    • Treasury yields are plunging, but high-yield is headed the other way again as investors mull a big selloff in the major averages and oil's plunge to below $36 per barrel.
    • The pain is widespread, but a panic in credit is particularly painful for BDCs. Hitting the tape a few minutes ago, Jeff Gundlach says "there's never just one cockroach" when credit melts down.

    • It's not just about energy anymore, according to a BAML report. "The malaise is spreading." High-yield, says the team, "[is] a slow-moving train wreck that just seems to be accelerating."
    • Equity-type proxies for the high-yield market, business development companies are under major selling pressure again today, with already large discounts to NAVs growing even wider.

    • These income producers might typically enjoy the big run lower in interest rates (the 10-year yield is all the way down to 1.94%), but it's coming alongside a continued plunge in oil (now all the way down to $47.61).

    • Notably higher for a 2nd straight day is OHA Investment (OHAI +1.9%) after SA Pro's Cahaba Research on Monday morning made the case for buying this busted BDC at a greater than 40% discount to book value.

    • "The sector's drawdown is 50% of what occurred in the 2011 euro-crisis without anything like the accompanying conditions," writes a bullish BDC Reporter, noting the sector is lower by about 14% since its February high, and stalwart Ares Capital (ARCC -3.1%) is trading at a discount to book value for the first time in years.
    • Another example is TCP Capital (TCPC -2.5%), down about 15% from a high hit three months ago. The company has paid out a steadily-increasing dividend since going public, current and future earnings are in excess of the payout, the balance sheet was recently strengthened with medium-term debt capital, the average cost of debt is 2.63%. and its investments yield 9.2%. What's not to like?
    • If the current benign business and credit cycle is indeed over, then BDCs have further to fall. If, as BDC Reporter believes, low rates are here to stay for awhile (and even if rates rise the BDC sector should prosper), BDCs are reaching bargain levels.
