I'd be interested in some opinions on that also. I think it's selling at a slight discount due to some dumping going on since the merger with BWE and BFD. BFD shareholders were used to a 20% yield and now they get less from BOE.
Blackrock is a strong campany with a good track record. BOE NAV is increasing with the current distribution rate of 12.78% per ETFConnect. Price is at a small discount. I think you would sleep well at night with this in your portfolio.
I think AOD would perform similar if they reduced their div distribution rate to a similar percentage.
I still have my doubts about the current market, so I'm looking to add on pullbacks as they occur. This could go on through 2010 before thinks get back to the "new normal".
