On CAPS, all 18 members who have rated TCP believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just last week, one of those Fools, All-Star drbat, succinctly summed up the TCP bull case for our community:

TCPC has been growing its portfolio, NAV, earnings, and sustainable dividends, currently yielding 9% (or 9.6% including special dividends), in a prudent manner by keeping leverage lower than most, and investing in safer types of investments with variable rates ready to take advantage of any potential rate increases. The current valuations of TCPC are lower to average compared to most BDCs. Given the favorable risk profile and decent dividend, I would price TCPC with higher-than-average NAV multiples (also using the recently reported NAV of $15.14) and average P/E multiples giving it a target price of $20.

If you want market-topping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite its strong five-star rating, TCP may not be your top choice.
