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 posted NII/share of $0.50 for 3Q18, matching our estimate but significantly above the regular dividend of $0.38/share. The company alluded to potentially raising the regular dividend and we think the increased balance sheet leverage and ROE would likely support an increase. However, we think TSLX has proven to be very conservative with distributions and thus for the time being we think the base dividend will be flat with more variable supplemental dividends paid so that the company meets its required payout ratios in accordance with the ’40 Act.
     TSLX declared $1.78 of total distributions for 2018 and we expect this to be increased to $1.87 in 2019. The company will likely pay out 85% of NII for 2018 and 88% of NII in 2019, by our estimates.
     NAV/share increased again to $16.47 from $16.36 Q/Q. TSLX continues to have no loans on non-accrual status and has not had a non-accrual since 1Q17. Additionally, there are no investments ranked four or five by the internal ranking system and there have not been any since 1Q17. We think this bodes well for credit quality and thus NAV going forward. We think NAV/share will finish 2018 at $16.48 and 2019 at $16.77.
     TPG’s shareholders approved the reduced asset coverage for the company and the revolver was also amended in accordance with this. The company will reduce base fees to 100 bps on assets purchased with D/E over 1.00x and is targeting a range of 0.90x-1.25x. In a market like today it is more likely that the company remains towards the low end of this range but if and when dislocation occurs, we think TPG will utilize the flexibility of increased available leverage and originate more investments at more favorable Sharpe ratios.
     We are revising our 2018 NII/share estimate to $2.09 from $1.98 and our 2019 NII/share estimate to $2.13 from $1.93 and maintaining our BUY rating and increasing our price target to $23 from $21. " (11/12/2018)
