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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Oaktree Specialty Lending Corporation is a specialty finance company. It provides customized, one-stop credit solutions to companies with limited access to public or syndicated capital markets. The company generates current income and capital appreciation by providing companies with flexible and innovative financing solutions including first and second lien loans, unsecured and mezzanine loans and preferred equity. Oaktree Specialty Lending Corporation, formerly known as Fifth Street Finance Corp., is based in CA, United States. " (4/13/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " OCSL earned NII/share of $0.12 for F1Q19, a penny ahead of our estimate and comfortably above the $0.095/share quarterly dividend. Much more significant than the earnings beat, in our opinion, was that NAV/share improved to $6.19 from $6.09 Q/Q. Non-accruals (including PIK) appreciated by $47.1mm Q/Q.
     The company has made excellent progress with not only rotating out of legacy Fifth Street assets, but it has done so at or above marks. This gives us a high degree of confidence in management’s ability to accurately assess conditions at portfolio companies and value them accordingly.
     Subsequent to quarter-end, Maverick Healthcare was sold for a mark $12mm above the 12/31/18 marks. This leads us to model a sizable realized gain, although some of the gain will be held in escrow and likely realized in the 6/30/19 quarter, by our estimates. Dominion Diagnostics is also likely to be sold, although a timeframe was not given.
     The success in the disposition of troubled, inherited assets speaks to the strength of Oaktree’s broader platform, particularly the restructuring group. We think that unlike most peers who brag about using the larger external manager, Oaktree has actually done this and will likely continue to do this in order to monetize remaining non-core investments.
     The recycling of non-income producing equity and non-accrual assets as well as increased allocation to Kemper (which is only leveraged at about 1.00x at quarter-end with the ability to go to 2.00x) likely bodes well for effective yield and thus earnings despite higher yielding legacy investments largely rolling off.
     We are revising our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.50 from $0.45 and our fiscal 2020 NII/share estimate to $0.55 from $0.47. We are accordingly upgrading shares to BUY from NEUTRAL and increasing our price target to $7 from $5. " (2/7/2019)
