+ Watch MAIN
on My Watchlist
Buying a financier at a serious premium to book value is usually a questionable decision. However, thinking in terms of 5-10 years, Main Street Capital can outperform.First, it has a shareholder-friendly setup that gives it the lowest operating costs of the BDCs I watch. All else equal, lower expenses beget higher returns. http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/09/27/main-street-capital-corporations-massive-competiti.aspxIt also has the best median credit quality, given that it is invested heavily in lower middle-market secured debt. http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/10/31/main-street-capital-the-buy-and-hold-bdc.aspxFinally, management is heavily invested alongside public shareholders. http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2013/11/17/do-your-investment-managers-eat-their-own-cooking.aspxI'm banking on above-average returns on equity to erode the book value premium over time. Additional equity issuance at prices above book value will be good for existing shareholders. The dividends will bring down the cost basis over time here on CAPS, juicing total returns.
at least 8% growth and 3% yield.
Another BDC with poor deal flow and unattractive products
On my list of companies to watch. I've never invested in a capital holding company. This would be a new experience.

Solid company, good dividend
Just collecting dividends...
Top 5 star momentum pick; outperform ratio of 232 to 7; 1/2/3 year appreciation of 50/60/120%; P/E of 9; market cap of 1.01B; analyst rating of 9.3; 5.65% div.
Main is a undervalued company with great earnings and outlook on the economy.
Monthly Div (Follow)
NASDAQ stock screener: small cap growth
Consistent div. I finally picked some up.
First thing I look at is the debt/equity ratio and Main's is good. Low beta, and low p/e. And a monthly dividend of 6.0 isn't hard to take either
The market changes so the out come of the next few weeks will lower ased on there recent sucess.
I'm too hipster for this stock. Only controversial companies can defy gravity.
They sell lots of cars and trucks, and everybody needs cars and trucks.
MAIN has consistently increased it's revenues, net investment income per share, as well as dividends that are fully covered by income.
I have no idea what this company does besides offer a monster dividend and excellent profitability ratios...
