    • One issue was that the whole market, therefore the net asset value collapsed. Panic ensued, was great time to buy more.Another issue was the financing of the leverage. There was a failure in the ' auction rate prefered ' method of financing the leverage. All seems well now. I have owned the fund since its inception, and add to my holdings when the the time seems right. Check out the holdings, all great companies. The fund managers know more about managing leverage than I do. Good payout ( $.1025 per month ). If you have any confidence in the market at all this is a good a fund as there is. Kub

      Sentiment: Buy
