CASH COMMON SHAREHOLDER DISTRIBUTION DECLARATION

Prospect is declaring distributions to common shareholders as follows:

Monthly Cash Common Shareholder Distribution Record Date Payment Date Amount ($ per share)
November 2023 11/28/2023 12/19/2023 $0.0600
December 2023 12/27/2023 1/18/2024 $0.0600
January 2024 1/29/2024 2/20/2024 $0.0600
These monthly cash distributions are the 75th, 76th, and 77th consecutive $0.06 per share distributions to common shareholders. Prospect's objective is to maintain or increase such distributions per common share over time.

Prospect expects to declare February 2024, March 2024, and April 2024 distributions to common shareholders in February 2024.

Based on the declarations above, Prospect’s closing stock price of $5.35 at November 7, 2023 delivers to our common shareholders an annualized distribution yield of 13.5% and an annualized basic NII yield of 18.7%, representing 139% basic NII coverage of common distributions.

Taking into account past distributions and our current share count for declared distributions, since inception through our January 2024 declared distribution, Prospect will have distributed $20.58 per share to original common shareholders, representing 2.2 times September 2023 common NAV per share, aggregating approximately $4.10 billion in cumulative distributions to all common shareholders.

Since inception in 2004, Prospect has invested $20.4 billion across 419 investments, exiting 283 of these investments.

Since October 2017, our NII per common share has aggregated $4.89 while our common shareholder and preferred shareholder distributions per common share have aggregated $4.32, with our NII exceeding common and preferred distributions during this period by $0.57 per common share and representing 113% coverage.

Drivers focused on enhancing accretive NII per share growth include (1) our $2.05 billion targeted 6.50% perpetual preferred stock offerings, (2) greater utilization of our cost efficient revolving floating rate credit facility, (3) increase of short-term SOFR rates based on Fed tightening to boost asset yields, (4) optimization of portfolio company performance, and (5) increased primary and secondary originations of senior secured debt and selected equity investments targeting attractive risk-adjusted yields and total returns as we deploy dry powder from our underleveraged balance sheet.

Our senior management team and employees own over 27% of all common shares outstanding, over $1.0 billion of our common equity as measured at NAV.

CASH PREFERRED SHAREHOLDER DISTRIBUTION DECLARATION

Prospect is declaring monthly distributions to 5.50% preferred shareholders at an annual rate of 5.50% of the stated value of $25.00 per share, from the date of issuance or, if later, from the most recent dividend payment date (the first business day of the month, with no additional dividend accruing in January as a result), as follows:

CAPITAL AND LIQUIDITY

Our multi-year, long-term laddered and diversified historical funding profile has included a $1.95 billion revolving credit facility (with 53 lenders, an increase of 11 lenders including our prior September 2022 extension and related upsizing), program notes, institutional bonds, convertible bonds, listed preferred stock, and program preferred stock. We have retired multiple upcoming maturities and, as of today, we have $81.24M of debt maturing during the calendar year 2024, which we intend to repay at maturity using credit facility and preferred stock proceeds. The combined amount of our balance sheet cash and undrawn revolving credit facility commitments is currently approximately $968 million.

On September 15, 2022, we completed an amendment and upsizing of our existing revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) for Prospect Capital Funding, extending the term 1.5 years. The Facility includes a revolving period that extends through September 15, 2026, followed by an additional one-year amortization period. Pricing for amounts drawn under the Facility is one-month SOFR plus 2.05%.

Our total unfunded eligible commitments to portfolio companies totals approximately $27 million, 0.3% of our total assets as of September 30, 2023.

Total Debt Repurchases/Repayments $3,247

Net Debt Repurchases/Repayments $729
We currently have five separate unsecured debt issuances aggregating over $1.2 billion outstanding, not including our program notes, with laddered maturities extending through October 2028. At September 30, 2023, $358.8 million of program notes were outstanding with laddered maturities through March 2052.

