  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "We are maintaining our quarterly estimate of $0.29 for each of the remaining three quarters of FY19, covering the dividend. 2019, PFLT will be able to raise on-balance-sheet leverage to 200% of equity, from 100%. If loan demand is sufficient for PFLT to prudently increase its leverage above 100%, then our FY19 EPS estimate could be low, and even a dividend increase could be a possibility. At this time, however, we are making no changes. We are maintaining our price target of $14.50. Our price target equates to 1.06x NAV, which is inline with or below the valuations of relevant high-quality peers. In our view, BDCs such as PFLT (with strong credit quality and focused on senior secured, floating rate investments) are very attractive in the current environment." (2/7/2019)
