    Positive news at last. Nice to see some guidance between quarters which is much needed for shareholders.

    Yep.. now my only remaining question mark is how much of a book value loss will we see for this quarter considering that bonds have lost value. It would be much easier to estimate that if I knew the average duration of the debt investments in PSEC's portfolio.

    PSEC may very well have the best BDC management team in the business when the primary measure is old fashion make $$$ without undue risk. The one thing that the nay-sayers lose sight of is that if PSEC keeps their profit machine on the course it has been on they may eventually have to pay a big special dividend to distribute their bulging profit machine. If a special dividend id declared the shorts will lose their shirts and then some. Of course, all investors should always keep a close watch on their portfolio investments for any signs of negative change.

    The high yield business for BDC's and mortgage REIT's is tough. But PSEC appears to have some of the best management in BDC's. I also like TICC and KCAP.

    $PFLT could find a place here, too. Floating rate, monthly dividends, not quite so volatile and conservative management.

    PSEC is one of my favorites and I have a blog that is now a TOP 10 because of posters like you folks. So if interested at least check it out as we converse rather then just leave a comment. The subjects change daily and REITS and BDC'S were recently discussed.


    Hope a few of you either follow me as I use stocktalk to keep people abreast of topics and have Authors, investors, Financial advisors always on line to comment.


    Looking forward to seeing a few of you posting!!
