What are Wall Street analysts saying about THL Credit stock? 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. " (11/16/2018) 2. National Securities analysts commented, " TCRD’s NAV/share decreased to $10.10 from $10.23 Q/Q largely pertaining to write-downs from Charming Charlie’s and LAI. Although these are not currently on non-accrual, previous non-accrual Loadmaster Derrick’s revolver was also placed on non-accrual during the quarter, bringing the cost basis of this investment’s non-accruals up to $13.0 million from $8.4 million Q/Q. The good news for THL is that Tri Starr was exited subsequent to quarter-end consistent with the 9/30/18 marks. We think the market will likely continue to discount the stock, however, as it considers the potential for further companies in the non-sponsor book (or other parts of the portfolio) to be written down further. At 9/30/18, THL had five non-sponsor investments remaining with control equity in four of them although Tri Starr was exited in 4Q18. Copperweld’s performance has improved and TCRD began to accrue a dividend on the preferred stock of the investment. The portfolio at fair value shrank to $532.8million from $559.0 million Q/Q as management noted that repayment activity picked up at the end of the quarter and they were not able to deploy all of the capital. This caused NII/share to come in at $0.26 with the incentive fee waived. We think that with the resumption of the incentive fee likely not being waived in 3Q19 that TCRD should be forced to cut its quarterly dividend to $0.19/share from $0.27/share currently. We note that earnings should also likely be negatively impacted by $0.03/share in 4Q18 pertaining to the redemption of the 2021 notes. We are revising 2018 NII/share estimate to $1.04 from $1.13 and our 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.95 from $1.04. We are maintaining our NEUTRAL rating and trimming our price target to $9 from $10."
