    They announced earlier this month a monthly distribution of .0743 or 89 cents a year which gives investors the 10% yield they want or need in an investment like this. They should have no problem paying the $6.8M needed for that dividend.

    This is a solid fund. I would classify this fund as aggressive income. 2/3 equity income stocks including reits and utilities and 1/3 high yield bonds. The fund is fairly well diversified with some international stocks and bonds. Pretty good track record of performance comparable to the S&P 500 over the last 25 years.

    Worth consideration as a core holding.

    “Subject to the foregoing, the Fund estimates (as of the date hereof) that it has distributed more than its income and net realized capital gains for the fiscal year ending November 30, 2020; therefore, a portion of your distribution may be a return of capital. “

    It's being touted as 11.2% dividend. Given that the .1 monthly dividend has only been paid the past 3 months, i find it hard to believe they can continue it. The dividend is primarily based upon capital gains and requires that the market keeps going up.

    Just before 1:00PM there was a cross way out of the market. They are really playing games with this stock.

    I expect a drop after the special one-time dividend.

    Usually a better entry point than buying before the dividend.

    This is a fund I don't worry much about. This is never my worst performer.
    The monthly income is great for a retiree.

    The only problem I see is that it is thinly traded, so dribble in over time
    and if needed dribble out too.
