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. " (3/10/2020)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "HRZN’s 2Q19 NII was $0.37 per share (helped by higher income related to liquidity events and waiver of some incentive fees) versus its dividend of $0.30. With a fifth consecutive quarter of portfolio growth (up 3.2% linked-quarter) and a strong pipeline of unfunded loan approvals (similar to 1Q19), HRZN is well-positioned to consistently cover its dividend with NII, in our view. We are maintaining our price target at $13, which equates to 1.12x NAV (previously 1.13x), inline with other high-quality BDCs." (8/6/2019)
  • 3. National Securities analysts commented, " Horizon posted NII/share of $0.28 for 1Q19, below our estimate and the quarterly dividend of $0.30/share. Total repayments dipped to $18.6mm on the quarter compared with $37.9mm Q/Q which caused a drop in prepayment income, although increases in other fee income provided somewhat of an offset to this.
     We note that Horizon had one loan of $15mm close on 3/31/19 and another $15mm loan close on 4/1/19. This interest income was obviously not recorded for the 3/31/19 quarter and will contribute to revenue fully for 2Q19. Additionally, Horizon has had quite a busy 6/30/19 quarter thus far. Including the 4/1/19 $15mm loan, the company closed on $72mm of new approvals and commitments. We think this portends stronger origination volume in 2Q19 and increased interest income.
     The company had an onboarding yield of 11.9% versus a weighted average debt investment yield of 14.4%, with the delta being prepayment fees and other accelerated income. Last quarter, HRZN had a 12.1% onboarding yield for the quarter compared to a total weighted average debt yield of 16.7%. We note that lower weighted average debt yield is likely due to much lower prepayment fees and accelerated income that varies based upon prepayment activity.
     Asset quality remains strong with no non-accruals since 4Q17. Origination volume has been robust and the company will also likely continue to grow its SLF which should be a tailwind for effective yield. However, given Horizon is a small venture lender we think it’s appropriate to apply a discount to NAV/share and thus we are maintaining our NEUTRAL rating. We are revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.24 from $1.30 and our 2020 NII/share estimate to $1.32 from $1.33." (5/2/2019)
