This is a great index fund for its dividend. Today the dividend Yield is 13.24%. And this fund pays out MONTHLY. I suggest you reinvest the dividends and buy more shares while the price is low. Once the total market and economy starts to improve, your total holdings will reflect what you have reinvested over and over again.

The dividend is fluctuating, and the stock has lost a lot of its value, but at current prices i'd say it's a good buy if you've some appetite for risk.

After holding this stock for just a year and reinvesting the dividends (which are distributed monthly!), combined with a slight drop in price, my holding has now increased by 13%. That's the thing with dividend stocks, a (hopefully temporary) reduction in price doesn't bother me as much, as you get extra leverage on your DRIP.

I have owned this fund from $18.78. This fund has dropped some 25% for the 6 or so weeks that I have owned it. As a reference other similar funds like DOP and BFD only lost 11.5% during the same time frame.

Also looking at the graphs other similar funds tend to rise and fall at somewhat the same percentage. I noticed with ADG that it will rally with the market but at declines it losses over twice as much. That is a sure race to zero. Something seems broken in this model. I have severe concern about the competency of those running this fund. I have tried to call and apparently they have so many calls a machine asked me to leave a message. I did but still did not get a return call.

As soon as the market rallies a I will sell even at a substantial loss and put the proceeds left in the other 2 funds where I may have a prayer in earning back some of my losses.

This closed-end fund invests in great long term trends: commodities, baby-boomer plays, and consumer staples. It uses the dividend capture method which makes this a wonderful retirement vehicle. My personal distributions amounted to 14.9% which for a retiree is very desireable.

The Alpine Global Dynamic Dividend Fund’s primary investment objective is seek high current dividend income, of which more than 50% qualifies for reduced Federal income tax rates. It seeks to achieve these goals by employing a research-driven approach to identifying companies globally with the potential for dividend increases and capital appreciation. Though the fund has about 22% of it’s holding in US countries it can invest up to 80% of its net assets in foreign companies. With about $125 million in net assets it has 65% and 10% of its fund in the European, Australia and New Zealand regions respectively. It offers a fair amount of diversification with the 113 companies and the top ten holding accounting for 20% of the total.

Its unique "dividend capture" strategy to optimize returns whereby it buys high-yield stocks with staggered quarterly payout dates is doing well with current market yield hovering around 8.3%. By doing so it captures six taxes advantaged quarterly payments over 12 months instead of just four. However its dividend capture strategies present it with inherent risks in the form of high turnover and brokerage fees that has made it trade at an premium of around 5% above its net asset value.

Industrial, financial and consumer non-cyclical account for the top three-sector allocation accounting for 30%, 20% and 16% respectively. Other bright areas are the energy sector that would benefit from the rising oil prices and the construction of new oilrigs. What attracts the fund most is its triple objective of seeking dividend income along with growth and value in the long term being a good pick for those with investors with low to medium risk appetite.

Basket of dividend stocks with a global bent; $1.80, 9% annual dividend (based on the $20 IPO price) payable monthly; proprietary computer program that enables fund to "rotate" stocks and get 6 annual dividend distributions instead of 4. Trading right now at a premium to NAV.
