What are Wall Street analysts saying about Solar Capital stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Solar Capital stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Solar Capital Ltd. is a closed-end investment company that invests primarily in leveraged companies, including middle market companies, in the form of senior secured loans, mezzanine loans, and equity securities. " (8/6/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ SLRC earned $0.44/share of NII for 1Q19, a penny shy of our estimate but comfortably above the $0.41/share quarterly dividend. The dividend is being comfortably out-earned even with a balance sheet that is underleveraged with minimal prepayment-related income (both fees and acceleration of unamortized OID). This leads us to expect an increase in the quarterly dividend by a penny per share both in 2019 and 2020 with payout ratios remaining conservative.
    ▪ NAV/share bounced back to $21.93 from $21.75 Q/Q as credit spreads tightened for the 3/31/19 quarter. We expect NAV/share to steadily improve courtesy of an out-earned dividend and what we expect will be a continuation of very strong asset quality. We regard Solar as one of the most disciplined credit investors in the BDC sector.
    ▪ The revenue stream at Solar remains arguably the most diversified in the entire sector. In 1Q19, 31.1% was from cash flow lending, 31.2% from asset-based lending (ABL), 14.2% from equipment financing, and 23.5% from life sciences lending. This permits Solar to maintain both yield and volume even during periods of material spread compression and poor terms that have plagued middle market cash flow lending. We see this is as a significant advantage for the company and one that we do not believe the market fully appreciates.
    ▪ The 30% basket has been freed up significantly since 3Q18 when JVs were brought on-balance sheet and the company will likely continue to evaluate more specialty finance platform acquisitions. Although we do not model in an acquisition as we are unsure of what this could look like and when it could take place, any such acquisition could further diversify SLRC’s revenue stream and lead us to expect greater portfolio growth than we currently anticipate.
    ▪ We are revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.81 from $1.86 and are our 2020 NII/share estimate to $1.96 from $2.00. We are maintaining our BUY rating and $25 price target." (5/8/2019)
