Maxim Group Sticks to Its Hold Rating for THL Credit (TCRD)

Maxim Group analyst Michael Diana maintained a Hold rating on THL Credit (TCRD) today. The company’s shares opened today at $7.67, close to its 52-week low of $7.31.

Diana commented:

“TCRD is making good progress on its transition toward first-lien senior- secured loans to PE-sponsored companies (core assets), and away from more junior positions in unsponsored companies, but still has more work to do. Therefore, we maintain our Hold rating. We expect TCRD to maintain its dividend at the current level – $0.27 per quarter, which is yielding 14.7% on an annualized basis – throughout 2019 (with the help of a full waiver of incentive fees from its investment advisor through 1H19), thereby providing support for its shares. We introduce 2019 dividend and EPS estimates of $1.08.”

According to, Diana is a 4-star analyst with an average return of 4.4% and a 55.7% success rate. Diana covers the Financial sector, focusing on stocks such as Manhattan Bridge Capital Inc, Arlington Asset Investment, and Westamerica Bancorporation.
