    It's only a guess. Investors should do their own research into these types of investments.

  • An Unbiased Look At Kraft's Q3 Earnings [View article]
    Bought back in the beginning of 2011 and some more along the way. I have about a 50% gain and will continue to hold this. Would like to see growth but I know the food business is fiercely competitive, I still have faith in management.

  • BlackRock's Move To Monthly Distributions Could Narrow Discounts In These Closed End Funds [View article]
    You did call it, good job. These funds are a lot more attractive now with a monthly distribution!

    It will still be the same amount though for the year. Take CII for example. $1.20 annual dividend, use to be paid out in .30 cents quarterly, now it will be paid out at .10 cents monthly still adding up to $1.20 annually. You will not lose out on the .30 cents because now the .10 cents will be paid out in Sept, Oct, and Nov (.10 * 3 = .30).

    As for July and August you already received your .30 cents it was just given to you in June. (Now next year it will be .10 for June, July, and August)

    Hopefully this clarifies things up. Would still be nice for a special dividend though! :)

    You did in fact misinterpret, it will be the same amount distributed for the year.

    "AT&T will only increase its divvy, not decrease it."

    I also hold T and would like to think it would never decrease either but anything can happen, don't be so bold.
