Fifth Street Finance (FSC) Passes Through 11% Yield Mark
Fast forward to 5/31/2012 and each share was worth $77.79 on that date, a loss of $0.48 or 0.6% decrease over twelve years. But now consider that you collected a whopping $10.77 per share in dividends over the same period, increasing your return to 13.15%. Even with dividends reinvested, that only amounts to an average annual total return of about 1.0%; so by comparison collecting a yield above 11% would appear considerably attractive if that yield is sustainable. Fifth Street Finance Corporation ( NASD: FSC ) is a member of the Russell 3000, giving it special status as one of the largest 3000 companies on the U.S. stock markets.
We have invested nearly $1 billion this year and see additional growth opportunities, particularly in the container and offshore segments. With the robust financial position, we believe we have significant firepower for the right opportunities. The recently ordered newbuildings will be delivered in 2014 and 2015 from Daewoo’s main shipyard in Korea, who are also building the 18,000 teu newbuildings for Maersk Line. These vessels will be built to very high specifications, including high reefer capacity and the latest in eco-design features. As a consequence, our vessels will be best-in-class in terms of consumption and can be operated efficiently in a wide range of speeds, providing a lot of flexibility for container lines.