At September 30, 2023, our weighted average cost of unsecured debt financing was 4.08%, an increase of 0.01% from June 30, 2023, and a decrease of 0.25% from September 30, 2022.

On August 3, 2020 and October 3, 2020, we launched our $1.75 billion 5.50% perpetual preferred stock offering programs. On October 7, 2022, we amended our existing $1.75 billion in perpetual preferred stock offering programs to offer new 6.50% series of shares. On February 10, 2023, we upsized our existing $1.75 billion total offerings to $2.05 billion. Prospect expects to use the net proceeds from the offering programs to maintain and enhance balance sheet liquidity, including repaying our credit facility and purchasing high quality short-term debt instruments, and to make long-term investments in accordance with our investment objective. The preferred stock provides Prospect with a diversified source of accretive fixed-rate capital without creating maturity risk due to the perpetual term. To date we have issued over $1.5 billion of our 6.50% and 5.50% perpetual preferred stock programs (including $80 million in the September 2023 quarter and, to date, $32 million in the current December 2023 quarter).

On July 19, 2021, we closed a $150 million listed 5.35% perpetual preferred stock offering. Prospect used the net proceeds from the offering to maintain and enhance balance sheet liquidity, including repaying our credit facility and redeeming higher cost program notes.

In connection with our 5.50% and 6.50% perpetual preferred stock offering programs we have adopted and amended a Preferred Stock Dividend Reinvestment Plan, pursuant to which holders of the preferred stock will have dividends on their preferred stock automatically reinvested in additional shares of such preferred stock at a 5% discount to the stated value per share of $25.00, if they elect.

We currently have over $1.6 billion in preferred stock outstanding.

Prospect holds recently reaffirmed investment grade company ratings, all with a stable outlook, from Standard & Poor’s (BBB-), Moody’s (Baa3), Kroll (BBB-), Egan-Jones (BBB), and DBRS (BBB (low)). Maintaining our investment grade ratings with prudent asset, liability, and risk management is an important objective for Prospect.

DIVIDEND REINVESTMENT PLAN

We have adopted a dividend reinvestment plan (also known as our “DRIP”) that provides for reinvestment of our distributions on behalf of our shareholders, unless a shareholder elects to receive cash. On April 17, 2020, our board of directors approved amendments to the Company’s DRIP, effective May 21, 2020. These amendments principally provide for the number of newly-issued shares pursuant to the DRIP to be determined by dividing (i) the total dollar amount of the distribution payable by (ii) 95% of the closing market price per share of our stock on the valuation date of the distribution (providing a 5% discount to the market price of our common stock), a benefit to shareholders who participate.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR DIVIDEND REINVESTMENT PLAN

Shares held with a broker or financial institution

Many shareholders have been automatically “opted out” of our DRIP by their brokers. Even if you have elected to automatically reinvest your PSEC stock with your broker, your broker may have “opted out” of our DRIP (which utilizes DTC’s dividend reinvestment service), and you may therefore not be receiving the 5% pricing discount. Shareholders interested in participating in our DRIP to receive the 5% discount should contact their brokers to make sure each such DRIP participation election has been made through DTC. In making such DRIP election, each shareholder should specify to one’s broker the desire to participate in the "Prospect Capital Corporation DRIP through DTC" that issues shares based on 95% of the market price (a 5% discount to the market price) and not the broker's own "synthetic DRIP” plan (if any) that offers no such discount. Each shareholder should not assume one’s broker will automatically place such shareholder in our DRIP through DTC. Each shareholder will need to make this election proactively with one’s broker or risk not receiving the 5% discount. Each shareholder may also consult with a representative of such shareholder’s broker to request that the number of shares the shareholder wishes to enroll in our DRIP be re-registered by the broker in the shareholder’s own name as record owner in order to participate directly in our DRIP.

