According to Zacks Investment Research, "Solar Senior Capital Ltd. operates as a business development company under the Investment Company Act of 1940. The Company invests primarily in senior secured loans, including first lien, unitranche and second lien debt instruments, made to private middle-market companies whose debt is rated below investment grade. " (11/16/2018) 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "2Q18 net investment income (NII) of $0.35/share matched its $0.35 dividend. With: (1) asset-based lending comprising nearly 40% of SUNS’ comprehensive investment portfolio, (2) low leverage, and (3) 94% floating-rate loans, SUNS appears to be very well-positioned for the current environment. We lower our 2018 EPS estimate to $1.39, from $1.41, because 2Q18 results came in $0.01 below our estimate (and because of rounding). Our unchanged price target of $18.50 equates to 1.1x NAV, inline with best-in-class BDCs. SUNS is our top BDC pick, especially for retail investors, based on its credit risk profile and its interest rate risk profile."
