Jade, A few things to chew on...One, SLRC price is dictated by the amount of buys vs. the amount of sells, that is it, not earnings, not dividend, time of year , nada. Even on a day where a company pays out a distribution like .60 cents, the stock can drop way more or not retreat at all and go up ! , as in have actual effect on the price...it is all truely dependedent on the proportion of buys/sells for that given trading day. Follow these trends and sentiments (ie price rise during volume change) and the prettiest balance sheet in the world may not reflect it's stock price
Another way to lock in some tidy profits is to day trade this and other bdc's as they are rising and then lock in a price when doesn't want to gamble anymore, and let your heirs fuss about capital gains or losses. If one is truely seeking dividend, buy regardless of price, if not...watch closely !
