BDC COMMON STOCKS

More Of Same

Guess what? Another week where BDC common stock prices went nowhere. Again, the UBS Traded Note which covers 36 of the 45 stocks in our universe, ticker BDCS, was essentially flat.

BDCS closed at $19.88, from $19.85 the week before. Outside the major markets rage up and down in price depending on their latest view on tariffs, the economy, impending war in the Middle East etc.

Up to a point, BDC prices move in tandem, but by week’s end we end back where we started. 15 stocks were up in price, and 30 were unchanged or down.

The BDC Advantage

Comparing quarterly filings, fund breakdowns and more...

 

After the 2008 financial crisis and the subsequent regulatory changes, Business Development Companies (BDCs) skyrocketed in popularity, filling the funding gap in middle market companies. BDCs are closed-end funds that mostly invest in private, growing companies and, increasingly, larger later stage corporations.  

BDCs are required to file quarterly reports to the SEC under the Investment Company Act of 1940. Aggregating the data from these reports is tedious, time-consuming, and lacks standardization. AdvantageData’s BDC Product gives investment professionals access to aggregated and standardized data (current and historical), allowing users to easily analyze data relevant to their firm's needs.
