    BHN:

    I was wondering that too. He writes some good articles but others of his leave me wondering: "Huh?!?"

  • KKR is SEC's first P-E scalp [View news story]
    All in a day's work for a P-E Co like KKR. I'm sure Carlyle, Blackstone, et al have similar dirty laundry.

  • Ten-year Treasury yield hits 2015 high [View news story]
    Good points, King Rat. It wouldn't surprise me if the Fed jawbones the Sept hike and then decides on the Dec one instead.

    Agree with you that we will only see 1 hike this year tho.

  • Ten-year Treasury yield hits 2015 high [View news story]
    @Javelina:

    I believe he does have it backwards on that. However, I think PSEC (along with some others that have floating rates going) won't see the positives of rate increases until we see at least 100 basis points rise or more.

    If I'm off, someone kindly correct me please.

  • Main Street Capital Corporation A Safer BDC To Hold [View instapost]
    @Dividend Nut:

    I think MAIN is a solid choice for income, but PSEC is a lotto ticket at best. You could do a search of some of BDC Buzz' articles and come up with much better bets in the BDC universe than PSEC if you're wanting higher yields. He has listed some safer BDCs in the 8-9% yield range than are above MAIN but not nearly as risky as PSEC. Anything above 10% is in the danger zone imo.

    I'm long NMFC (as are my aunt and uncle), but there are others to choose from out there.

  • Treasury Market Is Still Pricing In A Rate Hike [View article]
    CNBC?!??

    I'll pass, but thanks. I'm not looking for cap app anyway, and I'm not interested in utes at all at the moment.

    I'm not gonna wait til someone on CNBC says it's ok to buy or posts a bullish chart. By then, it's too late.

    From 'The Sting': "If Snyder knows about it, then everybody knows about it. He never gets anything first."

  • Woolworths Will Lose Market Share To Aldis [View article]
    <So it's very astonishing that Trader Joe's is doing well.>

    Not really, when you consider that Aldi stays out of the day to day business of TJ's (and doesn't try to tinker w/ the business model) and let's us run the stores the way we know is both successful and profitable.
