What are Wall Street analysts saying about BlackRock TCP Capital stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about BlackRock TCP Capital stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "BlackRock TCP Capital Corp. is an externally-managed non-diversified closed-end management investment company. It focused on middle-market lending. BlackRock TCP Capital Corp., formerly known as TCP Capital Corp., is headquartered in Santa Monica, CA. " (3/13/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ For 4Q18, TCPC earned NII/share of $0.40, shy of our $0.43/share estimate but well above the $0.36/share quarterly dividend. NAV/share was down to $14.13 from $14.51 Q/Q and from $14.80 Y/Y.
    ▪ During the quarter, AGY was written down by $3.4mm, Green Biologics by $8.2mm, and Kawa Solar by $2.1mm for combined depreciation of $13.6mm. As noted last quarter, the only non-accrual, Real Mex, was exited in 4Q18. This was a legacy investment from before TCPC had its IPO. The company realized a loss of $25.8mm on Real Mex for 2018 and also had a $4.1mm realized loss on the exit of Globecomm.
    ▪ While AGY, Green Biologics, and Kawa have all been written down significantly we think it’s certainly plausible to expect further write-downs on these assets. While this isn’t crippling in any way for TCPC, it could potentially pressure NAV.
    ▪ TCPC’s Board approved reduced asset coverage and the company’s shareholders approved the reduction on 2/8/19, making the reduced asset coverage effective immediately. Although management has not provided leverage guidance, we note that the company has investment grade ratings from S&P, Moody’s, and Fitch. Thus far, peers that have maintained these ratings with reduced asset coverage have targeted between 0.90x-1.25x D/E and thus we expect TCPC to do the same.
    ▪ We continue to regard TCPC as one of the most disciplined underwriters in the sector with one of the most shareholder friendly fee structures with a lookback to the inception of the company. We are revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.68 from $1.70. and are rolling out our 2020 NII/share estimate of $1.70. We are maintaining our BUY rating and trimming our price target to $18 from $19." (3/4/2019)
