    Note that NEWT has exceeded my original forecast of 22-26 as it has steadily climbed to 26.5. expect a leveling off with a yearly dividend which approaches $2,50 in the near future
    Excellent business operation for loan placements.

    About 10 days ago CEO said loan referrals are up 800%...Gov't stimulus virtually eliminates increase in loan losses for next 2 qtrs. By law, 90% of profits MUST be distributed...unless there is something in stimulus package that changes that. NEWT must pay a dividend. I for 1 cannot see how a company that was and most probably continues to do most of their volume in SBA loans that were 80% government guaranteed, now going to have Gov't paying principal and interest payments for the next 6 months on existing SBA loans and 100% guaranteed for the next 6 months on new loans, have a major decrease in earnings with referrals increasing substantially...I don't think the USGovt will default on their promise to pay principal and interest for the next 6 months..if there is a negative, selling the loans at a greater "margin" might be a minor issue, but should e offset by larger volume with no losses...that's my thoughts...maybe time to buy more?

    Their ppp loan department is a mess. Been trying to withdraw my application for weeks. Does anyone know who to contact for action?

    dropped 5.7 percent to $19.52. Raymond James downgraded Newtek Business Services from Outperform to Market Perform. That means they want the price down so they can buy more. This is my biggest position. I had an account at Raymond James 10 years ago and lost 40% of it's value in 6 months in what were suppose to be safe investments.

    NEWT did not reduce the dividend rather they typically have employed a base dividend that grows over the course the year at each quarter and also may include a special/extra dividend paid late in the year. As someone (poorly) explained below, the YOY dividend already announced for MAR/2020 is HIGHER by 10% than MAR/2019. And this is the initial dividend of the year (which typically grows during each year).

    NEWT in plat big-time with SBA and PPP as government open up application.
    look for a good return on NEWT. Should be 22-25 in near future with excellent dividends.

    "Barry Sloane, President, Chairman and CEO said, “We greatly appreciate the opportunity to service independent business owners across the U.S., and we are currently submitting first- and second-draw PPP loan applications to the SBA on behalf of our customers. We appreciate the SBA designating NSBF in the first lender group, which will assist our borrowers in having priority in their receipt of their SBA loan (E-Tran)"

    This feels like the buy of a lifetime w/ SBA7(a) book fully insured for 6 months + fee/ servicing income on PPP program. Looks like large insider buys from Barry and team to support. What am i missing here?

    I just bought stock today. Since it was the ex-dividend date will I be paid dividends next time around?

    3Q dividend announcement is due at any time (last on 5/11). We already know it will be significantly higher than Q2's .42 dividend, perhaps REALLY higher. They've been clicking on all cylinders this year. I'm guessing at least .49-.50 cents, about 20% higher than previous.

    Just received my Special Meeting of Shareholders 8/2/2019 proxy. OMG they are proposing to sell up to 20% of common shares below NAV WITHOUT LIMIT. ".....there will be no limit on the percentage below NAV at which our Common Shares may be sold........" This would be effective immediately upon affirmative vote of the shareholders. DILUTION ON STEROIDS If I am somehow misreading this, would someone more informed in this regard please reply? In the meantime, my sell stop's in!

    The stock is rolling over on serious volume today. I sold last week when it was struggling to move higher after owning it for over 2 years. Its done well but its trading 30% over NAV and its just gotten beyond fully valued. I'm back if it trends down around $18 or so.
