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. According to Zacks Investment Research, "TPG Specialty Lending, Inc. is a specialty finance company. It is focused on providing fully-underwritten capital solutions to middle market companies. The Company specializes in standalone first-lien loans, standalone second-lien loans, mezzanine loans, unitranche loans. TPG Specialty Lending, Inc. is based in Fort Worth, Texas. " (5/10/2018)
  • 2. National Securities analysts commented, "• For 1Q18, TSLX posted NII/share of $0.50 versus our estimate of $0.46. The company generated substantial portfolio growth during the quarter with $319.2 million of originations versus sales and repayments of $115.8 million. Despite the $63.0 million of common equity issued during the quarter, D/E ticked up to 0.82x from 0.74x Q/Q to fund the portfolio growth.
    • TPG’s portfolio at fair value finished 3/31/18 at $1.91 billion, up from $1.69 billion at 12/31/17. We expect that the company will grow its portfolio at fair value to $2.00 billion in 4Q18 and $2.19 billion in 4Q19.
    • We continue to expect relatively stable all-in effective yields and NIM as TSLX continues to offer companies unique and often complex financing structures and certainty of closing that are generally unmatched by many peers in the sector. As a result, TSLX has not been subject to the same spread compression as other BDCs.
    • Unique originations such as a $550 million ABL (asset-based lending) facility to iHeart Communications speak to the differentiated approach of TPG and how the company has proven to be able to consistently source attractive investment opportunities with respectable pricing courtesy of banks being unable to compete in many of the same markets for regulatory reasons.
    • NAV/share improved to $16.27 from $16.09 Q/Q and we project steady NAV/share increases the next two years coupled with double-digit economic returns.
    • We are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $1.97 from $1.93 and our fiscal 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.90 from $1.92. " (5/7/2018)
