both an increase in the dividend and a recovery of commercial real estate will help this stock, but presently the net asset value is over $17 per share so that should also help it.
What happened a few years ago was this fund was also a victim of the credit squeeze. It had preferreds out and when the value of its investments dropped, due to convenant requirements, they had to be redeemed. No financing was available so assets had to be sold at low prices to redeem those shares. I believe that issue has been removed. But you need to do your own due diligence.
