What are analysts saying about Navient Corp stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Navient Corp stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Navient’s shares outperformed the Zacks categorized Consumer Loan industry over the past one year. The U.S. student loan industry is currently under heightened regulatory scrutiny over alleged anti-consumer practices. Navient, which services large number of student loans, is under regulatory claims and litigation burden owing to its practices in handling loans. However, on a positive note, the company should benefit from the ongoing economic recovery and remains focused on leveraging its asset recovery & processing businesses. Management expects 2017 core EPS is in the range of $1.80–$1.84 (excluding regulatory costs). Moreover, capital deployment activities is encouraging." (4/5/2017)
  • 2. Wedbush analysts commented, "We are initiating coverage on Navient Corp. (NAVI) with a NEUTRAL rating and a $16.50 price target. Navient is the student loan servicing and legacy FFELP & private student loan business spun out of Sallie Mae in 2014. While two of the company's three business lines appear to be in runoff, the company has been able to generate a significant amount of cash flows with which to pay down debt, buy back stock and pay dividends. In 2016, NAVI retired $2.6 billion in senior debt, repurchased $60 million in stock (17% of shares outstanding), and paid an annual dividend of $0.64 per share." (1/30/2017)
  • 3. Jefferies Group LLC analysts commented, "We are initiating coverage on Navient (NAVI) with a Hold rating and $18 price target. While we consider NAVI a strong company, the recent rally in the stock has converged the public equity value with our assessment of an NPV of the portfolio added to a segment value for servicing, leaving insufficient upside for a Buy, in our opinion. That said, we keep a watchful eye on ongoing expansion of the Business Services segment which may drive upside over time. We observe that NAVI is among the best capital return stories within our coverage universe, however, we assign a Hold rating as the recent rally leaves the stock near its intrinsic value. In our opinion, the equity value has converged to a level near our assessment of a sum-of-the-parts valuation. That said, we note the nearly 4% dividend yield may be attractive for income-oriented investors and we support management’s focus on capital returns. Further, NAVI continues to focus on special servicing opportunities within its Business Services segment, and incremental growth within this division could both add to earnings power and enhance the multiple over time. Sum of the parts DCF analysis supports our $18 PT. As we detail herein, when we conduct a DCF analysis of the loan portfolio, and add to this an assessed value of the servicing (Business Services) business, we conclude that an $18PT is reasonable."