Shares registered directly with our transfer agent

If a shareholder holds shares registered in the shareholder’s own name with our transfer agent (less than 0.1% of our shareholders hold shares this way) and wants to make a change to how the shareholder receives dividends, please contact our plan administrator, American Stock Transfer and Trust Company LLC by calling (888) 888-0313 or by mailing American Stock Transfer and Trust Company LLC, 6201 15th Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11219.

MIDDLE-MARKET LOAN PORTFOLIO COMPANY WEIGHTED AVERAGE EBITDA AND NET LEVERAGE

Middle-Market Loan Portfolio Company Weighted Average Net Leverage (“Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage”) and Middle-Market Loan Portfolio Company Weighted Average EBITDA (“Middle-Market Portfolio EBITDA”) provide clarity into the underlying capital structure of PSEC’s middle-market loan portfolio investments and the likelihood that such portfolio will make interest payments and repay principal.

Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage reflects the net leverage of each of PSEC’s middle-market loan portfolio company debt investments, weighted based on the current fair market value of such debt investments. The net leverage for each middle-market loan portfolio company is calculated based on PSEC’s investment in the capital structure of such portfolio company, with a maximum limit of 10.0x adjusted EBITDA. This calculation excludes debt subordinate to PSEC’s position within the capital structure because PSEC’s exposure to interest payment and principal repayment risk is limited beyond that point. Additionally, subordinated structured notes, rated secured structured notes, real estate investments, investments for which EBITDA is not available, and equity investments, for which principal repayment is not fixed, are also not included in the calculation. The calculation does not exceed 10.0x adjusted EBITDA for any individual investment because 10.0x captures the highest level of risk to PSEC. Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage provides PSEC with some guidance as to PSEC’s exposure to the interest payment and principal repayment risk of PSEC’s middle-market loan portfolio. PSEC monitors its Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage on a quarterly basis.

Middle-Market Portfolio EBITDA is used by PSEC to supplement Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage and generally indicates a portfolio company’s ability to make interest payments and repay principal. Middle-Market Portfolio EBITDA is calculated using the EBITDA of each of PSEC’s middle-market loan portfolio companies, weighted based on the current fair market value of the related investments. The calculation provides PSEC with insight into profitability and scale of the portfolio companies within PSEC's middle-market loan portfolio.

These calculations include addbacks that are typically negotiated and documented in the applicable investment documents, including but not limited to transaction costs, share-based compensation, management fees, foreign currency translation adjustments, and other nonrecurring transaction expenses.

Together, Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage and Middle-Market Portfolio EBITDA assist PSEC in assessing the likelihood that PSEC will timely receive interest and principal payments. However, these calculations are not meant to substitute for an analysis of PSEC’s underlying portfolio company debt investments, but to supplement such analysis.

PRIMARY ORIGINATION STRATEGIES

Lending to Companies - We make directly-originated, agented loans to companies, including companies which are controlled by private equity sponsors and companies that are not controlled by private equity sponsors (such as companies that are controlled by the management team, the founder, a family or public shareholders). This debt can take the form of first lien, second lien, unitranche or unsecured loans. These loans typically have equity subordinate to our loan position. We may also purchase selected equity co-investments in such companies. In addition to directly-originated, agented loans, we also invest in senior and secured loans, syndicated loans and high yield bonds that have been sold to a club or syndicate of buyers, both in the primary and secondary markets. These investments are often purchased with a long term, buy-and-hold outlook, and we often look to provide significant input to the transaction by providing anchoring orders.

Lending to Companies and Purchasing Controlling Equity Positions in Such Companies - This strategy involves purchasing senior and secured yield-producing debt and controlling equity positions in middle-market companies across various industries. We believe this strategy provides enhanced certainty of closing to sellers, and the opportunity for management to continue in their current roles. These investments are often structured in tax-efficient partnerships, enhancing returns.

