Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about THL Credit stock: 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "THL Credit Inc. is a newly-organized, externally-managed, non-diversified closed-end management investment company that has filed an election to be treated as a business development company. The Company's investment objective is to generate both current income and capital appreciation, primarily through investments in privately negotiated debt and equity securities of middle market companies. The Company invests primarily in private subordinated debt, or mezzanine debt, in middle market companies that require capital for growth and acquisitions. Such investments in many cases include an associated equity component such as warrants, preferred stock or other similar securities. The Company's investment activities are managed by its investment adviser, THL Credit Advisors LLC, which is an investment adviser registered under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended. " (10/10/2018) 2. National Securities analysts commented, " TCRD earned NII/share of $0.31 for 2Q18, above our estimate of $0.28 and the quarterly dividend of $0.27. The beat was primarily driven by prepayment-related income as accretion of discounts and other fees increased to $1.2 million from $700,000 Q/Q and prepayment premiums increased to $300,000 from $100,00. Non-accruals at cost decreased to $9.7 million or 1.7% of the portfolio from $42.6 million or 6.7% of the portfolio. Charming Charlie, Aerogroup, and Specialty Brands all came off non-accrual although the two remaining non-accruals, Tri Starr and Loadmaster Derrick, were marked down slightly more Q/Q. Non-sponsor investments still comprise 15% of the portfolio and as a result we think that this will keep the valuation of shares muted even if no further non-accruals pop up until these legacy investments eventually roll off or get sold. We think that NAV/share will decrease to $10.07 at the end of 2018 before stabilizing through 2H19 to finish the year at $10.04. When these investments do roll off or are sold which we expect to be largely complete by the end of 1H19, we expect the yield on on-balance sheet investments to decline. However, an offset to the decline in yield we model from fewer legacy investments and more of a first lien focus should be increases in the Logan JV which finished 6/30/18 at 15.0% of the portfolio at cost and a yield of 14.4%. We expect Logan to comprise 18.4% of the portfolio at cost in 4Q18 and 28.4% in 4Q19. We model the quarterly dividend to be cut to $0.23/share from $0.27/share in 3Q19 upon resumption of the incentive fee. We are revising 2018 NII/share estimate to $1.13 from $1.12 and our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.04 from $1.05. We are maintaining our NEUTRAL rating and our $10 price target." (8/14/2018) 3. Maxim Group analysts commented, "While TCRD covered the dividend with core NII (even with a smaller investment portfolio), investment losses reduced EPS to below the dividend, so net asset value (NAV) was down 1.2%. Based on core NII of $0.28 covering the dividend in 3Q17, and on TCRD’s agreement to waive up to 25% of incentive fees in 2018 to the extent necessary to cover its $0.27 quarterly dividend, we are introducing 2018 dividend and EPS estimates of $1.08. Our price target equates to 1.0x NAV, which is inline with relevant peers." (11/10/2017) Who are some of THL Credit's key competitors?
