As I recall, it was not comparing HTGC to FCH and SSP, but talking about consistency of dividend payout and the percentage being high. You are, of course, spot on with regard to the comment on whether it will stop in an instant.
This is a great company, but they are having a little bit of trouble with their capital costs right now. They said they might slow originations a bit while they try and solve that problem. So, things might now be just stellar on this call as they work thru this problem. But, all the fundamentals look good for the long haul. Buy and be patient.
