On May 6, Raymond James analyst Robert Dodd reiterated a Buy rating on the stock along with $15 price target.
Dodd projects increasing income from early repayments for Owl Rock and commented, “We expect repayment activity to increase in Q2 2021 (and likely remain elevated this year as the M&A market remains hot), though we are projecting a lower fee rate on those repayments.”
Consensus among analysts is that Owl Rock is a Strong Buy based on 4 Buys and 1 Hold. The average analyst price target of $14.90 implies Owl Rock is fairly priced at current levels.
