Neither will cut their dividend. Cohen and Steers just raised the dividend on 3 funds(dvm, rtu and utf) and AOD has indicated the dividend is in the bag for this year. The question is which will do better going forward. RNP is a leveraged fund in a rising rate environment. AOD is not leveraged. Also The DVM fund at C&S is not leveraged and holds large cap reits and utilities and is selling for a 10% discount. I have recently purchased DVM and INB and plan to purchase more at these levels. Already own AOD and AWP. I think a leveraged preferred fund may come under pressure next year if short term rates rise. Good luck.
