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. " (2/12/2020)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ Barings posted NII/share of $0.16 for 1Q19, flat with the prior quarter and shy of our estimate of $0.18. Notably, the portfolio was 74% BSL compared with 79% Q/Q. We had expected a more rapid rotation out of BSL and into MM originations.
    ▪ The company completed a securitization in 2Q19 with class A-1 and A-2 notes totaling $348.3mm using BSL. This is a static securitization and the company was able to attain favorable financing with LIBOR spreads of 102 bps on A-1 and 165 bps on A-2 with a seven-year duration. Barings still has roughly $400mm of BSL outside the securitization that they can rotate over the next year into MM loans. We expect renewed loan market volatility in 3Q19 and 4Q19 to present opportunities to the company, and we wouldn’t be surprised to see more opportunistic BSL purchases. As a reminder, Barings has a large CLO and liquid credit platform that provides the company with a significant advantage in both liquid loan markets and direct lending, as we see it.
    ▪ In May, Barings also entered into an agreement with the State of South Carolina Retirement System with Barings committing $50mm and their partner committing $500mm of equity. This will be differentiated from a typical BDC JV structure and will be used to invest in both US and European liquid and illiquid credit, structured products, and real estate debt. Barings has over $300 billion under management and expertise across a broad array of investments and is by no means taking a random guess at these different verticals.
    ▪ The BSL book was marked down $50mm in 4Q18 and recovered about half of that in the 3/31/19 quarter with another $10-$12mm recovered QTD. We expect another NAV/share increase at 6/30/19 and BBDC continues to trade at an unwarranted discount, as we see it. The company’s portfolio is 329 bps over LIBOR in the BSL book and 501 bps over LIBOR on the MM book with 4.9x and 4.5x senior leverage, respectively. We think this is one of the most conservatively structured portfolios in the BDC sector and we believe the market is mispricing the underlying credit risk (or lack thereof) in BBDC.
    ▪ We are revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $0.72 from $0.86 and our 2020 NII/share estimate to $0.91 from $0.92. Our downward revision in 2019 is solely due to our expectations for a longer time horizon to rotate out of BSL and more into MM loans." (5/13/2019)
