For a second day the BDC sector could not keep up with the major indices. Also, we listened to Capital Southwest’s conference cal and identified the most salient developments.
The major indices rolled onward and upward, but the BDC sector lagged on the first day of the month. A mid-sized BDC dropped sharply in price in advance of earnings that turned out to be pretty good and another player announced a special payout for IQ 2022 already.
All the major indices were in the red on Wednesday, but the BDC sector held up better than might have been expected. News was limited to the basic details of a new transaction financed by an ever busy mid-sized BDC. We dig a little deeper and provide more background details.
September began very slowly where BDC prices were concerned, and there was no news to report. On the credit front, though, we learned more about how the bankruptcy of Sequential Brands might play out. That’s important to two large BDCs.
The BDC Reporter undertakes a full fledged credit review of Capital Southwest as of the IIQ 2021. We both look back on how credit conditions have changed since the pandemic, and look forward as well.
The rally in everything – including BDC prices – marches on. Also, two BDCs report results, including NAV Per Share trends headed in different directions and another unsecured debt offering gets closed.
The major indices break new records and the BDC sector is not far behind. We also review a new unsecured debt offering by a mid-sized BDC getting underway and have a look at the high level of deal doing underway in the market.
The new month/week began with a modest BDC price rise. However, there was shocking news from one of the most popular – and idiosyncratic BDCs – out there just as earnings season shifted into high gear.
As July began, BDC stock prices rose, with one mid-sized BDC leading the way. Also, a BDC changes its name,ticker and manager; a leading BDC amends its debt and another prepares to raise fresh capital. We also discuss ever improving credit conditions and what that might mean when IIQ results come out.
BDC stock prices resumed their ascent after a one day pause. We highlight interesting information in Capital Southwest’s conference call and provide details about Ares Capital’s latest debt offering and some other minor items.
