On CAPS, 97.5% of the 244 members who have rated TICC believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include Clint35 and TravisCashflows.

Late last year, Clint35 listed several of TICC's positives:

Small, cheap, and under-followed. Good balance sheet. Good dividend. Good margins. Did I mention cheap? It's so cheap I'd buy it even without a dividend.

In fact, TICC currently trades at a paltry P/E of 5. That represents a discount to other small asset managers like AllianceBernstein (NYSE: AB) (16.8), Federated Investors (NYSE: FII) (15.6), and Prospect Capital (Nasdaq: PSEC) (8.4).

CAPS member TravisCashflows elaborates on the TICC bull case:

Very cheap with an outstanding dividend(and growing). Growth potential is another plus with market cap ~350M. Tends to dip down in the $10 range occasionally and that seems the best time to grab addt'l shares. Will be adding this to my portfolio soon after watching for some time now.
