What are Wall Street analysts saying about FS KKR Capital stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about FS KKR Capital stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "FS KKR Capital Corp. is a business development company. It invests primarily in the senior secured debt and subordinated debt of private middle market U.S. companies. FS KKR Capital Corp., formerly known as FS Investment Corporation, is based in Philadelphia, United States. " (8/6/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ For 1Q19 FSK earned adjusted NII/share of $0.18, a penny short of both the quarterly dividend and our estimate. The portfolio at cost increased to $7.79 billion from $7.76 billion Q/Q as the company had $549mm of originations versus $510mm of sales and redemptions.
    ▪ NAV/share increased slightly to $7.86 from $7.84 the quarter prior. NAV/share was positively impacted by spread compression in both loan and bond markets but offset by certain portfolio company write-downs. There was one new small non-accrual, Sunguard Availability Services, marked at 33% of cost. Total non-accruals at cost were written down to 21% of cost from 45% Q/Q for a total impact of $32.3mm or $0.06/share.
    ▪ FSK filed a proxy on 4/23/19 to allow shareholders to vote on reduced asset coverage. We expect that shareholders will vote in favor of the proposal, which also would reduce the base fee on gross assets less cash purchased with D/E greater than 1.00x to 100 bps.
    ▪ On the earnings call, management stated that the near-term target D/E if given approval would be 0.95x but stated that they could potentially exceed this opportunistically if the market was attractive enough from dislocation. We think this is a good move by FSK as the upper middle market (UMM) portfolio is one that is likely fine with being levered at 1.00x. The increased flexibility afforded under reduced asset coverage could assist the company in bolstering earnings during periods of market volatility and will also serve to expand the 30% basket, enabling further growth of the senior credit fund (SCF).
    ▪ We are revising 2019 adjusted NII/share estimate to $0.79 from $0.80 and our 2020 adjusted NII/share estimate to $0.82 from $0.84. We are maintaining our BUY rating and our $10 price target." (5/13/2019)
