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. " (7/17/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "• FSIC earned adjusted NII/share of $0.21 for 1Q18, matching our estimate and exceeding the dividend by $0.02/share.
    • Despite the rumor mill of FSIC having massive runoff that they could not replace, the naysayers seem to have egg on their face. The company received only $216.0 million of repayments and sales, down from $234.6 million Q/Q. We wonder how many quarters of this rumor not materializing it will take before this rumor finally dies as we believe it has no basis in reality.
    • NAV/share was down on the quarter to $9.16 from $9.30 Q/Q as unrealized losses more than offset the out-earned dividend. Much of the unrealized depreciation came from equity investments, although we do not think this has much more downside risk.
    • The proxy statement has passed and FSIC is now under the KKR Credit umbrella which permits FSIC to co-invest across other FS affiliated funds as well as KKR affiliated funds and KKR’s own publicly traded BDC Corporate Capital Trust (NYSE: CCT – NR - $16.63). This scaled business bodes well for FSIC winning more and more deals from larger borrowers while also mitigating concentration risk. FSIC now has access to the largest co-invest AUM of any BDC and should dwarf the previously largest platforms in the sector.
    • While FSIC’s commentary on increased leverage was not extremely detailed, the company’s Board did pass the increased leverage allowed at the end of March. The company is cognizant of rating agencies’ actions, but we expect that they will ultimately utilize this increased leverage to bolster NII/share. Being part of the largest BDC platform should offset any potential rating downgrade in terms of the cost of capital, as we see it. We expect the company to reduce its base fee by 50 bps to 100 bps in 1Q19. We expect a dividend increase in 2Q19 as balance sheet leverage ramps the base fee is reduced.
    • We are revising our 2018 adjusted NII/share estimate to $0.84 from $0.88 and our 2019 adjusted NII/share estimate to $0.95 from $0.89." (5/15/2018)
