What are Wall Street analysts saying about Saratoga Investment stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Saratoga Investment stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Saratoga Investment Corporation, formerly known as GSC Investment Corp., is a specialty finance company that invests primarily in leveraged loans and mezzanine debt issued by U.S. middle-market companies, both through direct lending and through participation in loan syndicates. The Company has been elected to be treated as a business development company. " (1/16/2020)
  • 2. Maxim Group analysts commented, "SAR reported F1Q20 adjusted/core NII (excluding incentive fee accrual related to unrealized capital gains) of $0.60 versus its F1Q20 dividend of $0.55, up from $0.54 in F4Q19. SAR has now raised its dividend for 19 consecutive quarters. Based on over- coverage and management optimism regarding the investment pipeline, we expect SAR to continue to raise its dividend by $0.01/share for each quarter through FY21 (which would produce a F4Q21 yield of 10.3% on current NAV). We are maintaining our price target at $27. With: 1) a relatively low-risk strategy of focusing on senior secured, floating-rate loans, 2) a strong credit quality record, and 3) top-tier performance metrics, SAR deserves to trade at a level similar to high-quality peers, in our view. Our price target equates to 1.12x NAV (versus 1.14x previously), which is inline with high-quality peers." (7/12/2019)