Purchasing Controlling Equity Positions and Lending to Real Estate Companies - We purchase debt and controlling equity positions in tax-efficient real estate investment trusts (“REIT” or “REITs”). The real estate investments of National Property REIT Corp. (“NPRC”) are in various classes of developed and occupied real estate properties that generate current yields, including multi-family properties, student housing, and senior living. NPRC seeks to identify properties that have historically attractive occupancy rates and recurring cash flow generation. NPRC generally co-invests with established and experienced property management teams that manage such properties after acquisition.

Investing in Structured Credit - We make investments in structured credit, often taking a significant position in subordinated structured notes (equity) and rated secured structured notes (debt). The underlying portfolio of each structured credit investment is diversified across approximately 100 to 200 broadly syndicated loans and does not have direct exposure to real estate, mortgages, or consumer-based credit assets. The structured credit portfolios in which we invest are managed by established collateral management teams with many years of experience in the industry.

CASH COMMON SHAREHOLDER DISTRIBUTION DECLARATION

Prospect is declaring distributions to common shareholders as follows:

Monthly Cash Common Shareholder Distribution Record Date Payment Date Amount (per share)
February 2023 2/24/2023 3/22/2023 $0.0600
March 2023 3/29/2023 4/19/2023 $0.0600
April 2023 4/26/2023 5/18/2023 $0.0600

These monthly cash distributions are the 66th, 67th, and 68th consecutive $0.06 per share distributions to common shareholders.

Prospect expects to declare May 2023, June 2023, July 2023, and August 2023 distributions to common shareholders in May 2023.

Based on the declarations above, Prospect’s closing stock price of $7.51 at February 7, 2023 delivers to our common shareholders an annualized distribution yield of 9.6% and an annualized basic NII yield of 12.3%, representing 128% basic NII coverage of common distributions.

Taking into account past distributions and our current share count for declared distributions, since inception through our April 2023 declared distribution, Prospect will have distributed $20.04 per share to original common shareholders, representing 2.0 times December 2022 common NAV, aggregating over $3.87 billion in cumulative distributions to all common shareholders.

Since inception in 2004, Prospect has invested $20 billion across 407 investments, exiting 275 of these investments.

Over the eleven quarters from the pre-pandemic December 2019 quarter to the September 2022 quarter, Prospect delivered the highest growth of net asset value per common share in the business development company industry, with NAV per common share increasing by 15.6% over that time period.

Since October 2017, our NII per common share has aggregated $4.20 while our common shareholder and preferred shareholder distributions per common share have aggregated $3.78, with our NII exceeding common and preferred distributions during this period by $0.42 per common share and representing 111% coverage.

Drivers focused on enhancing accretive NII per share growth include (1) our $1.75 billion targeted 6.50% perpetual preferred stock offerings (which could potentially be increased in capacity in an accretive fashion), (2) greater utilization of our cost efficient revolving credit facility (with an incremental cost of approximately 5.91% at today’s one month SOFR), (3) increase of short-term Libor and SOFR rates based on Fed tightening to boost asset yields, and (4) increased primary and secondary originations of senior secured debt and selected equity investments targeting attractive risk-adjusted yields and total returns as we deploy dry powder from our underleveraged balance sheet.

Our senior management team and employees own approximately 28% of all common shares outstanding, approximately $1.1 billion of our common equity as measured at NAV.

To date we have exited 11 subordinated structured notes with an expected pooled average realized gross IRR of 15.2% and cash on cash multiple of 1.44 times.

Since December 31, 2017 through today, 32 of our subordinated structured note investments have completed multi-year extensions of their reinvestment periods (typically at reduced liability spreads and increased weighted average life asset benefits). We believe further long-term optionality upside exists in our structured credit portfolio through additional refinancings and reinvestment period extensions.


CAPITAL AND LIQUIDITY

Our multi-year, long-term laddered and diversified historical funding profile has included a $1.70 billion revolving credit facility (with 49 lenders, an increase of 7 lenders including our prior September 2022 extension and related upsizing), program notes, institutional bonds, convertible bonds, listed preferred stock, and program preferred stock. We have retired multiple upcoming maturities and as of today we have $282,115 of debt maturing in calendar year 2023. The combined amount of our balance sheet cash and undrawn revolving credit facility commitments is currently over $1 billion.

