    Rights offering is going to eliminate the premium, at the very least, and likely be in discount territory. Be careful if you are going to buy into the offering, thinking it's a good thing paying only 95%, it will likely go below your price within a month or two of the offer settling.

    Bullish short term neutral at best long term. There are a lot of closed end funds that have appreciated poorly. In many cases not at all. You normally do not care as long as the stock price and NAV are relatively stable because the fat yields will give a nice return. But remember the yield for this fund is intended to be a little less than the USA fund because growth and capital appreciation are more the objective.

    That is not what has happened. You could have paid $9 a share 30 years ago. Now it is $5.24 and while it might be a little unfair now because of the Covid sell off this has been a very volatile stock. It was stable the first decade it was out but it has been a roller coaster the last 12-13 years.

    Either they need to keep the distribution consistent so the yield goes up when the stock sells off or they need to buy back some shares to keep the price stable. I cannot recommend this as a buy and hold core investment.

    This growth fund started in April 1986 at roughly 9.50 and has been as high as the low 14's. Has it always paid these extremely high dividends? If so this is a low volatility fund with high dividends. Seems like a relatively safe place to park some money? Someone smarter than me enlighten me please.

    You guys do realize that ASG went x/rights yesterday and they will increase the share count by 20%. The price will be 95% of the lower of market price or NAV. Now what will the shorts do, what will they do?
