  • TICC Capital For A Sustainable 12% Yield And Upside Potential [View article]
    If an apology is in order I am sorry. However, too many folks seem to be wanting other to do their DD for them.

    I mentioned PSEC to him as an example. Also he might want to look at Factoids work in the BDC area.

    Take a look at some of John Fredriksen's companies. SDRL, SFL, NATDF etc.

    I would think that would be everyone's regret - who wouldn't want to own it @ $2.93?

    Of all metrics used to evaluate BDC's the Div/EPS ratio is one of the most important. TICC's is presently 110%. Earnings growth from 2012 - 2013 is -6.25%.

    If the NII continues to fail to cover the dividend payout, there will eventually be a dividend cut.

    TICC's NII has failed by a fairly wide margin to cover the .29 dividend for each of the past four quarters. How can you say the dividend is sustainable?

    There are several other BDC's in far better position than TICC.

    I would like FSC better if their NII covered the dividends. They pay $.096 monthly ($.288 quarterly) and are only earning $.26.

    As of the current date, EOD does not appear to be using any leverage.

    Yeah, and if the Gallup unemployment number of 8.9 is correct it will get interesting.
