If you look at the History of dividends for this MF, you will see that in all years other than 2011 there was a special dividend issued in early Dec. In 2010 they gave $.54 per share. I will take the $.26, which if reinvested, is a nice Christmas present.
.26 distribution. 11 cents long term gain, 15 cents short term gain. 12/12/12 - If you do the math it reflects the .26 distribution is offset by the price going down .28. It looks like a wash. Maybe this is a way to keep the price of the investment down.
