Was introduced to it during the financial crisis and have been watching closely over the years until recently when I took a real stake in the company. This company has history of quality lending practices, low default rate, and at its current price a [ridiculously] amazing dividend which IS sustainable. This company has navigated the recession well and is poised to make a big move before the years end.
The high dividend makes this a great short term play, and the books, valuation, P/E, profitability, along with management make this a great long term play.
If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, MCG Capital may not be your top choice.