On September 15, 2022, we completed an amendment and upsizing of our existing revolving credit facility (the “Facility”) for Prospect Capital Funding, extending the term 1.5 years. The Facility includes a revolving period that extends through September 15, 2026, followed by an additional one-year amortization period. Pricing for amounts drawn under the Facility is one-month SOFR plus 2.05%.

Our total unfunded eligible commitments to non-control portfolio companies totals approximately $84 million, 1.1% of our total assets as of December 31, 2022.

At December 31, 2022, our weighted average cost of unsecured debt financing was 4.33%, remaining constant from September 30, 2022, and a decrease of 0.06% from December 31, 2021.

On August 3, 2020 and October 3, 2020, we launched our $1.75 billion 5.50% perpetual preferred stock offering programs. On October 7, 2022, we amended our existing $1.75 billion in perpetual preferred stock offering programs to offer new 6.50% series of shares. Prospect expects to use the net proceeds from the offering programs to maintain and enhance balance sheet liquidity, including repaying our credit facility and purchasing high quality short-term debt instruments, and to make long-term investments in accordance with our investment objective. The preferred stock provides Prospect with a diversified source of accretive fixed-rate capital without creating maturity risk due to the perpetual term. To date we have issued over $1.2 billion of our 6.50% and 5.50% perpetual preferred stock programs (including $298 million in the December 2022 quarter and, to date, $70 million in the current March 2023 quarter), with the ability potentially to upsize such programs based on significant balance sheet capacity.

On July 19, 2021, we closed a $150 million listed 5.35% perpetual preferred stock offering. Prospect used the net proceeds from the offering to maintain and enhance balance sheet liquidity, including repaying our credit facility and redeeming higher cost program notes.

In connection with the 5.50% perpetual preferred stock offering program, effective August 3, 2020 and as amended on June 9, 2022, we adopted and amended, respectively, a Preferred Stock Dividend Reinvestment Plan, pursuant to which holders of the preferred stock will have dividends on their preferred stock automatically reinvested in additional shares of such preferred stock at a price per share of $25.00, if they elect.

In connection with the 6.50% perpetual preferred stock offering program, effective October 7, 2022 we adopted a Preferred Stock Dividend Reinvestment Plan, pursuant to which holders of the preferred stock will have dividends on their preferred stock automatically reinvested in additional shares of such preferred stock at a price per share of $25.00, if they elect.

We currently have approximately $1.4 billion in preferred stock outstanding.

Prospect holds recently reaffirmed investment grade company ratings, all with a stable outlook, from Standard & Poor’s (BBB-), Moody’s (Baa3), Kroll (BBB-), Egan-Jones (BBB), and DBRS (BBB (low)). Maintaining our investment grade ratings with prudent asset, liability, and risk management is an important objective for Prospect.

DIVIDEND REINVESTMENT PLAN

We have adopted a dividend reinvestment plan (also known as our “DRIP”) that provides for reinvestment of our distributions on behalf of our shareholders, unless a shareholder elects to receive cash. On April 17, 2020, our board of directors approved amendments to the Company’s DRIP, effective May 21, 2020. These amendments principally provide for the number of newly-issued shares pursuant to the DRIP to be determined by dividing (i) the total dollar amount of the distribution payable by (ii) 95% of the closing market price per share of our stock on the valuation date of the distribution (providing a 5% discount to the market price of our common stock), a benefit to shareholders who participate.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE IN OUR DIVIDEND REINVESTMENT PLAN

