    from the release this quarter and last, we know NII isn't covering their dividend. yet gains on sales are if added covering the dividend. as a BDC they cant rely on those gains I guess so they need to guide dividend to what they earn NII. Seems premature to cut dividend but....they clearly aren't putting money to work like many others. seems to me they aren't shareholder friendly. they just like earning the management fee and incentive fee which are big $$$

    aint awful, just aint good. 21c quarterly or 10% yield roughly, seems like other ways to make out there.

    you reference what they paid in dividend, issue is did they earn it...if they didn't then they paid you from their cash balance which comes right out of the equity of the company. they lowering forward dividend because they aren't earning it. its equivalent of you have $100 in bank but you paying $150 on your loan, so you either have to dip into savings account or borrow to pay it. that is why they lower the dividend.

    Didn't make their dividend coverage last qtr. Didn't make it this quarter and now cut dividend. Also terrible co in that MGT and incentive fee income not spread evenly as they don't care about shareholders and consistency wanted. this is example of fee income machine run for management.

    others much better plays imho.
