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, "▪ Horizon earned NII/share of $0.34 for 4Q18, a penny above our estimate and comfortably above the $0.30/share quarterly dividend. Prepayment fees were $745K, up from $102K Q/Q and materially above our estimate for the quarter of $434K. Total principal repayments were outsized at $39.0mm on the quarter and $101.3mm on the year.
    ▪ The SLF’s assets grew to $26.4mm at year-end 2018 from $9.8mm the quarter prior. Notably, the company transferred $16.8mm of three new investments into the SLF which were all initially funded at HRZN. We expect that as the SLF grows and eventually taps its credit line that returns from this vehicle will improve and likely serve as a tailwind for earnings growth. While the SLF can go to 2.00x D/E, management discussed keeping the SLF leverage at around the same target of the balance sheet (0.80x-1.20x) although they might go slightly higher in the SLF.
    ▪ HRZN had a 12.1% onboarding yield for the quarter compared to a total weighted average debt yield of 16.7%. The delta between the two is comprised largely of ETP (end of term payments) and other fees. ETP and other fees are generally driven by the exit of portfolio companies and VCs are able to exit companies when equity valuations are higher. Thus, we think that a good portion of the total effective yield Horizon is able to earn is contingent upon valuation multiples and overall VC activity, both of which are somewhat volatile and difficult to forecast.
    ▪ Despite the portfolio being in good shape and the likely positive trajectory for earnings growth we remain NEUTRAL on shares with an $11 price target as we think a small venture lender in an aging credit cycle will likely command a modest NAV discount. We are revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.30 from $1.26 and rolling out our 2020 NII/share estimate of $1.33." (3/7/2019)
  • 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. " (1/2/2019)
  • 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)
