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. " (5/14/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ TCPC wrapped up a solid quarter with NMII/share coming in at $0.40, a penny short of our estimate but comfortably above the quarterly dividend of $0.36/share. This is the 28th consecutive quarter where NII has covered the dividend and although we lean towards calling the dividend policy “too conservative” we respect that the company never wishes to be in a situation where it’s forced to cut the dividend, which we think should provide a good deal of comfort to shareholders.
    ▪ TCPC had unrealized appreciation of $1.1mm for the quarter, as spread compression and positive technical marks outweighed a couple write-downs. There are no non-accruals at TCP but Green Biologics was further written down by $2.5mm Q/Q and Kawa Solar by $558K. Kawa continues to be wound down and the $7.6mm pay-down is indicative of further progress in that effort. The total position is marked at 39% of cost from 60% Q/Q and while it’s possible for this to be marked down further, the marks are already low enough that this wouldn’t be a major event for NAV.
    ▪ The company upsized its credit facilities by $50mm each and lowered the pricing on the SVCP facility by 50 bps over LIBOR. Shareholders approved the reduced asset coverage ratio for TCPC in February which affords the company flexibility which we anticipate management will utilize in a prudent manner. We continue to regard TCP as one of the most disciplined underwriters in the sector and we think the reduced asset coverage will permit the company to comfortably increase leverage an opportunistic basis, especially in times of market dislocation, but we don’t expect the company to run balance sheet leverage too high. The company had its investment grade rating from both Moody’s and S&P reaffirmed after getting Board approval for reduced asset coverage. Although TCPC doesn’t provide leverage guidance, its peers that have had their investment grade ratings have targeted D/E ranges of 0.90x-1.25x and thus we’d expect TCPC to stay well under 1.25x (inclusive of SBA debentures).
    ▪ We are revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.65 from $1.68 and are our 2020 NII/share estimate to $1.67 from $1.70." (5/13/2019)
