Main Street Capital Corp is an investment firm engaged in providing customized debt and equity financing to lower middle-market companies and debt capital to middle-market companies. 

The investment portfolio of the company is typically made to support management buyouts, recapitalizations, growth financings, refinancings, and acquisitions of companies that operate in diverse industry sectors. 

The group invests in secured debt investments, equity investments, warrants, and other securities of the lower middle market and middle-market companies based in the US. Business is functioned through the U.S region and it derives the majority of the income from fees, commissions, and interest.

Three key data points gauge dividend equities or funds like Main Street Capital Corp:

(1) Price

(2) Dividends

(3) Returns

Those three basic keys best tell whether a company has made, is making, and will make money. 

MAIN Price

Main Street's price per share closed at $42.40 yesterday. One year ago its price was $24.03. Thus, the price per share has grown over 76% as it recovered from last year's COVID market slump. 

Should Main Street Capital Corp stock trade in the range of $24.00 to $48.00 this year, its recent $42.40 price might rise by $2.40 to reach $44.80 by May 4, 2022. My estimate is $4.07 higher than the median of three estimates from analysts tracking MAIN (as the three show a negative gain).

MAIN Dividends

Main's most recent monthly dividend of $0.205 is payable May 14th and equates to $2.48 annually yielding 5.80% at yesterday's $42.40 closing price. MAIN has paid annually increasing quarterly dividends for 10 years.
