In a new direction for this site, I will be publishing more weekly statistics and charts. As I collect more data these charts will become more advanced and contain better information (total return as opposed to just price changes, etc).
For now, here is the weekly chart of BDCs. As we can see, the BDCR Index (my own personal one) rose by 1.4% from a level of 310.15 on 12/17/2010 (I took the 24th off) to 314.72 in the week ending 12/31/2010. The major winners were EQS (+7.48%) and TTO (+6.8%) and the major losers were TINY (-7.13%) and HRZN (-4.01% although HRZN went ex-div for 22 cents).
Companies included in the Index are: ACAS, AINV, ARCC, BKCC, CODI, EQS, FSC, GLAD, GAIN, HRZN, HTGC, KED, KFN, KCAP, MAIN, MCGC, MVC, NGPC, PNNT, PSEC, SAR, SLRC, TCAP, TICC, TINY, TTO
