  1. For what it’s worth, deep diving analyst Nicholas Marshi (who writes as “The BDC Reporter”) gave NMFC’s reduction in required asset coverage ratio a cautious thumbs up for shareholders back in April.

    Since the cost of this financing will no doubt be higher than the 4%-ish discussed in that article, I suspect that Marshi will have a more jaundiced view of this deal as it applies to common holders; but IMHO it should not change the picture much for debt investors.

    Disclosure: I am long NMFC common but my trigger finger is getting itchy to sell it.

  2. Hi Tim, the new Duke Energy baby bonds have begun trading ($24.75/share) and the symbol is DUKB.
