Why do you say they pay the same dividend? The January press release lists MAV as .08 and MHI as .07. Is there another press release that's not on Pioneer's website?
MAV's NAV is lower than MHI and they now pay the same dividend and MAV is more leveraged. Doesn't make much sense until MAV comes down in price to compensate for risk.
Until the bottom falls out of this pig like it did a few months ago, then the bank will be looking a whole lot better. (Bag holder since the mid $14's).
Sentiment: Strong Sell
You really need to do a google or yahoo search for "Penny Stock 101 org' and signup for their 100% complimentary email newsletter. They consistently bring me winning trade ideas. Just 8 ½ weeks into the 'Fall 2015' season and they've put out a combined total of +1,843% in profit. I am very impressed! Try it out for yourself now
Bought some more of this. Morningstar rates this Four Star. Yields 7.75% tax free. Has over 150 holdings. As long as Pioneer ok, MAV looks strong. Maybe has to pay out the 8 cents per month for a year to get back credibility. Comment please.
Fred...any hope they will ever raise the dividend again? see more reductions?
Before I bought, I looked at Mav dividend history and it showed past reductions followed by increases during past 10 years. Thx.
Arbata ( pronounced with a Roolllling R ) Arrrrrbata !
you are correct.
the top CA munis are pcq, pck and nzh.
the top national munis are pml, pmx and ktf or nev.
though i like nzf and nvg.
top taxable CEFs are pdi, dmo and then maybe pko and pcn.
if you like preferreds, then ffc and dfp and pfd
We shall see. I still think it's the BEST market traded municipal divi payer out there and that should account for a premium.
Seriously? Look at the history. I wouldn't be surprised to see this trade in the 13s. This was not panic selling, it was simply a fund adjusting to the reality of the new yield. With the significant premium that this fund carried, it deserved that type of sell off. This fund usually trades around a 7% yield. Would not be surprised to see it back there again, particularly since interest rates are expected to increase later this year. Wait until the distribution is paid and those shareholders that don't realize there was a divy cut yet start to digest the news...
I won't be surprised to see this back over $15 within a couple of months. Panic sellers caused a great opportunity to buy MAV here. Smart $$$ buying the panic. MAV will continue to give great monthly income over the long term.
Well, When Pioneer cut the div on PHT it came as a bit of a shock as PHT never had a div cut that I know of so I looked at other Pioneer CEF's and found that they cut the div on all of them except MAV.
I couldn't see how they could cut the div across the board without cutting MAV as well, it just didn't make sense. I've been looking to take a position in MAV for a while but resisted. I got in at 13.80 after the cut.

Which website is that Mike? I use cef-connect, but their info is usually outdated, and seems to come from the same source as morningstar.
I wrote a long reply on how to check (what website to go to ) on if a CEF is overearning its monthly distribution, or not ....and i see it was Removed/Deleted.
Are these really not Free Discussion message Boards ?
Are there people that don't like that i'm explaining on how to educate yourself on these CEFs ?
Are they preferring that we stay ignorant of this information ?
