I hold TCAP, MAIN,and FSC comprising about 1/3 of my portfolio. I have never heard any of these BDCs discussed on any investment program and I watch a lot. All of these companies are growing, have low PEs and a history of increasing dividends. Am I missing something?
2 thoughts on no respect: first off, most (not all) but most/many of the bdc's have a relatively small market cap as well as lower trade volume... just means they are on fewer peoples/traders minds and media outlets discuss less due to fewer questions concerning bdc's... 2ndly, bdc's or the bdc subsector within the financial sector is relatively new... thirdly, the divi's are great but often get overshadowed by the mortgage reit companies such as agnc or nly... i'm w/ you on the no respect thought but sit back and enjoy the lower beta and higher divis... in time we will get noticed, lets just hope both you and i have earned enough off bdc plays to retire by then. glty
