    You now own Ares Capital debt

    I don't think the bonds get called because they are low coupon bonds (6.88% of 2047) with duration. That said, despite the pre-merger run up in price form $16 to $19.40 I think the bonds have room to tighten further. They are now yielding about 9% to maturity in 2047. I think they have room to tighen further another 100-150 bps which would translate into a yield to maturity of 7.5%-8% or a price of 22 to 23.50 from the current price of 19.70. I bought some at 19.40 today. I think they could move quickly to my target price. Expect the Allied debt to potentially be upgraded to investment grade soon by Moody's since Ares is investment grade (BBB). They are already on positive watch.
