This is like a mutual fund. MCI is invested in basically small companies such as Connor flooring which makes basketball courts for colleges and the NBA. They also invest in Corporate bonds. This company has always paid a dividend since I have owned it but generally speaking this is not an investment that is going to have its stock price go up significantly. So if you are looking for a fairly secure dividend this is a good choice with current yield or 8% if your looking for equity growth you may want to shop elsewhere.
