John Cole Scott on The Street with Greg Greenberg Covering Some Attractive CEFs Based on Yield, Discounts and NAV Performance
Closed-end fund investors should consider buying the Blackrock MuniHoldings Quality Fund (MUE) because of its 6.6% dividend yield and double digit discount, says John Cole Scott, portfolio manager for Closed-End Fund Advisors. Scott is also bullish on the Cohen & Steers MLP Income and Energy Opportunity Fund (MIE) because of its high yield and overly wide discount, despite the fact that its only a year old.
