What are Wall Street analysts saying about Oaktree Specialty Lending stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Oaktree Specialty Lending stock:
  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, " Oaktree earned $0.10 for the 6/30/18 quarter versus our estimate of $0.11 and the quarterly dividend of $0.095/share which was held flat with the quarter prior.
     The company continues to rotate out of legacy Fifth street assets at a brisk pace with $536.0 million in non-core assets exited at par or above marks. Of this total $179.0 million was sold alone in fiscal 3Q18 with $42.0 million of the total being non-interest bearing, with $135.0 million of non-interest-bearing assets remaining.
     The ability to roll non-interest-bearing assets into direct originations bodes well for earnings going forward. Additionally, Oaktree had $409.0 million in originations versus $228.4 million of repayments but most of the asset repayments and sales occurred earlier in the quarter with most originations coming later in the quarter. As such, interest income should pick up going forward.
     The biggest drag on the company by far is the troubled portion of the inherited Fifth Street portfolio and the possibility that assets not currently on non-accrual that were inherited will eventually placed there. Despite robust restructuring and workout platforms on Oaktree’s platform we note that there is likely a long timeline of when these assets get worked out. We think Oaktree has done a good job valuing their book but there is likely a lot of uncertainty surrounding the shoddy underwriting that was the norm at Fifth Street. That is on top of a portfolio with some very concentrated positions.
     We expect these factors to weigh on the multiple the stock trades at despite the potential earnings tailwinds, many of which we believe will be recognized in fiscal 2H19.
     We are maintaining revising our fiscal 2018 NII/share estimate to $0.40 from $0.43 and our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.44 from $0.36. and maintaining our NEUTRAL rating and $5 price target." (8/13/2018)
