    Don't get cocky PSEC. Just keep those steady monthlies rolling in.


    (with those tiny, tiny divvy increases you do to tease us -- but, what the hell, I'll take 'em :) )

    Hats off to a HUGE Q. Adding a Point of Sale processor at a time when mobile payments are growing exponentially should add some nice returns to psec shareholders.


    What do we expect ROI to be with Harbortouch

    Those multi-decimal placement divi's screw with my calculations.. No complaining mind you. I just am off by a few pennies every month.

    I hold PSEC because it is such a desireable stock at this time;


    - low beta
    - double digit dividend


    I bought on "speculation" after the div cut and transition to MoPay, based on the re-org plan put forth by mgmnt. My position .. and dividend stream... grows by 10+%/ annum now. For me this a diversification position from my CCC stocks that grow a lower dividend and provide capital appreciation. My goal is to retire in 7 yrs and live off dividends only.


    Monitoring closely, I so far am confident PSEC will still be part of the mix.
