That’s right – Anticipating that Special dividend from Main Street Capital (MAIN) !
Main Street Capital will pay a special dividend to owners of record as of 19 December 2017 (Ex Dividend December 18) on December 27th this year. The special dividend rate is $.275 per share.
Main Street Capital is a Business Development Company that pays monthly dividends of $.19 per share and in addition historically pays a Special Dividend twice a year once at mid year and once at the end of the year. This marks the 5th year of MAIN paying special dividends of at least $.55 per share in addition to its normal monthly dividends.
MAIN is considered a top notch BDC among investors and is a great investment consideration for those that seek current investment income.
Main Street Capital is currently in two of my portfolios – Should it be in yours ?
