What are Wall Street analysts saying about Barings BDC stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Barings BDC stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Barings BDC, Inc. is an externally managed business development company which primarily makes debt investments in middle market companies. The company is primarily managed by Barings, LLC, a premier global asset manager. Barings BDC Inc., formerly known as TRIANGLE CAPITAL CORPORATION, is based in Charlotte, United States. " (3/6/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ As a reminder, Barings took over the management contract from the former Triangle Capital which was, well, not exactly the best run BDC to be polite about it. Since taking over, management has implemented a very low fee structure and originated conservatively structured loans (low spreads and attachment points) while keeping a relatively high hurdle rate for incentive fees.
    ▪ Barings’ current portfolio is 79% BSL (broadly syndicated loans) and 21% MM (middle market) direct originations. We expect the company to rotate out of the BSL and into more direct originations which will be beneficial to both yield and NIM. Given the rebound in BSL prices QTD, we would expect the company to pick up the pace of the sales of these loans to funnel into direct originations.
    ▪ There are a couple things worth noting regarding the BSL/MM mix. First, Barings isn’t just picking BSL by throwing a dart. The Barings platform is very large and has a strong syndicated loan/CLO platform from which they can get due diligence and source these investments; thus, these are not whimsical placeholders. Second, MM loans in Barings’ book have an average spread over LIBOR of 502 bps with weighted average total leverage of 5.0x.
    ▪ At the close on 3/1/19, BBDC shares were trading at an 11% discount to NAV despite these portfolio characteristics and likely tailwind for yield and NIM with portfolio rotation. We also note that on a forward NAV basis, we believe that the discount is even wider as NAV/share was down almost entirely due to mark-to-market from spread widening and we expect favorable marks for 3/31/19 given the increase in BSL prices QTD which would boost NAV.
    ▪ We are revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.86 from $0.83 and are rolling out our 2020 NII/share estimate of $0.92." (3/4/2019)
