    • Lower interest rates hadn't really helped one of income players' favorite sectors as they were accompanied by the plunge in oil prices, and worry about what blowups were lurking in BDC portfolios.
    • So even with the 10-year Treasury yield higher by 11 basis points to 1.78% today, oil's now more than 20% run higher in the past few sessions looks to be easing some of those credit concerns, and alongside the rally in BDCs is a nice move higher in junk bonds (HYG +0.6%), (JNK +0.6%).
    • Individual names: Prospect Capital (PSEC +2.3%), Fifth Street Finance (FSC +3%), FS Investment (FSIC +1.6%), Main Street Capital (MAIN +2.4%), Apollo Investment (AINV +3%), Triangle Capital (TCAP +2.7%), TICC Capital (TICC +3%), PennantPark Investment (PNNT +3.8%), THL Credit (TCRD +3.5%), Golub Capital (GBDC +1.9%).
