Check Out the Big Dividend on this Profitable Small Cap with No Debt
Harvest Capital Credit Corp (NASDAQ: HCAP) is a small cap with a big-time dividend.
A business development company, Harvest Capital Credit has a dividend yield of 8.95 percent. Required by law to pay out most of its income in dividends due to tax considerations, business development companies generally have high yields.
But the high yield of Harvest Capital Credit Corp. is made even more appealing as the company has no debt.
The company describes itself as providing "customized financing to small and midsized businesses located throughout North America. ... products include senior secured debt, unitranche term loans, junior secured term loans, subordinated debt investments and minority equity co-investments."
The company went public in May 2013 at $15.00 a share. It is now trading in that same range.
Like so many small caps, Harvest Capital Credit Corp. does not have much in the way of analyst coverage. That is a tremendous opportunity for long-term investors. The profit margin of Harvest Capital Credit Corp. is around 100 percent. Clearly that is unsustainable, but it does demonstrate the excellent management of the company and its effective operations.
The assets are undervalued, too.
Harvest Capital Credit Corp. has a tiny volume. The short ratio is miniscule as few are betting the share price will fall. This appears to be an undervalued small cap with a big dividend, that should be an ideal holding for the long term.
