Do you still have an awesome yield of nearly 20%. Over the past year this fund has dropped in value in excess of 70%. I personally think that Morgan Keegan sucks as bond managers of a bond fund and were like most of the other big firms that dealt in mortgage backed bonds-they didn't have a clue of the dangers in these mortgage backed bonds. They were far too busy charging big fees to investors to worry about the crap they were selling.
RSF selling at less then $5.00 a share is a outright , outstanding Bargin. Wit over $300 Million in assets, and only 27 Million shares outstanding, plus paying out a great Dividend of 24% at .10 cents a share till march of 2008, you can't beat this Fund. IMO do your own DD and see for yourself.

I agree; however, if the principal drops faster than the dividend, the investment could vanish. With this monthly payer, I have my dividends reinvesting to lower my cost basis in hopes of the value increasing.
