Hi all, I am looking to add another world CEF or two (in addition to EHI). I have read alot of discussion on this board about GIM , TEI, PCI, PDI and BWG. What do folks think of AWF? Any others that are recommended? Thanks in advance.
just cut its dividend from 3.5c to 2.5 c/share. the price reacted... didn't see it coming...still holding though. this pup was not in my portfolio for its yield, but rather for its fairly cheap and conservative EMB exposure.
Franklin Templeton ( GIM ) declares $0.025/share monthly dividend , 28.6% decrease from prior dividend of $0.035. Forward yield 3.73% Payable April 30; for shareholders of record April 15; ex-div April 10. Post your comment!
employing historically no / low (<10%) leverage are favorites (or on the short list) of forum members. I only know of one: GIM . Any other ones you guys can add would be appreciated. ACG would not qualify for this list because it has started to add leverage
returns. Ticker % EM NAV rt 1/23 DSL 45 +18 bps BWG 50-70? - 85 bps GIM 60? - 95 bps I'm guesstimating what I think the EM percentage is for bellwether widgets like GIM and BWG, since they don't explicitly carve up their book into nice labels
I am looking for a core holding in Global Bonds, and GIM seems to have 1) no leverage, 2) discount to NAV, 3) positive UNII ..... buy-n-hold CEF for Global Bonds? Any specific risks I should be aware of with GIM ? Your thoughts are appreciated.

attractive right now? Lee: Another one is Templeton Global Income , ticker [TICKER: GIM ] GIM , and this one is the closed-end fund version ..... points, whereas the closed-end fund, ticker GIM , has an expense ratio of only 73 basis points
