    What a slaughter

    Plug in RVT and compare the 6 month chart against the Dow, S&P and's underperformed by quite a large margin. Investors are losing confidence in the fund and to a degree Chuck Royce as it doesn't appear that he has material active involvement anymore.

    I've held this one since inception (over 20 years) and it's never been so out of favor....this is a liquidating fund and the heavy dividend that you're getting is a return of capital not return on capital.

    If you're looking for yield you're better off accepting less and investing in the preferred if preservation of capital is a goal.

    We may get a bounce but this one might not ever recover to the levels we saw last year.