Shares held with a broker or financial institution

Many shareholders have been automatically “opted out” of our DRIP by their brokers. Even if you have elected to automatically reinvest your PSEC stock with your broker, your broker may have “opted out” of our DRIP (which utilizes DTC’s dividend reinvestment service), and you may therefore not be receiving the 5% pricing discount. Shareholders interested in participating in our DRIP to receive the 5% discount should contact their brokers to make sure each such DRIP participation election has been made through DTC. In making such DRIP election, each shareholder should specify to one’s broker the desire to participate in the "Prospect Capital Corporation DRIP through DTC" that issues shares based on 95% of the market price (a 5% discount to the market price) and not the broker's own "synthetic DRIP” plan (if any) that offers no such discount. Each shareholder should not assume one’s broker will automatically place such shareholder in our DRIP through DTC. Each shareholder will need to make this election proactively with one’s broker or risk not receiving the 5% discount. Each shareholder may also consult with a representative of such shareholder’s broker to request that the number of shares the shareholder wishes to enroll in our DRIP be re-registered by the broker in the shareholder’s own name as record owner in order to participate directly in our DRIP.

Shares registered directly with our transfer agent

If a shareholder holds shares registered in the shareholder’s own name with our transfer agent (less than 0.1% of our shareholders hold shares this way) and wants to make a change to how the shareholder receives dividends, please contact our plan administrator, American Stock Transfer and Trust Company LLC by calling (888) 888-0313 or by mailing American Stock Transfer and Trust Company LLC, 6201 15th Avenue, Brooklyn, New York 11219.

MIDDLE-MARKET LOAN PORTFOLIO COMPANY WEIGHTED AVERAGE EBITDA AND NET LEVERAGE

Middle-Market Loan Portfolio Company Weighted Average Net Leverage (“Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage”) and Middle-Market Loan Portfolio Company Weighted Average EBITDA (“Middle-Market Portfolio EBITDA”) provide clarity into the underlying capital structure of PSEC’s middle-market loan portfolio investments and the likelihood that PSEC’s overall portfolio will make interest payments and repay principal.

Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage reflects the net leverage of each of PSEC’s middle-market loan portfolio company debt investments, weighted based on the current fair market value of such debt investments. The net leverage for each middle-market loan portfolio company is calculated based on PSEC’s investment in the capital structure of such portfolio company, with a maximum limit of 10.0x adjusted EBITDA. This calculation excludes debt subordinate to PSEC’s position within the capital structure because PSEC’s exposure to interest payment and principal repayment risk is limited beyond that point. Additionally, subordinated structured notes, other structured credit, real estate investments, investments for which EBITDA is not available, and equity investments, for which principal repayment is not fixed, are also not included in the calculation. The calculation does not exceed 10.0x adjusted EBITDA for any individual investment because 10.0x captures the highest level of risk to PSEC. Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage provides PSEC with some guidance as to PSEC’s exposure to the interest payment and principal repayment risk of PSEC’s overall debt portfolio. PSEC monitors its Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage on a quarterly basis.

Middle-Market Portfolio EBITDA is used by PSEC to supplement Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage and generally indicates a portfolio company’s ability to make interest payments and repay principal. Middle-Market Portfolio EBITDA is calculated using the EBITDA of each of PSEC’s middle-market loan portfolio companies, weighted based on the current fair market value of the related investments. The calculation provides PSEC with insight into profitability and scale of the portfolio companies within our overall debt investments.

These calculations include addbacks that are typically negotiated and documented in the applicable investment documents, including but not limited to transaction costs, share-based compensation, management fees, foreign currency translation adjustments and other nonrecurring transaction expenses.

Together, Middle-Market Portfolio Net Leverage and Middle-Market Portfolio EBITDA assist PSEC in assessing the likelihood that PSEC will timely receive interest and principal payments. However, these calculations are not meant to substitute for an analysis of PSEC’s our underlying portfolio company debt investments, but to supplement such analysis.


