    For Private Debt’s BDCs, the Worst May Be Yet to Come This Year

    (Bloomberg) -- Business development companies, the most visible pocket of the $800 billion private credit market, face more dividend cuts and possibly even restructurings later this year after the Covid-19 pandemic has bruised their portfolios.The companies this month released results for the quarter ended March 31, and the industry saw steep drop-offs in the value of investments and other headwinds caused by the new coronavirus. BDCs that wrote down the loans they own by about 6.5% ended up posting declines in their net asset value per share ranging between 6% and 30%, according to JMP Securities analyst Christopher York.Those writedowns make it harder for the companies to continue paying out as much to investors, York said. More than a dozen BDCs, including FS KKR Capital Corp. and New Mountain Finance Corp., slashed their dividend payments recently.In July, ahead of the next round of earnings “you may see some other BDCs that haven’t done so reduce their dividends,” York said in an interview. Lower dividends can punish BDCs, whose shareholders are often seeking income. BDC share prices fell an average of around 45% in the first quarter on investors’ expectations of dividend cuts.Requests for comment from FS KKR and New Mountain weren’t immediately returned.Managing LiabilitiesIn focus for many market watchers is how BDCs are contending with their own debt loads. Capitala Finance Corp., for example, said in early May it couldn’t draw on its senior secured credit facility due to its non-compliance with covenants.In an email, Capitala Chief Executive Officer Joseph Alala said the BDC has sufficient liquidity, due to its $55 million in cash and a new small business investment company license that allows it to borrow up to $175 million from the U.S. Small Business Administration at maximum leverage with funded equity.Ryan Lynch, an analyst at Keefe, Bruyette & Woods, scrutinized BDCs’ financials to evaluate how well the companies could weather the pandemic. Those that will fare best, according to Lynch, are those that have the lowest leverage; with the highest percentage of liabilities in unsecured debt, which provide more financial flexiblity; that have a high level of undrawn credit facility capacity and lower amounts of unfunded commitments.“That puts you in a better position to not only survive this downturn but also to take advantage of deals at the bottom,” Lynch said.For the second quarter, analysts will be watching to see how much portfolios recover from mark-to-market losses. Investors may be even less forgiving than they were for the first quarter.“I think the scrutiny will kick up in the second quarter,” said Richard Wheelahan, a founding partner at debt advisory firm Fund Finance Partners. “Extrapolate the themes from Q1 and increase the order of magnitude.”Investors will watch results closely for signs of more losses brewing in companies’ portfolios. This trend could play out over the rest of the year, said JMP’s York.“The second quarter you should see significant accelerations in non-accrual investment and then in the third quarter you should expect to see some restructures -- that will be the sequence,” York said.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    3 “Strong Buy” Stocks With High-Yielding Dividends

