The pick for Monday, September 24 is Main Street Capital (MAIN). We’ve traded this company three times and it has always been profitable. As mentioned before, this private debt and equity investor has never lowered its dividend since going public. Recent numbers look just fine given the current environment. The current yield is 8.2% and the dividend is paid monthly.
Simpson Manufacturing (SSD), a manufacturer of wood construction products and new to this portfolio, gets the mid-week slot. Last quarter saw a 7% increase in sales and a 38% increase in earnings per share. The current yield is just under 1%.
