Symbol HTF. Horizon Technology Finance Corp. 7.37% Senior Notes issued in $25 denominations maturing March 2019.
Horizon Senior Notes just went ex-dividend and we are interested in buying the Senior Notes that are traded on the stock exchange. HTF is NOT a stock but instead a note that is traded on the NY Stock Exchange. The current yield is over 7%. Scroll down to see a description of the Company.
HTF closed at $25.39 on Wednesday and we would try to buy close to this price. Do NOT overpay.

From edwardklein.com on Bill: (Look for Ed Kleins new book Guilty as Sin in August, about…guess who)
“I feel like the dog chasing the car that doesn’t really want to catch it,” he says. “I don’t need the scrutiny of being in the White House. I love my life the way it is. I don’t want reporters up my nose all the time. I couldn’t be chasing skirts in the White House. They can’t impeach me again, but it would be very bad for Hillary. Believe me, if Hillary wins, I’m going to stay as far away from the White House as possible.”
As a reminder we suggest positions for semi-retired and retired folks looking for income. Right now we are in super-conservative mode. We would much rather conserve the money and NOT take risk in stocks….which we feel are vulnerable right now to a decline: we could be wrong but we really don’t care.
