    Yield in the spreadsheet below is based on the Q4-13 dividend. Spreadsheet header abbreviations: Div = dividend; EPS = earnings per share; LTM = last twelve months; YTD = year to date. The dividend to EPS ratio is a measure of dividend safety. Due to calendar and fiscal years failing to overlap, I also include a dividend to the sum of the last four quarters of NII - in the Div/NIIltm column. The dividend to NAV ratio is a measure of safety and efficiency. The last four columns measure the percentage change in the 2013 EPS projection and the change in the price target since the beginning of the year; the change in the Q4-13 dividend from the Q4-12 dividend. Special dividends are not included in this data. ARCC will pay a special dividend of $0.05/share payable on 3-28-14. FDUS paid a special dividend of $0.38/share payable 12-20-13. MAIN paid a special dividend of $0.25/share on 12-24-13. FSC and FULL have cut their first quarter dividend - and that new rate is temporarily encoded as a Q4-12 div to show their forward yield
