  • The fund's portfolio consists primarily of common equity and has a reasonable level of leverage.
  • The fund's distribution yield is comparable to the Alerian MLP Index and appears to be sustainable.
  • The fund is currently trading at a very attractive valuation.

The news just came out this evening that this and a few other First Trust energy CEF's are going to merge and then change into an ETF. Does anyone have any initial thoughts on this?

Yeah, FIF probably shouldn't be included in the merger because it's a bit different than the other three energy CEFs (FPL, FEN, FEI). FIF tends to be more utility-heavily.

This is a good way for First Trust to get rid of the perpetual discount of its funds though. It could unlock some value for investors to have these things trading as an ETF instead of as different CEFs.
Any explanation for the big spike up this week? FIF was up over 10% on Tuesday.
