TCP Capital (TCPC) Receives a Buy from Oppenheimer

In a report released today, Chris Kotowski from Oppenheimer maintained a Buy rating on TCP Capital (TCPC), with a price target of $17. The company’s shares closed yesterday at $14.15.

Kotowski commented:

“Writing the TCPC earnings notes is one of our biggest challenges because on some level the reports all seem the same: every quarter since its 2012 IPO the company has cleanly covered its dividend out of net investment income and the NAV is relatively stable. 3Q18 was no exception. The company reported NII of $0.42/sh vs. our $0.41/ sh estimate and nicely above the $0.36 base dividend. The actual results versus our estimates appear in Exhibit 1 and all up and down the P&L the key line items were very close to our expectations and on trend with recent quarters. We view TCPC as one of the premier companies in the sector and have great confidence in the sustainability of the dividend (10.1%) yield currently.”

According to, Kotowski is a 5-star analyst with an average return of 9.7% and a 61.1% success rate. Kotowski covers the Financial sector, focusing on stocks such as Eagle Point Credit Company Inc, Great Elm Capital Corporation, and Fidus Investment Corporation.
