What are Wall Street analysts saying about TPG Specialty Lending stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about TPG Specialty Lending stock:
  • 1. National Securities analysts commented, " TPG earned $0.56/share of NII versus our estimate of $0.46 as a result of the prepayment of the iHeart Communications ABL which we had previously modeled to prepay in 3Q18. The company will likely earn less prepayment-related income such as fees and accelerated unamortized OID in 2H18, in our opinion, as we expect prepayments to slow down.
     It’s worth noting that TSLX had to take a reserve against $592,000 of interest and prepayment fees related to iHeart as the unsecured credit committee of the company filed an objection to income given to the ABL lenders ($0.01/share impact). Additionally, Rex Energy went into chapter 11 in May with the agreement stating that sales from the assets would benefit first lien lenders and the majority of second lien lenders. However, TPG doesn’t have visibility into the asset sales process during the quarter and they thus took a reserve of $3.1 million against the Rex Energy prepayment fee ($0.04/share). We expect TPG to recover the reserves fully by year-end.
     TSLX’ Board approved the reduced asset coverage in August available to the industry although the company will seek shareholder approval at a meeting of stockholders in the near future to try to expedite the effective date of the reduced asset coverage. The company will waive 50 bps of base fees with assets purchased with leverage in excess of 1.00x D/E. While this is better than keeping base fees static, we were disappointed that a company which is otherwise very shareholder friendly didn’t go all-out and just cut fees to 100 bps of gross assets permanently. While there will be some pull-through to the bottom line for shareholders under this structure it is not nearly as much as if the company cut base fees permanently upon the stockholders’ vote.
     We are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $1.98 from $1.97 and our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.93 from $1.90 and maintaining our BUY rating and $21 price target." (8/6/2018)
