This article discusses two stocks that I own and one of which I consider a 'Buy and Hold' that has provided excellent returns so far in 2020.
The other position is more of a trading position with upside potential (discussed below) and currently trading at a 42% discount to its book value.
Also included are my predictions for the general markets and BDC pricing over the next 2 to 3 months.
BDC investors typically get at least 2 to 3 buying points each year.

This article is part of a series discussing how to build a retirement portfolio using general market volatility and business development companies ("BDCs"). Similar to REITs, BDCs are regulated investment companies (RICs) required to distribute more than 90% of their profits and gains to shareholders, avoiding corporate income taxes before distributing to shareholders.
This structure prioritizes income to shareholders (over capital appreciation), driving higher yields that currently range from around 7% to 13%. The following yields take into account special/supplemental dividends for 2020.
This article discusses PennantPark Investment (PNNT) and PennantPark Floating Rate Capital (PFLT) both of which were founded by Art Penn who also co-founded Apollo Investment (AINV) in 2004.
