Two weeks in a row of gains. Hopefully things are going to pick up, but the current yields on these securities are attractive. The BDCR Index gained 1.68% this past week from a level of 312.63 on 7/1/2011 to 316.56 for the week ending 7/8/2011. The major winners were NGPC (+8.36%) and KED (+7.73%) and the major losers was MCGC (-0.48%).
I will have an extended article up this week concerning dividends. It seems like the BDC companies have been in the spotlight (along with REITS) on the major news sites these past few weeks.
