Should be due a dividend announcement going by the dates in last few years .anytime in the next week. Appears a lot of interest around auction time on the hour but otherwise not much. My dividend does come converted into £ .
To give you some idea of the volatility that is possible, back in the financial crisis of 2008, GLIF (which once held a CLO portfolio they offloaded to FAIR), sunk down to 1.5p a share at one point, with all dividends stopped. Then with the recovery it went to 45p with dividend restored. With the covid fall in March last year I kept an eye on this sector in case the same opportunity arose but it never got remotely close to such dramas.
Thank you for you considered response.which is very enlightening and interesting. Take your points re time to buy. It is a the present time trading at a discount of around 10% to market value. This is what drew me and the “yield” I see a few more traded today. As I said not a big number here for me ,so I am probably thinking of keeping for 3 months to see how it does. Just wondering if the divi is paid in euros?as not quite sure how much that will cost to change to Sterling.if that is the case I may sell and rebuy depending how I am doing the day before closing,as I don’t rethink I want paid small amounts in euros. There are some interesting discussions on these boards regarding “yield” shares,so thank you for sharing.
This is not a growth share, because really the underlying are complex leverage structures of loans: Loan upside (like any debt) is capped at the amount of interest generated by the loan. BGLF, similar to CIFU, VTA, FAIR and a few others, are leverage position on corporate loans/ debt. If the market value of the loans goes down, due to leverage, the market value of BGLF will go down faster (eg feb march 2020). If loans are defaulting, then reduced income will be received by BGLF, which will then likely trigger a decline in price. so all in all, when the macro economy is doing well, you will get a nice dividend, but with a recession, the market value of bglf will go down. The best time to buy this is quite likely just after a crash (dividend increase and market value increase)
Thanks for that .very informative. And yes I agree with what you say regarding terry smith . I have taken a small position here.Just to see how it goes.under not a big deal for me. I appreciate your frankness in the reply.
I guess I should reply having done the first post here in 2015. I quit this share a couple of years ago. One thing you notice with these high yielders is that eventually something negative will happen, either the yield is cut or the company assets shrink. The share price is about a quarter down from where it was in 2015. It is a similar story across other shares I've held for high yield and as a result I've come to appreciate the views of Terry Smith, that holding for yield is nuts and you should go for growth and skim some off if you want to take an income. I still hold a few income shares where I expect a little growth, like HFEL and BATS, but I wouldn't buy this again.
Anyone else in this share . I see it near the top of the dividend list. Have to say from reading the 72pages it looks filled with data and complicated to me. However the dividend is good .
This is an odd one. The company are buying back shares, ostensibly to help reduce the discount at which they trade. IMO the 6% dealing spread may be a major contributor to the discount, seems ludicrous for a company of this size ??

AR out: COVID-19 Analysis GSO has conducted a detailed, bottom-up review of all c. 970 global companies within its portfolios to determine the potential impact of COVID-19 on the performance of these businesses. GSO focused not only on those sectors that have been directly impacted by COVID-19, including hotels, gaming and leisure, transportation, retail, automotive, and energy, but the entire universe of industries within its portfolios. The objective of the analysis was to determine the financial performance of the companies and loans within BGCF's CLO portfolio and the resulting likelihood of negative credit rating migration and/or default for each loan in which we hold a position, as well as expected timing of these events. The loan by loan analysis was then applied on a probability weighted basis to each portfolio and run through the respective CLO structures in an attempt to forecast the impact on BGCF's CLO investments. The results of this exercise have allowed GSO to consider the likely impact on cash flows generated by the Company's investments in directly held CLOs and those held indirectly through BGCF. This impact assessment has enabled the Board and GSO to assess the sustainability of the Company's dividend in the short-term. The medium- and long-term impacts of the global pandemic remain uncertain. However, in the short-term, rating agency downgrades and corporate defaults of companies within GSO's portfolios may lead to temporary cash flow diversions away from subordinate note distributions as a result of breaches in interest diversion and/or over-collateralisation ratios within a number of CLOs to which the Company has exposure (through BGCF). GSO has already taken numerous steps to seek to mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on the performance of its portfolios and will continue to monitor the rapidly evolving economic environment to identify risks and opportunities. Despite the near-term economic disruption and resulting dislocation in the global credit markets, GSO believes that these events create good investment opportunities and provide further prospects for BGLF to enhance shareholder value.

Decent monthly performance announced today. Am I the only one in this? Seems a good time to add with the Euro being so weak recently.
