There are 46 publicly traded Business Development Companies, and the BDC Reporter’s “News Of The Day” premium subscription service tracks all of them. From before the market open to after the close, we identify and read every press release, SEC filing and relevant news story about every BDC and bring you our unique blend of news, views and analysis. Nowhere else will you get end-to-end daily coverage of the BDC market – as well as full disclosure of how we’re investing our own capital – it’s like having your personal BDC analyst and fund manager rolled into one and always at your side.
We don’t just keep you apprised of what is going on across the sector in near real-time, but we provide insightful commentary from Editor-In-Chief Nicholas Marshi (see below) to help you assess what might move individual stocks and what might not. A BDC announces a new dividend or a capital raise or makes a Proxy filing or an insider makes a purchase or a sale and the BDC Reporter is there to provide context, analysis and conclusions that can help subscribers make the best investment decisions possible. This is News And Views And Analysis You Can Use.
We admit the BDC Reporter has a point of view about just every subject under the BDC sun. That’s because we’ve been full time sector investors and commentators for over a decade, and bring a huge reservoir of experience to bear on what we write and in what we invest. We’ve been a commercial lender; investment banker; Private Equity sponsor and, most recently, BDC fund manager, over a thirty plus year career in leveraged finance.

HERE’S WHAT WE OFFER:
Daily coverage of 46 publicly traded BDCs. Thanks to our own subscription to news aggregation tools we are able to keep track of every new development at every BDC, usually within seconds of publication. For every development, we list the BDC involved, provide a link, as well as News, Views & Analysis in our proprietary BDC Daily News Table in your Tools section. No other publication comes close to “covering” the BDc Sector like we do.
Multiple In-Depth Posts : We identify the most important stories and write in-depth articles 3-5 times a week in our unique combination of news gathering, analytical dissection and wry commentary. In any given month expect to have access to dozens of freshly minted articles about most every BDC out there.
Our Investment Approach Disclosed: We’re not just pundits about the BDC Sector, but long standing investors as well with millions of dollars invested. With every article about a BDC we describe our own investment approach towards their common stock and debt securities. In fact, in the Tools section we provide a continually updated Investor Watch List of what we’re invested in and what securities we’ve got on our shopping list in 3 distinct strategies we employ. This helps our subscribers make their own minds up as to what to buy, sell or avoid.
Broad & Timely: The BDC Reporter’s updates usually occur well in advance of any coverage by the financial press. Yes, we write about the stories grabbing the headlines, but we also dig into a wide range of other issues affecting BDC companies that get no coverage anywhere else. Ever.
Access To The Editor: You have a question or comment? Subscribers have access to the BDC Reporter’s editor in “live chat” mode throughout the day. We’re always available to share what we know.
Bonus Features: Every week the BDC Reporter publishes a recap of market activity for both BDC common stocks and Baby Bonds. We review price trends, highlight Biggest Winners and Biggest Losers and discuss the direction of prices across close to one hundred different BDC securities. Sometimes we bring out our crystal ball and predict what might be coming next. We also maintain in our Tools section an ever increasing number of investor resources you won’t find anywhere else including the only constantly updated BDC Fixed Income Table, listing all three dozen publicly traded BDC Baby Bond, Term Preferred and Convertibles.
HERE’S WHO WE’RE WRITING FOR
If you just have a passing interest in the BDC sector this may not the subscription service for you. Please have a look at the BDC Reporter’s free articles, many of which are re-printed on Seeking Alpha.
However if you’re invested in the sector or making plans to do so – either on your own account or on behalf of your institution – or if you’re involved as a manager, director or service provider or if you’re a journalist or academic focused on leveraged lending, we encourage you to subscribe to stay up-to-date on what’s going on across the sector and “get granular” with the BDC Reporter. We spend several hours a day generating updates and insights that are not available anywhere else and which we publish even as the BDC world turns.
HERE’S THE BOTTOM LINE
BDC News Of The Day has been published on the BDC Reporter, the leading online publication about everything BDC, for months and has become the go-to source for several thousand individual and institutional investors, journalists, regulators and BDC managers. We launched BDC News Of The Day On Seeking Alpha as a Premium subscription service in July 2017, and have been adding multiple features ever since. Those include frequent updates about our own investment approach; the always useful Fixed Income Table and an ever increasing number of other resources to help with your BDC investing.
To provide access to the widest possible audience and create a vibrant community of BDC-focused readers, we deliberately chose initially to offer the monthly subscription price at a highly affordable $50 a month (even better value if you pay $550 for a full year). In 2018 we’ll be raising our rate, so we hope you’ll sign up at the current bargain price.
HERE’S WHAT WE SUGGEST:
If you’ve read this far and recognize yourself as a potential target subscriber but are still unsure or unclear about what you’ll be getting out of the BDC News Of The Day, we suggest signing up for our “No Obligation” 14 Day Free Trial. After two weeks of our posts, investment ideas, news tables, fixed income updates, market recaps – you’ll have a very clear idea if the BDC News Of The Day is right for you. What’s more, even if you do sign up and have a change of heart you can cancel your monthly or annual subscription at any time, so nobody should feel trapped.
