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. " (11/15/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " For 3Q18, OXSQ posted estimated core NII/share of $0.20 versus our estimate of $0.19. Core numbers were not provided during the quarter in both the 8-K as well as the presentation and we are not sure why. However, we added back the $1.2 million in CLO equity reductions to cost in order to approximate estimated additional taxable income (EATI) and arrive at our core figures. This is unusual as OXSQ has reported this number consistently and dividend payout requirements for ’40 Act companies is based upon taxable income, not GAAP earnings or NII.
     We expect credit spreads to widen due to technical factors (meaning we do not expect defaults to pick-up) from 1Q19-3Q19. As a result, core NII will likely increase significantly due to the favorable reinvestment environment afforded to CLOs but this will also cause severely negative marks on the portfolio which would cause NAV to decline. BDCs with CLO equity typically do not receive good valuations and we think the market is unlikely to discern between mark-to-market from technical dislocation versus NAV decreases from credit issues and cash flow impairment and thus we think shares will decline with NAV despite the underlying economics of the assets improving during this time.
     In 2019, we think NAV/share will decline to $5.95 from our estimate of $7.47 in 4Q18 but we expect NIM to jump to 12.16% from 11.16% Y/Y. We do not expect much of a benefit in 4Q18 from recent equity market volatility as credit spreads remain stubbornly low. We remind readers that equities would need to be much more volatile for a prolonged period of time before credit is impacted to the point of improving spreads.
     We are maintaining our SELL rating and $5 price target. Our $5 price target represents a 16% discount to our 4Q19 NAV/share estimate. We think is reasonable as the market will likely discount shares meaningfully if the volatility we anticipate in loan markets materializes. " (11/5/2018)
