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. " (11/20/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " FSIC earned adjusted NII/share of $0.23 for 3Q18 compared with our estimate of $0.21 and the quarterly dividend of $0.19/share. The incentive fee was not earned on the quarter as non-accruals at cost increased to $210.4 million or 5.7% of the portfolio from $22.7 million or 0.6% of the portfolio Q/Q.
     Notably, Advanced Lighting, ThermaSys, and MC Precision Holdings were added to non-accrual with a combined cost of $187.7 million.
     While this is disappointing, we note that if assume that all of Advanced Lighting’s loans go to zero and the entire subordinated loan of ThermaSys goes to zero, this would have an impact of $0.21/share for 1Q19 (using our estimate for total shares outstanding). We use this in our assumptions, as we think that given the discount to NAV this is what the market is pricing in. Assuming further negative marks in the merger quarter (4Q18) and then zeros on Advanced Lighting and ThermaSys, NAV/share would pro-forma be $8.34 at 3/31/18 by our estimates.
     On a pro-forma basis for the merger, total non-accruals at cost would be $302.3 million or 3.9% of the portfolio at cost and subordinated debt would decline to 8.3% of the book at fair value from 9.5% and bonds would drop to 2.1% from 5.2%. Secured debt should decline to 70.6% from 73.4% but ABL, which we consider to be secured debt given it has lower default rates than cash flow loans, would be 5.9% of the combined portfolio. Additionally, the JV would be another 4.1% of the portfolio.
     We continue to think that the market is pricing in a disaster scenario which we do not view as likely. Even when we assume Advanced Lighting and ThermaSys go to zero, this is on a much larger combined portfolio with a more muted impact on NAV/share.
     We are revising 2018 adjusted NII/share estimate to $0.82 from $0.79 and our 2019 adjusted NII/share estimate to $0.82 from $0.88. We are maintaining our BUY rating and reducing our price target to $10 from $11. " (11/12/2018)
