What are Wall Street analysts saying about Main Street Capital stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Main Street Capital stock:
  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, " MAIN earned NII/share of $0.66 versus our estimate of $0.61 and the quarterly regular dividend of $0.57 which was increased to $0.59/share for 4Q18. Management guided towards lower dividend income going forward and while we think earnings will be lower than 2Q18 levels they will likely be high enough on a recurring basis to permit two more base dividend increases during 2019, in our opinion.
     NAV/share was up again to $23.96 from $23.68 the quarter prior. We expect industry-leading economic returns for MAIN of 15.1% and 14.0% for 2018 and 2019, respectively. Main Street trades at such a high NAV premium that its equity issuances, even while done on a measured, flow basis, are highly accretive to both NAV and NII.
     Main Street’s asset quality continues to remain strong with non-accruals at cost totaling $76.3 million or 3.4% of the portfolio at cost, up from $70.4 million or 3.2% of the portfolio the quarter prior. Marine Shelters and CapFusion were removed from non-accrual status but Datacom, with a total cost of $21.5 million, was added to non-accrual during the quarter.
     The LMM focus of MAIN bodes well for effective yield and NIM, both of which have held up remarkably well despite the spread compression seen across the middle market. The spread between LMM and MM loans was 300 bps in 2Q18, unchanged the past three quarters. While we expect MAIN to continue to prioritize capital allocation to the LMM, the company also has the optionality to make loans to larger EBITDA borrowers in MM and private loans.
     We are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $2.55 from $2.49 and our 2019 NII/share estimate to $2.66 from $2.57 and maintaining our NEUTRAL rating but increasing our price target to $38 from $35." (8/8/2018)
