What are analysts saying about Horizon Technology Finance Corporation stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Horizon Technology Finance Corporation stock:

  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, "• HRZN trades at a modest 3% discount to NAV/share despite having non-accruals at cost totaling $16.0 million or 8.4% of the portfolio. NAV/share has continued its stead decline, a decline we expect to continue through 1Q18 before we expect some modest improvement.
    • We note that while HRZN’s origination platform has improved in terms of its origination volume, we expect that prepayments will continue to remain heavy and likely remain just ahead of origination volume we forecast. The result of this is that balance sheet leverage will remain far lower than we think many anticipate; which would further hinder NII/share growth at the company even assuming no further credit issues. An additional headwind on NII/share growth will be the resumption of the incentive fee earned in full that we model will occur in 2Q18.
    • During 2Q18, we expect the quarterly dividend to be cut again substantially to $0.24/share from $0.30/share currently.
    • We are maintaining both our 2017 NII/share estimate of $1.04 and our 2018 NII/share estimate of $1.05. " (10/17/2017)
  • 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. " (10/4/2017)
  • 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We upgrade HRZN to Buy, from Hold, mainly based on: (1) the hiring of three senior professionals focused on originating technology and life sciences loans; (2) a pipeline of loan commitments larger than at any time in the past five years; (3) producing expectations of a larger loan portfolio; and (4) coverage of the dividend in 2018."
