Is this one worthy buying ?
I owned there common, but people urged me to sell it .
Is the preferred safer ?
Leo–I just bought a part position–but don’t plan to hold long term–hoping for a 1-2% gain and then out.
PSEC has a reputation for being poorly run, but I have held there baby bonds and now this preferred and from a senior security perspective they work well.
Thanks Tim, bought some shares at$24.90
24.76 7/29 @ 10:36. I am seriously tempted to “jump” 5.3% at $25.00. Math process escapes but a guess suggests around 5.5 or so. Good enough at issue says even better now???
Not sure if a BDC has ever issued a perpetual before?
At the rate PSEC puts out new issues including InterNotes, it’s a wonder they alone haven’t done 40 perpetuals by now….. ha. They’ve got 6 going on right now including a 4% note with 7/15/2051 maturity.
