The SD trusts, SDT SDR and PER are all down about 2-3% today AFTER deduction of their latest distribution for today's ex-date. Dan Moore has authored articles on all of these trusts with more positive comments on PER and SDR than on SDT, so PER and SDR may get bounces when all is said and done. I sold my puts on PER and SDR with a nice gain. Many probably didn't catch his article on CHKR that was issued during the day when the stock was $13.50 and Yahoo has an annoying habit of junking up one's portfolio page with stupid motley fool and zacks articles. Moore's article on CHKR showed up under the summary CHKR page, but it is clearly having an effect which is always the risk with these trusts.
The ex date for CHKR is Friday and there appears to be support around $12.50 that is poised to give way when the distribution is deducted. $11.50 then comes into play.
It is very tempting to buy on the way down, however it is much like catching a falling knife and I have been burned in the past. If the number of unit holders decreases significantly, assuming the unit holders act as the divisor of the distributable profits, why wouldn't the dividend per unit holder increase?
