This 9.3% Yielding BDC Remains A Strong Buy

Posted by D4L | Friday, December 01, 2017 | | 0 comments »

Externalization proposal is off the table, according to the company’s Q3-2017 earnings release. Positive interest rate sensitivity single biggest reason to buy the stock. The company has covered its dividend with NII and DNOI in the last nine quarters, on average, suggesting that the BDC can at least maintain its dividend run-rate. Shares are far from overpriced, selling for a reasonable run-rate NII multiple. An investment in the stock yields 9.25 percent.

Hercules Capital, Inc. (HTGC) is a Strong Buy, in my opinion. The tech-focused business development company reported solid third quarter earnings and continues to cover its dividend with distributable net operating income. Further, the BDC has positive interest rate sensitivity, which could potentially result in a dividend hike. Lastly, there is no longer uncertainty regarding the company's initial proposal to change its management and compensation structure.
