Dividends4Life: Stocks With Monthly Dividends 2014: Main Street Capital Corporation

Dividend investors rely on the income that their stocks generate, either to provide ready cash for their living expenses or to free up funds for further investment. Yet one of the most annoying things about most dividend stocks is that they only make payouts four times a year, which doesn't fit well with the monthly expenses that most people have. A few select companies, though, make monthly dividend payments, and Main Street Capital (NYSE: MAIN) is one dividend payer that has been making payments month in and month out for more than six years.

Main Street Capital is a special type of entity called a business development company, which allows it to take advantage of some favorable tax provisions that give shareholders the benefit of receiving almost all of the income that the company generates in the form of dividends. In the process, Main Street offers access to privately held investments that aren't available to regular investors directly, and it seeks to earn the best returns while managing risk accordingly. Let's take a closer look at Main Street Capital and its monthly income.
