San Antonio, TX, Oct. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- U.S. Global Investors announces the monthly cash dividend payment to investors in its Near-Term Tax Free Fund (NEARX). The distribution, which fell on September 30, 2019, was $0.002125 per share.
All income distributed by NEARX is tax-free at the federal and often state and local levels. That’s because the fund invests in municipal bonds, which are tax exempt. Specifically, NEARX invests in short-term, investment-grade bonds, which have been historically less volatile than longer-term instruments.
NEARX seeks preservation of capital and has maintained a net asset value (NAV) that’s floated in the $2 range. It’s demonstrated minimal fluctuation in its share price, even in times of economic crisis. In the past 12 months through September 30, the fund’s NAV price volatility was less than 1.5 percent.

Bond funds are subject to interest-rate risk; their value declines as interest rates rise. Though the Near-Term Tax Free Fund seeks minimal fluctuations in share price, it is subject to the risk that the credit quality of a portfolio holding could decline, as well as risk related to changes in the economic conditions of a state, region or issuer. These risks could cause the fund’s share price to decline. Tax-exempt income is federal income tax free. A portion of this income may be subject to state and local taxes and at times the alternative minimum tax. The Near-Term Tax Free Fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in securities that pay taxable interest. Income or fund distributions attributable to capital gains are usually subject to both state and federal income taxes.
There is no guarantee that the issuers of any securities will declare dividends in the future or that, if declared, will remain at current levels or increase over time.
