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. " (12/8/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " TCPC posted NII/share of $0.42 for 3Q18, two cents above our estimate and comfortably above the $0.36/share quarterly dividend. The company earned prepayment-related income (fees and OID acceleration) of about $0.06/share on the quarter.
     NAV/share decreased to $14.51 from $14.61 Q/Q as unrealized losses pertaining to Green Biologics, Real Mex, and AGY totaled $10.8 million. Subsequent to quarter-end the Real Mex position was exited near the 9/30/18 marks and thus we expect no change in NAV/share as a result of this exit. Real Mex represented the only non-accrual loan TCP had at the end of the quarter.
     The company received Board approval to reduce asset coverage to 150% from 200%. However, the company will also seek shareholder approval which we expect them to receive in 1Q19. Concomitant with shareholder approval, base fees would be cut to 100 bps on assets purchased with D/E over 1.00x, the hurdle rate on the incentive would be lowered to 7% from 8%, and the incentive fee would be reduced to 17.5% from 20.0%.
     We think that the overhang on the stock is largely from some market participants possibly expecting a merger with TCPC and BlackRock Capital Investment Corporation. (NYSE: BKCC – NR - $6.04). However, we note that this would need a shareholder vote that we do not think the company would receive and we think instead Blackrock is more likely to either sell the external management contract or let TCPC’s management run this vehicle simultaneously for years until the portfolios look almost the same and then vote to merge them down the road.
     We are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $1.62 from $1.57 and our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.70 from $1.63. We are maintaining our BUY rating and our $19 price target." (11/12/2018)
