Examining the growth prospects of this monthly dividend-paying business development company

(Published by Bob Ciura on June 14)

Horizon Technology Finance Corp. (HRZN) has a current dividend yield of 10.7%.

It is one of 416 stocks with a 5%-plus dividend yield.

You can see the full list of established 5%-plus yielding stocks here.

Horizon’s 10%-plus yield towers above most other stocks. The S&P 500 Index, on average, offers just a 2% dividend yield.

With a yield of nearly five times the S&P 500 average, Horizon has lots of appeal for income investors.

Not only does it have a very high dividend yield, but it also makes its payments each month.

See the investment prospects of monthly dividend payer Prospect Capital Corporation analyzed in detail.

Published by Nicholas McCullum on May 20

Business Development Companies – or BDCs, for short – allow investors to generate strong current income and robust total returns while minimizing the amount of tax that is paid at the corporate level.

Despite these advantages, business development companies are generally avoided by investors. This is likely due to the tax implications of their distributions for their shareholders.

More specifically, the dividends of business development companies are composed of returns of capital, qualified dividends, non-qualified dividends, and capital gains. Despite this added headache come tax time, BDCs can still be worthwhile for income

At today’s prices, there is a lot of fear already priced in. ETE is a steal.

If you’ve read my work for any length of time, you know I’m not a major risk taker. In my experience, slow and steady wins the race.

That was my rationale for recommending Prospect Capital (PSEC) in last year’s Best Stockscontest. I reasoned that a diversified private equity portfolio trading at a deep discount to book value was a low-risk investment with a high probability of generating a market-beating return. Between a return to book value and the high dividend, I expected total returns of as high as 40% within 12 to 18 months.

Well, we didn’t quite get

Insiders are buying these stocks, a bullish sign

Money talks. Actions speak louder than words. Therefore, actions involving money speak especially loudly.

That’s why it pays to keep an eye on what top corporate executives do with their own money. If they invest in their own company’s shares, rather than buying (another) vacation home, that can be a meaningful bullish sign.

At Barnes & Noble Inc. (BKS), founder and executive chairman Leonard Riggio recently spent more than $12 million to increase his stake in the company. He bought a million shares in September and now owns 11.6 million shares worth about $152 million at the recent price of

How to benefit in a bear market

Has the stock correction mostly run its course? Or are we in the early stages of a bear market? Frankly, I have no idea. There’s really no way to reliably know ahead of time. Popular bear-market indicators like the “death cross” have a mixed record at best, and strategies that reliably avoid bear markets also unfortunately tend to miss the most profitable parts of bull markets too.

If your portfolio returns depend entirely on selling to a greater fool, then this is a perilous time to be in the market. I wouldn’t want to own a highflying momentum darling

“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get”

Warren Buffett

“Price” and “value” are often two very different things. Though a single share cost more than $200,000, Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-A) is considered a value stock by many. Yet Twitter (TWTR), which trades hands for just $35 per share, is often called a bubble stock.

Yet low-priced stocks are a hunting ground for some very smart, very successful investors. Joel Tillinghast, manager of the Fidelity Low-Priced Stock Fund (FLPSX), is one of the most successful fund managers of his generation, and he invest

Part of my job as an advisor is helping my clients sort out their finances. But even though I do this professionally, I sometimes have a hard time sorting out my own finances because my expenses are out of sync with my income. My regular expenses tend to be monthly, whereas my income is mostly paid quarterly.

That’s always been a major source of frustration to me, and it is no doubt a major source of frustration to millions of retirees living off of their investments. Bonds generally pay interest just twice per year, and most companies pay dividends quarterly.

Prospect Capital Corporation (PSEC) may very well be the most hated stock on Wall Street.

And I say this as an investor with skin in the game. Not only am I long Prospect Capital both personally and in client accounts, I also have reputational capital at risk: I chose Prospect Capital as my entry in InvestorPlace’s Best Stocks for 2015 contest. As of this writing, I am suffering the humiliation of being in seventh place.

So, just how hated is Prospect Capital these days?

I entered InvestorPlace’s Best Stocks for 2015 contest with business development company Prospect Capital (PSEC). With 2015 getting off to a rocky start, I’m feeling good about my focus on income and deep value. Prospect Capital sports a 12% dividend yield and trades for just 80% of book value. For Prospect to simply return to book value, we’d be looking at 25% returns. Add in the 12% dividend, and we’re looking at 37% returns. Chip in any special dividends–which management says is a distinct possibility–or any growth in book value, and we’re looking at returns north of 40%.

In October, I wrote that mortgage REIT dividends had stabilized and that many were trading below book value.
