What are Wall Street analysts saying about Oxford Square Capital stock? Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Oxford Square Capital stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Oxford Square Capital Corp. is a business development company principally investing in syndicated bank loans and debt and equity tranches of CLO vehicles. Oxford Square Capital Corp., formerly known as TICC Capital Corp., is based in Greenwich, United States. " (5/17/2019) 2. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ Oxford posted core NII/share of $0.20 compared to our estimate of $0.19. The core NII is, as expected, far lower than 4Q18 when market dislocation increased core NII to $0.34 per share. As a reminder, we add back CLO equity cost reductions (which is cash flow in excess of GAAP effective yield assumptions) to NII to arrive at our core figures. This dipped to $1.4mm (compared to our estimate of $1.2mm) from $7.9mm the quarter prior. ▪ NAV/share was up a modest $0.07/share Q/Q to $6.67 despite a significant rally in loan prices with the average bid up over 4% on the quarter after sliding 5.8% Q/Q for the 12/31/18 quarter. We understand that CLO equity prices remain depressed, with a good deal of the market still under 60% of cost despite loan prices rebounding. However, what strikes us as odd is that the roughly 62% of the portfolio in BSL and club deals wasn’t marked up. Senior secured notes depreciated by $4.0mm after depreciating by $8.5mm in 4Q18. This has to be due to idiosyncratic credit issues; or one would think. Yet loans ranked “3” actually decreased Q/Q to 8.7% from 10.6%. Spreads narrowed materially, so the marks aren’t technical, but the internal rankings are showing net improvement in individual credit so we are puzzled by this. ▪ The portfolio at cost finished 1Q19 at $483.4mm, down from $496.4mm Q/Q. In April, Oxford issued $44.8mm (including partial exercise of overallotment) of seven-year notes at a 6.25% coupon. On the call, management noted that the proceeds will be used to fund investments rather than pay-down the credit facility. While there has not been leverage guidance provided by management, we do not expect D/E to go much above 1.00x as CLO equity runs at around a third of the portfolio and is leveraged 10x and we expect the company doesn’t want economic leverage running too high. ▪ The loan market dislocation we expect in 2H19 will likely cause NAV to decline materially (although core NII should increase significantly) and, as they have in the past, we think market participants will likely sell a company whose portfolio is roughly a third long volatility (in CLO equity) due to technical marks. ▪ We are maintaining our SELL rating and $5 price target. We are revising our 2019 core NII/share estimate to $0.98 from $0.93 and our 2020 core NII/share estimate to $0.81 from $0.80."
