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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Main Street Capital Corporation is a specialty investment company providing customized financing solutions to lower middle market companies which operate in diverse industry sectors. Main Street seeks to partner with entrepreneurs, business owners and management teams and generally provides one stop financing alternatives to its portfolio companies. " (8/1/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "▪ Main Street posted NII/share of $0.64, a penny above our estimate and comfortably above the regular quarterly dividend of $0.60/share. For 3Q19, the base dividend was increased to $0.615/share. As a reminder, MAIN has begun to gradually scale down the semiannual special dividends and to steadily increase the regular dividends, a process they expect to be completed over a five-year period.
    ▪ Originations were seasonally slow at $128.5mm but repayments and sales slowed to $70.8mm and enabled MAIN to have net portfolio growth.
    ▪ After a volatile 4Q18 in both credit and equities, the ATM was tapped for $35.4mm of issuance compared to only $6.1mm the quarter prior. In April, Main Street issued $250mm of five-year notes priced at 5.20%. The company has $175mm of notes maturing in 4Q19, but due to an expensive make-whole provision the company didn’t want to redeem them early. As a result, we expect the facility to be paid down with the 2024 notes proceeds before being drawn up again in 4Q19 to meet the $175mm maturity.
    ▪ MAIN continues to have sound asset quality, with non-accruals at cost finishing 1Q19 at $83.4mm or 3.6% of the portfolio compared to $88.4mm or 3.9% of the portfolio Q/Q. SiTV was added to non-accrual status while MH Corbin was restructured.
    ▪ While we continue to regard Main Street as a well run BDC, the valuation is what keeps us on the sidelines. Shares closed 5/10/19 at 66% above NAV and we think such a premium prices in perfection-plus. As a result, we are maintaining our NEUTRAL rating.
    ▪ We are maintaining both our 2019 and 2020 NII/share estimates of $2.60 and $2.73, respectively." (5/13/2019)
