What are Wall Street analysts saying about Goldman Sachs BDC stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Goldman Sachs BDC stock:
  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, " For 3Q18, GSBD posted $0.54/share of NII, three cents above our estimate and comfortably above the $0.45/share quarterly dividend. Sales and repayments totaled $111.1 million on the quarter, up from $78.8 million Q/Q and we expect that this increased prepayment activity drove acceleration of unamortized OID and the earnings beat.
     Despite more sales and repayments, GSBD originated $189.1 million of loans during the quarter and the portfolio at cost grew to $1.34 billion from $1.26 billion the quarter prior. We expect the portfolio at cost to finish 2019 at $1.46 billion.
     Much of the earnings growth came from first lien loans which comprised 46.3% of the portfolio at fair value from 36.2% Q/Q. Goldman is utilizing the reduced asset coverage afforded to them combined with their reduced base fee (to 100 bps from 150 bps) to increase the Sharpe ratio of the portfolio. Management has stated that balance sheet leverage will be determined by the portfolio composition and we thus expect Goldman’s first lien exposure to continue to increase through 2019 along with D/E.
     We think NII ROAE will be flat Y/Y in 2019 but think on a risk-adjusted basis this will improve as the ROAE will be attained with a much higher composition of first lien loans.
     GSBD’s NAV/share was up 5 cents per share Q/Q to $18.13 and asset quality remains strong with only one company, Kawa Solar, on non-accrual representing 0.7% of the portfolio at cost.
     We are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $2.06 from $2.00 and our 2019 NII/share estimate to $2.09 from $2.14 and maintaining our BUY rating and $23 price target." (11/5/2018)
