Better Buy: Prospect Capital vs. Sirius XM

In today's quarter-final matchup of The Motley Fool Better-Buy Tournament, Prospect Capital  squares off against Sirius XM in a battle to determine which stock is the better buy now. The 64-company tournament pits two Motley Fool analysts against each other as they make the case for their stocks, with the winner determined by you, the readers.

Motley Fool Financials analyst David Hanson believes Prospect Capital (NASDAQ: PSEC  ) should move on to the next round thanks to a largest investment portfolio that has excellent credit quality. Prospect Capital's BDC structure allows it to pass earnings through to shareholders which results in a big dividend yield. Finally, David sees Prospect's large size and scale as a big advantage when it comes to finding new investments and getting favorable prices. 

With the recent breaking news of John Malone dropping his bid for Sirius XM (NASDAQ: SIRI  ) , long-term shareholders have reason to cheer: this lucrative business will continue to monopolize the satellite radio space and shareholders can participate directly. At 25 million paid subscribers and growing, Sirius should continue to leverage its massive user base to drive increased profit. With $0.17 of every sales dollar flowing through as free cash and the ability to determine its own destiny, Motley Fool analyst Michael Finarelli believes Sirius is a great way to gain exposure in this cash-rich market.
