$1.218 in dividends paid from PSEC last year all of which was paid prior to CSE's 51 cents. PSEC raised divvy for this year to .110015 cents per month which got me my first 2200$ today starting the new year out right. I should mention all this happened while my SP went from $8.13 to today's $11.38. I might dip my toe in CSE additional shares. It has been dead money for so long it should now begin to drift up, key word being should. Anybody with a first grade education can see the difference in the two, key words being first grade education.
I just noticed your date of purchase. I don't think you will get divvy next month, reason being is the record date. It takes 3 days to settle so your record date is the 31rst. Better check with your broker. It seems a lot of people are not really familiar with the market and therefore should be really cautious when trading. GL
Be careful about trading around the ex divvy date. I trade around an announcement that the company intends to issue more shares to make more loans. History shows a price drop almost every time that announcement is made. You have to really pay attention to the news on PSEC. If you have the ability through your broker set an alarm for notification. I have traded successfully around the ex divvy date a couple of times but only when the SP went up pretty fast prior to ex divvy.
In addition, as I have stated before, be ready to bail when interest rates rise.
