  • Prospect Capital - Lies, Distortions And The Truth [View article]
    For what it's worth, here is the response I received from Brian Oswald, CFO:

    Thank you for your support Mr. XXXX.

    As you appear to be a close follower of PSEC, I’m sure you are aware of the yield compression that has occurred over the past two years (200 to 300 basis point reduction in loan rates) due to increased competition, This is the primary source of the decrease in returns to shareholders.

    Prospect management has taken significant steps to keep the income return at the levels that it currently is at. Those include finding new sources of debt, increasing leverage, and finding alternative investments that offer higher returns without increasing the risk in the portfolio.

    In addition, we are analyzing the potential effects of a stock buyback and plan to send the required notice to shareholders ASAP. The 40 Act requires that we notice shareholders before we buy back shares and the previous notice we had made expired in March.

    Once that notice is sent, we will be free to buy back shares. No final decision has been made regarding a share buyback. The issues to be reviewed with a stock buyback include leverage limits, S&P limits for leverage in maintaining the investment grade rating for our debt, and the alternative uses of the cash for investment, which may have better returns than the buyback.

    If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.

  • Mortgage REITs: Let's See What's Behind Door #1! [View article]
    I have an issue with your comment that "While these options won't necessarily protect you in a rising rate environment either" as it relates to PSEC.

    Read PSEC's latest earnings call. They have upside to rising rates - as interest rates rise so will their earnings because they are floating rate loans.

  • Why It's Time To Sell Baytex Energy And Consider These 3 Alternatives [View article]
    aretailguy -- The FFO per share isn't the metric you should look at. It's how much you are willing to pay for a buck and 4 cents of FFO per share. BTE trades at 10x FFO per share. The other guys mentioned here trade between 3 and 4x. BTE is a lot more expensive for a little more FFO.
