There was a paucity of news affecting the BDC sector in the week ended September but developments out of the SEC could change price dynamics.
The BDC sector moved upward on the week, following the major indices renewed optimism. The BDC Reporter, though, shares its concerns about what might happen in the remainder of 2019 and into 2020.
The BDC Fixed Income market zigged as the risk free rate zagged; a Term Preferred was redeemed and we discuss who will be next and how all that capital going out the door might return later.
The broad market indices bobbed around in the week and the BDC sector followed suit. We discuss two BDCs that did well, and four that did not and project out how the rest of the year is likely to play out.
