    if stock price doubles ?

    jet pilot,

    how do you feel about not knowing how much of the dividend income is special dividends ?

    i'd like to see mgmt do the div capture w/o using specials or at least tell us how much is coming from specials.

    • Jet pilot, my only point is that they can not make 30% on their money going forward. If they double their price it is all part of total return. I do not believe that ver the next 5 years they will return 30% in total return. Sure I could be wrong and hope I am but it is a very daunting task that few if any have ever done with a fund ( not an individual stock) have ever accomplished. No matter how the 30% is made it must be made to keep the dividend the same without reducing the NAV. Yes it could happen for a quarter and actually is this quarter but for 5 years? I don't think so. I am not saying this is not a good trading vehicle when it is at a discount. I also think it is a good investment as it is unleveraged and in income stocks. All I am saying is that it will not return 30% total return for the next 5 years and as such has to cut the dividend or the NAV has to decline. It's just math. There is no other alternative.
