  • ARCC slid -3.58% yesterday upon news on an 8 million share public offering, and this could continue into Monday's trading session.
  • Investors should read through the public offering to see if they are in agreement with how ARCC's management will allocate the proceeds.
  • ARCC delivered a beat on its Q2 EPS and net investment income, which helped position ARCC to pay its 3rd consecutive special dividend on top of its quarterly dividend.
  • ARCC has just raised its dividend again, and after it's paid, ARCC will have paid $27.39 in dividends since it went public, which is 182.6% of its initial value IPO value.
