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. " (5/8/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "• Horizon posted NII/share of $0.28 versus our estimate of $0.30. The earnings fell 2 cents shy of the $0.30/share quarterly dividend. Although the company experienced record originations last quarter that closed mostly in December and helped boost investment income materially in 1Q18, repayments of $15.5 million and sales of $2.7 million exceeded the $8.6 million of originations in 1Q18.
    • We anticipate Horizon’s portfolio will grow modestly and balance sheet leverage should pick up, which would likely see the company earn its dividend on a NII basis. However, we expect the dividend to only be out-earned in 3Q19 while we expect NII to match the dividend for every other quarter from 2Q18 – 4Q19. Horizon seems to be cutting it close, in our opinion.
    • While an increase in leverage could help HRZN augment its earnings further down the road, the company has not yet gotten Board or shareholder approval for the leverage increase and thus we do not yet model it into our assumptions.
    • Horizon finished 3/31/18 with no investments on non-accrual status. Previous non-accrual Digital Signal was sold during 1Q18. Modest unrealized and realized losses drove a slight Q/Q NAV/share decline to $11.65 from $11.72 although we model a stable NAV/share through 2019. What is most concerning to us is that investments ranked “2” increased from 2.8% of the portfolio to 11.1% of the portfolio at fair value Q/Q. These are watch listed credits that are underperforming. Additionally, most of the move Q/Q was from a single investment: vTv Therapeutics.
    • We are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $1.17 from $1.25 and our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.20 from $1.19. " (5/3/2018)
  • 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)
