BDC COMMON STOCKS

Surprising

Notwithstanding the absence of any BDC sector news, prices continued to rise for a fourth week in a row.

As of September 13, 2019 the UBS Exchange Traded Note with contains most of the 46 public BDCs we track – and which has the ticker BDCS – closed at $20.08.

That was 1.75% higher than the week before.

Likewise, that other barometer of BDC price performance – the Wells Fargo BDC Index – reached 2,793.76.

BDCS is not at a record level, but the Wells Fargo measurement – which provides a “total return” – was again at a new year-to-date high for a second week in a row.

Becalmed

There was very little to move the BDC common stock market sector in the week ended September 6, 2019. No BDC reported earnings and the news flow was pretty weak.

Denial

This was the week that the major markets decided not to worry so much about tariffs; global economic slowdown and the threat of war or military intervention just about everywhere.

As a result, the S&P 500 increased 2.79% and the other key indices moved up as well.

BDC COMMON STOCKS

Peculiar

This was a curious week for the broader markets – and for the BDC sector – pulled in different directions.

At the beginning of the week, the major indices were bouncing back from global economic concerns; tariffs troubles, etc.

However, then there was the end of week hardening of the Chinese and U.S. stance and stock market prices went to heck, and bond prices rose.

Just to provide a sense of context, the S&P 500 dropped (1.44%) on the week.

(By the way and just as an FYI, the index is now down 4 weeks in a row).

On Friday alone the S&P dropped (2.6%).

Up And Down And Across

The week ended August 16, 2019 was a volatile one for the broader markets.

The Dow Jones – by way of example –  had its worst day of the year on August 14, 2019.

Yet, when the dust settled by week’s end, the S&P 500 was down “only” (1.03%).

Still, that 3 weeks in a row to the downside, off (4.59%).
