What are analysts saying about Goldman Sachs BDC stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Goldman Sachs BDC stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Goldman Sachs BDC, Inc. is a specialty finance company. The Company invests primarily in telecommunication services, electronic equipment, instruments and components and real estate management and development industries. Goldman Sachs BDC, Inc. is based in NEW YORK, United States. " (10/17/2017)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "• Goldman reported NII/share of $0.64, versus our estimate of $0.50 and the $0.45 quarterly dividend. Total repayments for the quarter totaled $167.8 million, the highest amount since GSBD went public. The combined accelerated OID accretion and prepayment fees served to significantly boost investment income during the quarter. We expect prepayments and thus fees and OID acceleration will normalize in 3Q17 although we still anticipate NII to be well in excess of the quarterly dividend.
    • GSBD had heavy realized losses of $38.1 million for the quarter largely pertaining to previous non-accruals Washington Inventory Services and Iracore International Holdings being restructured. These two non-accruals combined had unrealized losses of $32.4 million as of 3/31/17. Additionally, Kawa Solar Holdings was placed on non-accrual with a cost of $6.7 million. The out-earned dividend courtesy of prepayments combined with a 2Q17 equity offering completed at a 23% premium to 1Q17 NAV/share served to offset the realized losses and resulted in NAV/share only being down $0.03 Q/Q.
    • We are revising our 2017 NII/share estimate to $2.10 from $1.98 and our 2018 NII/share estimate to $2.03 from $2.07." (8/7/2017)
