    • If the stock doubles it is part of returning 30%. I am saying Alpine can not earn 30% cocsistently from this price level. If you think they can keep paying the dividend without reducing the NAV then thay have to make 30%. It doesn't matter when it goes up or how much it goes up. To pay out 2.16 on a 6.87 NAV they have to earn in excess of 30% going forward and no I don't think they can do it. No one can. The dividend is not sustainable at these levels without hurting the NAV. I wish they were because I have a lot of AOD:

      • Dear MYSONCHINO, I agree to disagree with you. With the price of the market the NAV does not matter as I stated earlier. The xxxx number of shares you could buy at 20 you can now buy at 7. NO CHANGE. Weather these stocks keep holding the dividend the same is the only question. But the market is ripe to make short term gains besides dividend capture. If you bought at 6 and they cut the dividend, who cares the return would still be great. Buy more shares and stop the bull about 30%. Be happy and laugh all the way to the BANK (if you can trust the bank will still be there) Pilot

      • It is unlikely BUT if they're holdings have fallin(in value) but have not cut dividend of course its possible. Only the nav(price) on the stocks and the fund have fallen.If the stocks DIV's are safe then AOD's div is safe.My opinion is that if they have rotated into more stable stocks for safety of DIV and rotate in and out of less stable DIV payers then it could be acomplished.That being said the rotation part of the DIV has to be maybe $1.20-1.50 of the $2.16.I really think its the rotation part if it fails the reduction in Div will come.
