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, "▪ For 1Q19 TPG earned NII/share of $0.41 versus our estimate of $0.47. Notably, total repayment activity was only $40.4mm compared to $374.7mm Q/Q. As a result, total prepayment-related income (fees and acceleration of unamortized OID) was $0.8mm for 1Q19 compared to $21.2mm in 4Q18. TPG has an average call protection of 103.4 on its loan book and we think that prepayment activity and associated income will likely recover to more average levels through 2019 and 2020. This was the lowest prepayment activity TSLX experienced in over 20 quarters. ▪ NAV/share improved to $16.34 from $16.25 Q/Q as a rebound in loan prices on the quarter led to positive mark-to-market impact on the portfolio. TSLX has not had a non-accrual since 1Q17 nor has it had any loans ranked “4” or “5”. As we approach what we believe will be an inflection point in the credit cycle, we think that TPG’s underwriting will prove to be among the most resilient in the BDC sector. ▪ TSLX guided towards NII/share of $1.77-$1.85 for 2019 which would equate to ROE of between 11.0%-11.5%. We expect NII to be towards the end of this range ($1.84/share with NII ROAE of 11.2%) for 2019 and we think that D/E will stay under 0.78x compared to the targeted range of 0.90x-1.25x. Although we expect good origination volume for TPG, we think a pick up in prepayment activity will counter portfolio growth to some degree although this would also be beneficial for earnings given the significant call protection on the portfolio. ▪ TPG announced it is amending its repurchase program to buy back stock up to 1.05x NAV as opposed to beginning at 99% of NAV previously. The company has come to the conclusion that just because the stock is above NAV doesn’t mean that repurchases are not accretive and we tend to agree. We think this is more evidence of management doing what is right for shareholders and will help further put a floor under the NAV multiple TSLX shares trade at, although that doesn’t seem to be an issue for the company. ▪ We are revising our 2019 NII/share estimate to $1.84 from $1.97 and our 2020 NII/share estimate to $2.03 from $2.15. The downward revision in 2019 is due to lower prepayment activity in 1Q19 primarily and secondarily lower expected average leverage (and thus ROE). For 2020, the downward revision is solely due to lower expected average leverage and ROE." (5/6/2019) 2.
