Alpine Total Dynamic Dividend F Message Board

  • pnfcharter pnfcharter Aug 15, 2010 6:49 AM Flag

    Crypto, another question please

    on cefconnect, it gives the category of Annual Expense Ratio. Are these expenses factored into the dividend or are they separate and withdrawn from your account? If so, at the same time dividend is given?

    Would really appreciate help

    • Expenses like management fees are taken out of incomes before dividends. There is no hidden surprise. Fee comparisons are valid for making an investment decision and you're right to be concerned. The higher the fees the less is available for investors.

      You can find the annual & semi-annual financial statements where expenses are detailed on the fund's web page. Follow the "Fund Sponsor Website" link on cefconnect.

      Taxes versus Dividend Yield: Not an issue in CEF's but if you are screening for high dividend yield and select foreign companies then you're most likely seeing an inflated divided yield. That is, several foreign countries have a direct tax on dividends and that is not reflected in "Div Yield".
