After several days of angst, the major indices – and the BDC sector – bounced back with vim and vigor. Also, a mid-sized BDC increased its regular distribution for a second quarter in a row. We discuss what that might mean for the stock price.
All the major indices were in the red, including the BDC sector – just less so. At long last, a smaller BDC published its 10-K, officially ending BDC earnings season. Also one large cap BDC added new lenders and another made a presentation at a (virtual) conference.
The major indices – and BDC sector prices – were mixed on Monday. On the news front, a leading venture debt player raised a substantial amount of debt at a very low rate. We discuss the implications , both in the short term and long term.

BDC sector prices moved in a surprising direction given the across the board drop in the major indices. Also, we review a dividend announcement and identify potentially very good news at a troubled portfolio company of a mid-sized BDC.
