    This investment is misleading

    Page 20 of the annual report shows that 80.84% of distributions to common is return of capital meaning yield is closer to 3.2% instead of 15%. Downright insulting IMO.

    • Actually, as long as the price per share remains about the same, that's an advantage. The portion of the divy that's ROC is free of tax.
      When you sell, you have to recaprure it as ordinary income, but special treatment of cap gains is about to be much less of an advantage when the Bush tax cuts expire at the end of the year.
      I see it as kinda like being able to keep your money ( so long as the price remains constant) and spend it too.
