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, "• GSBD posted NII/share of $0.47 for 1Q18, a penny shy of our estimate but 2 cents above the quarterly dividend.
• Goldman is going to seek shareholder approval for the leverage increase at its stockholder meeting next month. If shareholders approve of the leverage increase, GSBD’s base fee would be cut to 100 bps from 150 bps immediately.
• The company is putting shareholders first and deserves to be commended for it. At peers increasing leverage without lowering base fees, the earnings impact, assuming similar ROE targets, is negligible. However, Goldman is doing the right thing and cutting base fees, which would permit shareholders to receive far more of a benefit from the increase in leverage.
• While the fee cut would be immediate, GSBD would likely still be under 1.00x D/E through at least 2019, making the benefit to shareholders immediate and not entirely reliant upon the company leveraging up.
• We expect the company to increase first lien and unitranche exposure and reduce second lien exposure as balance sheet leverage ramps. Even under the assumptions of relatively flat effective yields, the company stands to improve NII/share substantially given the base fee reduction and materially higher ROE.
• We are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $1.97 from $1.91 and our 2019 NII/share estimate to $2.16 from $1.95. We are upgrading shares to BUY from NEUTRAL and increasing our price target to $23 from $22 as a result of the shareholder friendly actions by Goldman and the likely significant increases in NII/share and ROE.
