Just one item is missing in Owl Rock’s favorable IIQ 2020 results, says the BDC Reporter after reading the press release. Coming up shortly: an in-depth review.

Owl Rock Capital is preparing to pitch a new unsecured debt offering, according to a filing. The BDC Reporter reviews the BDC’s current debt level and liquidity and guesses what the amount to be raised and pricing might look like. Finally, we place this putative issue in the broader context of BDC access to the debt markets in the post-Covid period.
“What goes up will come down” as BDC sector prices proved this week as volatility resumed.

BDC Fixed Income prices reach a new high in the first full week of 2020. We discuss the details. Plus, we review one redemption and two new issuances of unsecured debt that may foretell what will be coming down the pike for the sector as a whole.
First few days of 2020 for the BDC sector, whose rally seems to be in neutral. Most of the news developments in the period were on the credit front.
The holiday shortened Christmas week was also the last full week of the year for the BDC sector. We recap where prices went in the few days the market was open and look back over the year as a whole.

First week of BDC earnings season and the sector moved up in price, but so did the broader indices. We review our regular metrics and several BDC winners and losers from a price standpoint and identify who might move markets in the weeks ahead.
