    Agree. Just bought some the other day for my IRA and will buy more for my ordinary account.

    Why buy at a time of declining earning?

    PSEC is the symbol of Prospect Capital, not Prospect Energy.

    To VANSTRAT: Buying when the analysts are wrong on their predicted earnings for a company, thus driving the share price down, presents a buying opportunity for the savvy investor as long as the fundamentals warrant it.
