Weekly Closed-End Fund Roundup: NBB Tender Offer, Liberty Funds Dividend Adjustment

Published Sun, 03 Feb 2019 23:47:00 -0500 on Seeking Alpha

This article was first released to subscribers 1 month ago.
The Weekly Closed-End Fund Roundup will be put out at the start of each week to summarize recent price movements in closed-end fund [CEF] sectors in the last week, as well as to highlight recently concluded or upcoming corporate actions on CEFs, such as tender offers. Most of the information has been sourced from CEFInsight or the Closed-End Fund Center. I will also link to some articles from Seeking Alpha that I have found for useful reading over the past week. The searchable tag for this feature is "cildoc". Data are taken from the close of Friday January 18, 2019.
