What are analysts saying about TCP Capital Corp. stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about TCP Capital Corp. stock:

  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, "• We are upgrading TCPC to BUY from NEUTRAL and raising our price target to $19 from $17. To remind our readers, we had previously downgraded shares to NEUTRAL in November 2016 for valuation only. TCP has continued to outperform most peers in the sector with a more favorable fee structure, consistently strong economic returns, minimal credit issues, and steady portfolio growth. With comparable peers trading much richer and TCP continuing to have excellent operational performance, we think the gap between peers and TCP will narrow and think that TCPC shares have additional upside.
    • NAV improved Q/Q to $15.04 from $14.92, largely as a result of the accretive equity issuance done at a 13% premium to 1Q17 NAV/share. The portfolio at fair value increased by 8% Q/Q to $1.45 billion with origination volume during the quarter a very robust $263.4 million. We think TCP saw good deal flow and opportunities as the company has always been a very disciplined credit investor.
    • We are revising our 2017 NII/share estimate to $1.58 from $1.56 and are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $1.60 from $1.61." (8/7/2017)
