                $PSEC and $FSC both suck, accepting all counter-arguments.

                              : Just makes the most sense.. $MDLY is holding up well in this market and looks like it wants to rally once the broader market D-trend calms.

                                    A tad late, but looking at he $FSC report and the numbers look okay. I wonder if $PSEC will see a similar bounce on an okay quarter.