    Putting together a strong portfolio is more an art than a science. You have to balance share appreciation, potential upside, fundamental strength, and dividend yield to find the stock that will meet your needs. Do you want your investments to pay for themselves right away, or do you prefer a steady long-term gain? These are just a few of the factors to consider.It’s complicated by the sheer size of the stock markets. TipRanks tracks data on over 6,500 publicly traded stocks – and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Fortunately, the Stock Screener tool makes it easy to find the right investment. Set the filters to sort out the stocks with a “Strong Buy” consensus rating, add in ‘very high’ dividend yields, above 5%, and you’ll get the list down to only a handful of names. Here are three of them that may be worth your attention.Enterprise Products Partners LP (EPD)The oil and gas midstream sector – that is, the companies that move the product between the wellheads, storage farms, terminals, and the customers – is a profitable niche. The companies here control pipelines, railroad assets, river barges, terminals, and storage tanks, as well as make it possible to move fossil fuels. Enterprise Products owns and operates 50,000 miles of such pipelines, and controls storage capacity for 160 million barrels of oil and 14 billion cubic feet of natural gas. Enterprise also holds import/export terminal facilities on the Gulf Coast of Texas.Low prices for oil and gas in 2019 hurt the company’s bottom line last year, but EPD appears to be holding up well. Even though the Q3 numbers missed the estimates, Q4, reported last week, was strong. Revenue came in above the forecast, at $8.01 billion, while the EPS of 54 cents was in-line with expectations. Both numbers are down year-over-year but up sequentially.Enterprise is committed to sharing profits with investors, and pays out a regular – and reliable – dividend. With a yield of 7%, the dividend provides a return more than three times higher than the S&P 500 average, while the 81% payout ratio indicates that it is sustainable for the company. EPD’s history of dividend reliability goes back over 10 years.5-star analyst TJ Schultz, of RBC Capital, sees EPD as a solid choice for investors. He writes, “EPD offers investors broad exposure to a full spectrum of the midstream value chains for NGLs and, increasingly, crude and petrochemical products. Furthermore, the partnership's multi-year organic growth backlog helps provide visibility on long-term distribution growth. EPD has grown and should continue to grow its fee-based cash flows as announced projects enter service and ramp.”Schultz puts a $36 price target on EPD, implying an impressive upside potential of 41%, to back up his Buy rating on the stock. (To watch Schultz’s track record, click here)Overall, EPD gets a Strong Buy from the analyst consensus, and that rating is unanimous. The stock has received 7 buy ratings in recent weeks. Shares are a bargain considering the high yield, priced at $25.56. The average price target of $34.50 suggests room for an upside of 35%. (See Enterprise Products stock analysis on TipRanks) Kimbell Royalty Partners LP (KRP)Kimbell Royalty is another player in the Texas oil boom, operating at the source. Kimbell owns oil and gas operations in 28 states, with major exploration, drilling, and extraction activity in the Permian Basin and Eagle Ford areas of Texas, North Dakota’s Bakken formation, and across Appalachia. Kimbell’s largest area of activity, which includes 43% of the company’s active wells, is in the Permian Basin of Texas.Where Enterprise, above, saw a tough time in 2H19, Kimbell posted record high revenue in Q3 of that year. The top line came in with a 79% year-over-year gain, to $33 million. In addition to high revenues, KRP was able to acquire two competing companies, Haymaker and Phillips, during the reporting period.Even better for investors, KRP has been using its positive cash flow generation to maintain a strong dividend. The company’s quarterly payment, 38 cents, annualizes to $1.52, for an impressive yield of 11.1%. That’s more than five times the average yield among S&P listed companies, and is powerful incentive for investors.Looking at Kimbell for KeyBanc, analyst Leo Mariani was impressed enough by the company’s performance to initiate coverage with a Buy rating. He cites, “…anticipated dividend increases in 2020 and the recent pullback in the shares…” as reasons to enter this stock.Mariani gives KRP an $18 price target to back the Buy rating, seeing room for 31% share growth here. (To watch Mariani’s track record, click here)The Strong Buy consensus view on KRP shares is bolstered by 8 recent reviews, including 7 Buys and 1 Hold. The stock sells for just $13.70, and the average price target of $20.14 suggests an upside potential of 47%. (See Kimbell stock analysis on TipRanks) New Mountain Finance Corporation (NMFC)The energy industry isn’t the only place to find great dividend yields. Investment management companies, which control and administer private and corporate investment portfolios for profit, by nature generate a high cash flow. New Mountain uses its cash flow to maintain a dividend, returning profits to investors.The dividend here is definitely worth talking about. NMFC pays out 34 cents per quarter, and has done so consistently since 2013. This gives a yield of 9.6% and an annualized payment of $1.36. The payout ratio is 98%, indicating that New Mountain returns all of its profits to investors – as expected, in an investment management company.Like Kimbell, above, New Mountain has attracted a new analyst thanks to its solid financial performance. Derek Hewett, from Merrill Lynch, writes in support of his Buy rating, “We see an attractive dividend yield, and believe New Mountain is well positioned to capitalize on a supply/demand imbalance in the unrated middle market.”Hewett’s price target, $14.50, suggests a modest upside of 2% in a stock that has already shown 4% appreciation so far this year. (To watch Hewett’s track record, click here)With 3 recent Buy reviews, NMFC’s Strong Buy analyst consensus rating is unanimous. The stock offers a low cost of entry, at $14.23, and the average price target of $14.58 implies room for another 2.5% growth. The real benefit here is the dividend return.

    10 BDCs to Buy for Big-Time Income

    The market for business development companies (BDCs) just got a little more institutional.For those of you unfamiliar with BDCs, here's a quick primer. Business development companies provide firms with debt and equity capital, or a combination of the two, to help them grow. They first came to be in 1980 when Congress passed an amendment to the Investment Act of 1940 that created a new category of closed-end investment company: BDCs.For tax purposes, BDCs must pay out 90% or more of their taxable income in the form of dividends so they can retain the tax benefits of regulated investment companies.BDCs have become popular with retail investors over the past decade because of the significant income they generate. These companies often yield more than 8% on their distributions.Consider this: BDC Owl Rock Capital Corporation (ORCC) sold 10 million shares to investors during its initial public offering on July 18, 2019. This IPO is important because Owl Rock Capital Partners, who operate the BDC, founded it in 2016 with the sole purpose of meeting the needs of institutional investors. Since its founding three years ago, Owl Rock has raised more than $5.5 billion from pension funds, university endowments, family offices and other high-net-worth investment vehicles. And when institutional-caliber investors get involved, it's time to take notice.Here are 10 BDCs to consider for your investment portfolio. Just remember: Their uber-high yields come with some measure of risk. Many use debt leverage to generate their strong returns, which is risky in the first place and adds interest-rate risk into the picture. Also, the companies they invest in typically have a higher chance of default than larger corporations. But for those willing to take the risks, these 10 BDCs yield between 5.7% and 10.9%.
