diversified, closed-end management investment comp
AOD just announced the same regular monthly distribution for the Fund for the months of April, May and June 2011 as in the past three months: $0.055 per share. The price per share is trading at a 6.37% discount to NAV. Since December 2010, my share price has increased 7% which is especially nice when you add to that the monthly dividend $0.055 per share. If the share price continues to increase to point where it is at a premium to NAV, I will switch back to the ADVDX fund.
unfortunately the only options are outperform or underperform; based on total return, i would have to say under; however, based on a dividend at a reasonable price, I'm not concerned if it beats the market or not. even when the market dips or div flucuates, AOD provides a nice income stream.
numbers of stocks declaring dividends and size of dividends increasing daily. Look at the protfolio it holds. Selling at a discount to its NAV.
Div. will out perform the market this year.
AOD tiene grandes posibilidades de crecimiento dado su conformación tan diversificada, en un mercado dónde quiere por todos los medios transformarse en alcista, sin tener noticias buenas. De aquí en más sólo se puede esperar crecimiento a corto y mediano plazo. Su rentabilidad decayó pero se ajustará al alza ni bien comiencen a aparecer cifras normales de crecimiento bajo pero crecimiento al fin. Dentro de sus integradas se encuentran poderosas empresas de India, Taiwan, MacDonals, etc, lo que hace de este ETF un buen piso de inversión para tener en cualquier cartera.
Currently trades a slight premium to book (but well within its historic range) and maintains excellent yield. Dividend cut was a good thing. Will re-recommend if they cut it some more (after the fall, of course).
Value Alert! Alpine's Dynamic Total Dividend Fund is an Exchange Traded Fund (ETF) that merits your immediate attention. Because of some fleeting bad press from a Wells Notice, a short seller who thinks ETF prices should not fluctuate (hello?) and a temporary dividend reduction due mostly to the recent devaluation of the Euro which compressed the value of the underlying stocks AOD holds to collect the dividends, you can now buy this high yielding ETF at bargain basement prices.<br /><br />First of all, the management of Alpine's Closed End Fund AOD had already let us know 32 days in advance there would be a significant dividend cut which always means a 50% drop in yield. At today's price $4.89, the yield is 13.70%. Every rational investor knows if you invest in the stock market Stocks and ETF values will fluctuate, there is no genuine cause for alarm here that I can find. I have been researching and investing in Stocks since 1989. Dear Investors the sky is not falling, despite what Chicken Little squawked (Mr. Short Seller with a typewriter).<br /><br />AOD proved itself over the years by bouncing back from a huge market and price downturns including the recent financial crisis where the market and AOD bottomed in March of 2009. AOD's manager invests in European stocks because that is where the highest yielding dividend stocks are located. Directly from Alpine's Management via their full disclosure webinar for their investors they had not invested in British Petroleum (BP) which was crushed by the market due to the oil spill nightmare in the Gulf of Mexico.<br /><br />The bottom line is all is well, the bad news has passed. The massive volume spike this week indicates capitulation and a true bottom, so this official buy recommendation is only after the first day of price rebound from the bottom ($5.16 is a 2 year low, but I cannot guarantee it bottomed yet only that it will). Here is rational (Disclosure I do not own this ETF) summary on the buy rating:<br /><br /> <br /><br />AOD has a strong and steady record of consistent monthly payouts of 12 cents per share from January 2007 to June 2010 + bonus payouts! The bad news is now officially history, refocus and look forward to a 5 ½ cent payout every month.<br /><br /><br />The current yield of close to 13.7% is in itself a strong catalyst that will attract new buyers. In addition, the smart money crowd of value investors, high yield investors and mutual fund managers will soon pounce like hungry tigers to support this ETF because of the outstanding value created by panicked investors. Now you can look forward to capital appreciation too.<br /><br /> <br /><br />AOD's management uses an accelerated dividend strategy to earn 6 dividend payouts per year rather than the usual four. It is actively managed intelligently, for example investors had more than 30 days notice of this recent dividend reduction a first for AOD.<br /><br /> <br /><br />The management also is looks forward and strategically plans by buying companies that will soon be increasing their stock dividend before they announce. This is widely known catalyst proven to attract new investors, which in turn causes price appreciation.<br /><br /> <br /><br />High yielding dividend stocks provide an extra margin of safety in down markets, the dividend will just keep attracting buyers and simple the fact that more holders are income investors that hold and reinvest their dividends. <br /><br /> <br /><br />Instant diversification is a good thing. The recent quarterly report from Alpine's Closed End Funds shows that this fund is a basket of many well known and high quality companies. Of course, they pay dividends! One look and you will see for yourself (always do your own due diligence). This is a must see for all, especially for skeptics. How can a hundred high quality stocks all go to zero?<br /><br /> <br /><br />Attention retirees and income investors: AOD provides a monthly dividend payout. $100,000 invested will yield $12,790 every year. Better if you reinvest the dividends too. Compared to a five year CD at 3% which would yield about $3250 per year. From 2000 to 2009 S&P 500 has returned (-1.19) in comparison. The rate of inflation is alarmingly high even though the government statistics are manipulated as evidenced by silver and gold's ten year chart. <br /><br /> <br /><br />Focus on the one & two year Japanese Candle Stick Chart (widely known as the most revealing of all charts by Wall Street insiders, line charts are nearly useless in comparison) notice the strong bounce backs from the lows. The temporary panic is now history buy after the day of upward price movement (safe is good). From each bounce back investors gained over 100% from purchases made at lows, plus the dividend appreciation.<br /><br />Folks this is the best entry point in 2010 you are likely to see. Dividend cash paid monthly, low risk and a healthy capital gain will be yours.<br /><br />
Not sure about this, but I like the dividends.
i have no idea, high dividend yield though
Dividend play. I own shares of AOD in personal portfolio.
steady monthly dividend
PAYS OUT TOO MUCH
With a divy like that, who really is concerned about the share price. Buy it, drip it and keep your eyes out for divy cuts.
AOD is just one of the gems for high divy payout.. Have had this stock since March and I like the communication with front office. Although not much data is available on the company via the web, the people who answer the phone are quite helpful.My buildup of AOD will continue with careful analysis. This newbie since 2007 has not reached it's peak and should produce a reliable income throughout March 2010.Seems the stock gets cheaper around the divy ex date than builds from that point. These drops make for perfect purchase opportunities. I'm very bullish on this stock. Of course this is just my opinion.KriscoKid395
