales and repayments of $11.9 million.
     Notably, the SLF, which began in 1Q18, was flat on the quarter. Horizon didn’t give a lot of detail on why the JV didn’t grow but the on-balance sheet portfolio did. We expect that Arena (their partner) didn’t approve of the loans sourced during the quarter to go into the SLF. Going forward, we expect the SLF will be a tailwind for yield and earnings for HRZN.
     The company introduced a breakpoint on the base fee along with the shareholder approval to increase leverage. HRZN will earn 160 bps on gross assets less cash over $250.0 million and 200 bps on assets less cash up to $250.0 million. This will enable shareholders to benefit from the reduced asset coverage, although we note that the breakpoint is not contingent on D/E but rather total assets less cash.
     NAV/share was up 6 cents on the quarter to $11.66 as Horizon continues to have no investments on non-accrual and has not had non-accruals for all of 2018. The company will likely need to continue to exercise more caution going forward. On the earnings call, management noted that some of the deterioration in terms we have become accustomed to seeing in the middle market have made their way into venture lending as well.
     HRZN has made good strides since 2017 with cleaning up its portfolio and improving dividend coverage. However, we think shares are in proximity to fair value as our $11 price target represents a 7% discount to our 4Q19 NAV/share estimate which we think is warranted for a small venture lender." (11/2/2018)
  • 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)
