  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "• Main Street posted NII/share of $0.63 versus our estimate of $0.59 and the regular quarterly dividend of $0.57. We expect the regular dividend can be increased several times between now and the end of 2019.
    • The cost of capital for MAIN is extremely low, as evidenced by where the equity trades on a NAV basis and the accretion from the ATM issuance. Main Street has a significant advantage in terms of its cost of capital relative to peers and the ability to grow NAV/share through said issuance, further enhancing economic return.
    • The accretive ATM issuance, an out-earned dividend, and continued sound credit quality bode well for NAV/share and we think that this will lead to economic double-digit economic returns for both 2018 and 2019.
    • MAIN will likely not have any issues sourcing investments and we project significant portfolio growth to $2.47 billion and $2.64 billion for 4Q18 and 4Q19, respectively.