PRIMARY ORIGINATION STRATEGIES

Middle-Market Lending - We make directly-originated, agented loans to companies, including companies which are controlled by private equity sponsors and companies that are not controlled by private equity sponsors (such as companies that are controlled by the management team, the founder, a family or public shareholders). This debt can take the form of first lien, second lien, unitranche or unsecured loans. These loans typically have equity subordinate to our loan position. We may also purchase selected equity co-investments in such companies. In addition to directly-originated, agented loans, we also invest in senior and secured loans, syndicated loans and high yield bonds that have been sold to a club or syndicate of buyers, both in the primary and secondary markets. These investments are often purchased with a long term, buy-and-hold outlook, and we often look to provide significant input to the transaction by providing anchoring orders.

Middle-Market Lending / Buyout - This strategy involves purchasing senior and secured yield-producing debt and controlling equity positions in operating companies across various industries. We believe this strategy provides enhanced certainty of closing to sellers, and the opportunity for management to continue in their current roles. These investments are often structured in tax-efficient partnerships, enhancing returns.

Real Estate - We purchase debt and controlling equity positions in tax-efficient real estate investment trusts (“REIT” or “REITs”). The real estate investments of National Property REIT Corp. (“NPRC”) are in various classes of developed and occupied real estate properties that generate current yields, including multi-family properties, student housing, and self-storage. NPRC seeks to identify properties that have historically attractive occupancy rates and recurring cash flow generation. NPRC generally co-invests with established and experienced property management teams that manage such properties after acquisition.

Subordinated Structured Notes - We make investments in structured credit, often taking a significant position in subordinated structured notes (equity) and rated secured structured notes (debt). The underlying portfolio of each structured credit investment is diversified across approximately 100 to 200 broadly syndicated loans and does not have direct exposure to real estate, mortgages, or consumer-based credit assets. The structured credit portfolios in which we invest are managed by established collateral management teams with many years of experience in the industry.

The last time the banks said to sell PSEC I sold 5,000 Shares and it went from $5.40 to over 8 or 9 dollars. I’ll hold and buy on the way down. The best thing is to own this company for the long haul. Maket Cap was 2 Billion now it’s 3 Billion.

Dropping mostly for the reason major banks are dropping... higher interest rates and troublesome loans. You don't want to be in BDCs in a major recession. Note that they are more leveraged than in the past

This stock has been around quite a few years I’ve owned it twice. Sorry I sold it in the $5.00 area..Originally held 5,000 shares paying 13 %. Now I just bought 100 shares at $ 8.00 I wouldn’t recommend buying above 8 because at 8 it’s paying 9% price. I won’t buy now unless it drops below 8 it’s been down to $4.50 area. At that price it was paying 16 %. It was a steal at that price and I didn’t buy it because I though they suspended the dividend I was wrong. I went to finance.yahoo and forgot to click on dividend twice so it didn’t show it was paying the dividend because stupid me didn’t look for it correctly. That was the biggest mistake I made about 2 years ago. 5,000 shares paying 300 dollars a month. $22,500. Pay back would have been 6.25 years at .72 cent a year dividend. It’s a great stock at the right price. So buy some at $8 dollars. Wait for it to fall back and keep adding. Cost average down

They seem well run and I was not really in it for a dividend.

I hope I am back in when they decide to raise it as dividend seekers will flood back. I liked the swing trade method and monthly coupon.

Near 75% gain on annual basis with 12k in the bank.

Sounds like you are doing well.

There is no place to make the kind of money you can in monthly dividend stocks aside from penny runners.

You have to do some thinking on these monthly dividend stocks. And some thinking in the penny stocks. But in the monthly dividend stocks you can make over 250% per year in the monthly dividend stocks and you can make 1000's of percent gains in a penny runner. Chart reading is important.

As long as the account is going up....

The Cornerstone funds are amazing too!

Keep up the good work.

S&P 500® Index +31.29%
Dow Jones U.S. Total Stock Market Index +35.50%

My accounts for the same period

Brokerage acct +56.98%
IRA +42.36%

I expect the accounts in TDAMTD are similar.

As interest rates rise I will change some allocations- I know how to do that- I've been there before.

