    • yes it is good remember last year how awful the uncertainty was?

      Sentiment: Buy

    • Great!! IF it were only that simple -- let's hope that THIS year the whole distribution is ALL "dividend" , unlike the 31.5% of 2012 distribution which was Return OF Capital (ROC), which is a return or our own money, and on which w get to pay cap gain tax later, while the published "yield" of 11% is really more like 7.5%(although no one ever tells us that, OR that the 31.5% looks like it's tax-free but it's really taxed later.....)
      PLUS, there's no way to even know if ROC is happening until we get our "amended"(probably) 1099 next February.....
      Fortunately (or unfortunately), as Wikipedia says:
      "The retail investors these funds are sold to rarely have the technical knowledge to distinguish income from ROC."
      Disclaimer: no expert here - it just seems ot me that WE (investors) should know what we're "investing" in.....
