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. " (4/10/2019)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, " For 4Q18, MAIN posted NII/share of $0.69, beating our estimate of $0.60 and the consensus estimate of $0.62. Compensation expense declined to $2.0mm from $5.8mm Q/Q due to one-time reductions in this line item. In our model, this had a $0.07/share impact on NII.
     NAV/share declined Q/Q to $24.09 from $24.69 but was up Y/Y from $23.53. Given the significant stock market volatility during the quarter, MAIN only tapped its ATM for $6.1mm. As a result of spread widening, Main Street’s MM (middle market) book depreciated by $26.6mm Q/Q and the PL (private loan) book by $17.9mm. LMM (lower middle market) investments appreciated by $21.0mm on the quarter.
     We do think that LMM book should have also been written down from wider spreads, however, as the risk premium in the market clearly went up as evidenced by the average bid on the LSTA index declining by 5.8% in 4Q18. Additionally, the significant equity investments should have also been written down in general given the stock market had one of the worst Decembers on record.
     We expect Main Street to maintain sound asset quality and think that the positive feedback loop of issuing shares via its ATM at substantial premiums to NAV should bode well for NAV increases going forward. These factors are why we continue to expect low-teens economic returns for the company although we think shares near fair value.
     We are revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $2.60 from $2.63 and are rolling out our 2020 NII/share estimate of $2.73. We are maintaining our NEUTRAL rating and our $38 price target." (3/4/2019)
