    Very encouraging report

    I agree. They recognized about 3% in unrealized losses which isn't much, but more than I've seen most other BDC's take for the same quarter. In the CC they said they no longer have competition and proforma returns on new loans is running over 25% (factoring in interest, fees and warrants; and presumably not factoring in current leveral of 1.5:1). No significant non-performing loans. Several non-performing loans in 2008, were resolved favorably with full collection, excepting Simpler Networks (?) which represented a realized loss of about $2.7m, or less than 1/2 of one percent of the portfolio.

    • Thanks for the additional thoughts. I will continue to keep this for the long haul, maybe buy more at this price, which is down about 30% from where I first bought.

      Would still like to understand the negative reaction today....I can only hypothesize.
