Most unfortunate that a number of Yahoo message boards have been turned into political propaganda boards. Too bad that Yahoo seems unable or unwilling to take the necessary steps to remove such posts/posters. The statistics in your post only serve to confirm there is an organized movement to turn this and other Yahoo message boards into Democrat Party propaganda tools.
All of my high yield stocks are invested in my IRA Accounts for which I do not get tax statements. However, Fidelity did report a dividend from Ishares Mexico which was received on 1/3/14 as a 2013 dividend.
I just read the minutes of today's meeting. Nothing short of absolutely incompetent management in my opinion. Cute how they dropped in the comment that the dividend would remain at 12.5 cents this quarter but wham, then comes the announcement that for the rest of the year, it would drop to 7 cents per quarter.. Wow, that knocks the yield on my original investment down to just under 6%. That is about half of what my other BDCs are yielding.
Here we are in the final month of this quarter, and they tell us that NO new deals have been made and that some loans have been paid off? Just when do they expect to start bringing in new business? And then to say that small businesses are getting great loan deals from banks which cuts down on the opportunities for MCGC to make new loans. Are they kidding? All I have been hearing since 2008 is that banks are NOT lending.
The other highly irritating aspect of this debacle is that no one had commented during the last quarter that things were not looking good. Instead, they drop a bombshell today. As a retired executive, all I can say is, "These guys suck, big time." Incompetent, through and through.
