On a percentage basis, the rise in the 10-year Treasury yield (to over 2.6% from 1.6% less than 2 months ago) is the worst since 1962, according to BTIG. "The Fed had no idea how leveraged or bubbled-up the world's positions were," says Andrew Brenner of National Alliance Securities. "Nothing is sacred today." Income funds: Alpine Total Dynamic (AOD -3.6%), Pimco High Income (PHK -1.6%), Eaton Vance Tax-Managed (EXG -3.6%). Equity REITs: Omega (OHI -2.3%), HCP Inc. (HCP -2.3%), Medical Properties (MPW -4.2%), Realty Income (O -0.4%). |Monday, Jun 2410:10 AM| 3 Comments

Wednesday, Nov 142012, 11:31 AMThey're getting there. Closed-end investment funds take it on the chin again, with the PIMCO High Income Fund (PHK -6.6%) leading. At $10.56, the fund no longer sports a ridiculous near-75% premium to NAV, but with NAV currently at $8.32, there remains a wide gulf. |Wednesday, Nov 142012, 11:31 AM| 10 Comments
