Re: CEF Holdings October 2019

 

I have been selling.   Only large position in CEFs that I intend to hold  is PCI.   In the next day or two the following smaller holdings will be going ex-div and I will sell them all: NCV, DSL, RIV, ZTR, BGR -- which will leave me only with PCI, PKO and PHK.

Am very worried about market.

Re: CEF Holdings October 2019

I remember in the old forum that this monthly post was up and running right on the 1st of the month, and had 20+ entries on who was holding what. Glad this is here. 

I've added some small holdings in preferred, oil/gas and a fund of funds just to see what it does. And gives me some diversification away from the usual suspects of PIMCO and the UTF/UTG pairing. 

CEF help me SWAN (sleep well at night) away the volatility that has been hitting the market for the past few months. I might just dump the oil, (MIE) and put those funds into the fund of funds (FOF) since that has some oil/gas exposure.
