What are Wall Street analysts saying about FS Investment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about FS Investment stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "FS Investment Corporation is a business development company. It primarily originates and invests in senior secured loans and other securities of private U.S. companies, with the investment objective of generating current income and, to a lesser extent, long-term capital appreciation. FS Investment Corporation is based in United States. " (8/15/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " FSIC posted adjusted NII/share of $0.19 for 2Q18, two cents shy of our estimate and in-line with the quarterly dividend. The portfolio at cost shrank by $66.6 million Q/Q to $3.66 billion from $3.73 billion. Additionally, despite the portfolio shrinking, prepayment-related income (acceleration of unamortized OID and fees) was minimal during the quarter which also had a negative impact on earnings.
     Non-accruals at cost increased to $22.7 million or 0.6% of the portfolio from $1.3 million the quarter prior. H.M. Dunn remained on non-accrual with a cost of $643,000 and Logan’s Roadhouse, a previously restructured credit, was placed back on non-accrual status with a cost of $22.1 million during the quarter. H.M. Dunn and Logan’s are marked at 31% of cost and 28% of cost, respectively.
     NAV/share decreased Q/Q to $8.87 from $9.16 as unrealized losses of $110.5 million eclipsed $30.7 million of realized gains in 2Q18. The decline was related to write-downs in ThermaSys, Advanced Lighting, Hudson Technologies, Logan’s Roadhouse, and Global Jet Capital. The realized gains were driven by full exits of three different equity investments, with a fourth likely being done subsequent to quarter-end as a sale of the company was announced.
     FSIC continues to make progress on reducing its restructured and non-income producing equity portfolio. The merger with CCT will likely increase comprehensive senior secured loan exposure (including the JV) and we expect there to be a reduced probability of NAV declines going forward.
     We are revising 2018 adjusted NII/share estimate to $0.79 from $0.81 and our 2019 adjusted NII/share estimate to $0.88 from $0.92. We are maintaining our BUY rating and our $11 price target." (8/13/2018)
