    What's not to like?

    I wanted to know how much IGD yields compared to SPY, taking cash dividends.

    If you are interested in another question, you can do your own DD.

    The bottom line is that ppl think they can receive 11% dividend and preserve initial capital. This is clearly not so.
    IGD is not better then a broad based index fund.

    As to your question about call options:

    Write a call option. Use part of the revenues to pay for distributions and management.
    Stockprice moves up sharply and the calls are excercised. In order to continue the game you have to buy the stock at this higher price. But now you have less money, and you have to buy at at higher price so you get less stocks, you get less dividends from it and you can write less options. Continue this process.
    My point is that if your timing is not right, the game will eventually have to stop.
