    Rose:

    Certainly, among BDCs, it is a blue-chipper. BDC Buzz, among others, almost always rates it among the top 2 or 3 in every possible category. Except dividend yield, of course, because to step up in yield one must take even more risk with the PSECs and others of that ilk. This investor says no thanks!

    To All:

    After being encouraged to do a correction by many readers I respect, I decided to do so. The article is now completely factually correct -- as it should have been in the first place.

    Thanks, everybody!

    For you, for you, for you.

    Apparently not for me!

    It sounds like you have a plan you are comfortable with, and that's as important as anything in investing.

    What you say makes perfect sense. If you have equal conviction on all of your holdings, it is pragmatic to have equal amounts of them.

    U.P.:

    Many, many investors I respect equally weight their portfolios. Lots of ways to invest successfully. Best of luck.

    Rose:

    <<That risk, like you say, is pretty much worth it for MAIN.>>

    I completely agree, and that's why I own it. But I also agree with myself (imagine the odds of that!) that I wouldn't want to own as much MAIN as I do any of my blue-chippers.

    Oh, and thanks for pointing out the special divvies MAIN has paid the last couple of years. Love 'em!

    lvmpel:

    If you are referring to the numbers next to the names in the tables, those are not dividend yields.

    As clearly spelled out in the article, those are my holdings in each company as shown by a percentage of my portfolio.

    Bill:

    I saw that this morning. QCOM had been No. 1 on my watch list but I am now going to proceed even more cautiously than I had planned to. That's a major loss for QCOM, which is still facing regulatory silliness in China.

    As for PM, it's a core position and I'm holding onto it.

    Most is in either traditional or Roth IRAs. About 15% is in taxable accounts.

    Thanks for the kind words.
