    Why buy ETY? In fact swap!

    Geez, ETY practically at a premium AGAIN and won't go ex-div for another 3 MONTHS! Really not prudent to buy ETY as ANYTHING can happen before August.

    You can buy ETW, ETV, EOI or EOS...all go ex-div in June (EOI & EOS are monthly pay with MUCH better NAV performance anyway) and all are at 3%-5% discounts!!

    • You can also buy JSN or JLA at 6% and 7% discounts, and they will go ex-div even earlier in June. Use the same covered-call strategy as ETY, EXG, ETW, ETV, EOI & EOS, yet with even BETTER NAV performance, only down 2.21% and 2.06% vs. ETY which is down 8.61% YTD (includes dividends)!! I mean, its not even close.
