  • Medley Capital: Another Gift From Year-End Tax Loss Selling [View article]
    Cahaba, thanks for the article. Nicely written.
    Buzz, your comments were right on target.

    MCC looks far more attractive at $9.36 (9:20 this am) than the $14/15 level I paid.
    My eternal optimist side has allowed me to maintain my MCC position in the face of cruel, hard market realities! Maybe, just maybe, it will return to NAV or higher (someday). Oh well, ouch, lesson learned.

  • Top 10 BDC Issues For 2015: Part 2 [View article]
    I think all investors should realize that BDC investments are high risk relative to most common stock alternatives. The very nature of BDCs lending to high risk companies and the veil of clouded financial reporting should alert investors that if one cannot afford to lose their entire investment they should consider other asset classes. On the other hand, the high risk associated with BDCs is the incredible dividend yield and payout.

    Yes, it can be a crap shoot. Celebrate when you make money and try not to whine when prices take a dive.

    Oh, and gawilley, your constant cry baby comments are SO boring.

    Thank you Buzz, Nicholas and Robin for your comments. I have to hang on for the duration with MCC. I bought near a high in 2013 and hold quite a few shares. But hey, I'm retired and have nothing but time and patience!

  • BDC Results For Q3 2014 [View article]

    I do not think it is possible to tip toe around all of the trolls and many stubborn investors that have purchased less than stellar BDCs. Rather, divulge the facts and let the chips fall where they will.

    I am an example of one such investor that chased yield and bought SLRC 3 months before they cut the dividend from 0.60 to 0.40/quarter. I've taken a bath with SLRC but continue to hang on to this albatross thinking it may come back. However, this purchase sure stimulated me to perform better DD and you are one huge reason I've bought NMFC, TCPC, PFLT, PNNT, etc. Your informative articles can save many investors from choosing less safe BDC companies if they will read the data you provide. Keep up the invaluable work!
