Prospect Capital Targeting Higher ROE on New Investment Pipeline

Prospect Capital Targeting Higher ROE on New Investment Pipeline
Market Realist

Prospect Capital (PSEC) is valued at a lower valuation than its competitors and the broader market (SPY). The company is looking to raise funds through the select sale of equity stakes and spin-offs of profitable divisions in a bid to expand the business. If the stock rises, the company can take another look at its equity dilution strategy.

Prospect has had an average ROE (return on equity) of 9.5% over the past five years compared to the industry average of 7.3%. Here’s how a few of the company’s competitors in the investment management sector fared in terms of ROE:

  • KKR & Co. (KKR): 12.5%
  • Ares Capital (ARCC): 11.2%
  • BlackRock Capital Investment (BKCC): 18.4%
Prospect Capital is targeting spin-offs for its three divisions, including online business, structured credit, and real estate. The company will dispose of one or more of these divisions if it has higher valuations. These investments make up approximately 10.0% of its total asset base. Its spin-offs are subject to approval based on target valuations as well as regulatory approvals.

Balance sheet strength
Prospect Capital is continuing with a marginally higher leverage than the industry average. Any further rise could lead to a higher risk perception from investors. The company is targeting an improved capital position and thus its balance sheet strength. It’s seeking to raise funds through the partial or full disposition of its subdivisions.

Prospect managed higher net originations in the September quarter on the back of good investment opportunities. The company has deployed more than $350.0 million in new strategies, forming part of its advanced investment pipeline. It’s targeting new areas of investment to improve yield and diversify investments.

In the next part of this series, we’ll examine Prospect’s dividends, repurchases, and valuations.

Business Idea: Dropshipping Profit: $2,000 - $30,000 per month
Want to earn 6-7 figures a year? Why not try dropshipping! They are already hundreds and thousands of successful dropship entrepreneurs earning millions a year. And most of these entrepreneurs ordered products from AliExpress and sold it double at their online shop.

Did you know that most of the AliExpress/Alibaba items are sold on Amazon and eBay, and not only those that are delivered from China? AliExpress is the retail arm of Alibaba, the wholesaler. I've been looking at reviews and sales numbers for AliExpress items on eBay and Amazon to give me a superior thought of what sells best in USA and UK.