I obviously tolerate a much higher risk than you do. That's not necessarily a bad thing as long as I pay attention. And I have to pay attention daily because I also manage accounts for other family members and they would not be happy with me if their accounts lost money.

All PSEC holdings are quite small in comparison to other positions.

I track short term corp bonds and intermediate term corp bonds. Both have been tumbling for the past month. Vanguard's Intermediate Term Corp Bond index fund is off 0.55% today alone. That's a nasty drop for something that yields almost zilch.

Again, we see there's nothing dumber than "reaching for yield." (well, I guess playing penny stocks may be dumber!)

Stuff like PSEC can be very dangerous amid rising interest rates. At minimum, diversify intelligently.

Few IHUBers were competent investors, and I can't think of one of them who is still active. Most remaining IHUBers are gambling addicts or shills. Only exception would be some bashers on the DD board, and not many of them have real money.

I'm quite different... a retired lawyer. My son is a CPA. Good Luck

I could have had it in one of the accounts that I manage as a trader. None of my personal accounts had it at before 9/17.

All stocks have risk. Some just have less than others. I'm sure I don't own even one that you would approve of and PSEC is far from my highest risk.

Fortunately for me- I have a high risk tolerance and I make more money than we need. And that's the name of the game.

You had PSEC in 2016, as well as May 2017 when you posted the quote at the bottom. What bothers me about about these ultra high yield stocks is the lack of of discussion of leverage and risk. And most BDCs are risky. Retirees, especially, should be very careful.

But I didn't. My first buy was 9/17.
My overall ROI today- exclusive of dividends- is 15.7%

Now go away.

Use This Simple Calculator To Test PSEC Over_a_Decade. If you had put $10,000 into PSEC on 3/11/2011 and compounded the payouts, you'd now have $20,900, or a Average Annual Total Return of 7.64%.

Without compounding, you'd end up with ~$14,700, an Average Annual Total Return of 3.96%. That's a stinky result during the greatest stock bull market in history.

Serious skill required...
I have 2500 PSEC left since flipping it 4 times... $3.40 cost per share. 10% for sale at $7.99

GLTA!

I still have no idea why you find it necessary to post on stock boards where you have no shares and preach as if you're smarter than every other investor on the board.

Go back to your blue chips.

Over long periods, PSEC lagged the S&P even counting dividends. Not much of an investment during this current roaring bull market.

I am awful with pennies so I avoid them. However I'm very good with Divi stocks and tech. I make good money and that's all that matters.

I say that all the time.

As long as you're making money.

After that it is what percentage money are you making?
How can you make higher returns?
How high is the risk? Rewards?

I'm doing great. Very happy with my system.

I only really post on my penny plays here on Ihub. I enjoy them.

For instance, I got into VNUE in the trips. Penny plays are fun. I also got into FPVD in the trips. But the risk is higher. And you better know what you are doing. LOL

But yeah, make money.

It doesn't matter how you make money- just that you do.
Not everyone agrees with that, though.

The only thing more lucrative than playing monthly dividend stocks properly is a penny runner.

1000's of percent gains in a good penny runner.

I make 240% + compounding on dividend stocks annually.

There is a ton of money to be made in monthly and quarterly dividend stocks if played correctly.

Ultra high pay stocks or ETFs are often sucker gimmicks targeting unsophisticated old geezers desperate for income. Over a period of several years, one will likely do better in blue chips with market rate yields that grow. Beware BDCs, mREITS, MLPs that use high leverage (i.e. high debt) to juice their payouts.

Also diversify because you can expect a fair number of high yield stocks to fail in tough times. No frills index funds such as DIA or SPY provide safe and growing dividends.

See my two divi boards:

MONTHLY DIVIDEND STOCKS

QUARTERLY DIVIDEND STOCKS

Most of the research done by me or the other posters on the board.

Always looking for another set of eyes to find good to high paying divi companies.
