Till the beginning of the pandemic, the stock was trading at a 20% premium to NAV.
With ORCC’s peers’ stocks rallying back to their pre-pandemic levels, ORCC has been overlooked and trades at a 10% discount to NAV and a 30% discount to historical levels.
ORCC continues to maintain a quality portfolio with low non-accruals that will produce a 10% yield for investors in 2021 plus upside equity returns.
Owl Rock Capital Corporation (ORCC) is a yield investor buy. Currently trading below its peers and its historical NAV at 10% and 30%, the company has equity upside plus a protected 10% dividend for yield-hungry investors.
ORCC currently pays a dividend of $0.31 per quarter and has paid special dividends every quarter since the IPO. This represents a 10% forward yield on the stock’s current share price of $13.00 over the next four quarters. Combine this with the simple 10% equity upside to NAV and investors are looking at potentially 20% returns for 2021, not to mention half of those returns are in cash. The stock’s next ex-dividend date is December 30th. This is a great time for value and yield-seeking investors to get into ORCC at a discount while the rest of the market is busy fiddling with manic stock valuations.
