Recent News & Updates
PHK: Some Positive Attributes, If You Are Willing To Pay A Premium
PHK has been a relatively weak performer over the longer term, so readers were right to approach this fund cautiously. After a recent sell-off, there is certainly a buy case to be made, although I would reiterate this is not a CEF for the risk averse. Income metrics are not very strong, and a premium price is still present. Yet, the premium is lower than it has been in the past. Also, the duration is reasonable, driven by below investment grade holdings. With yields likely to go up in 2022, this managed duration approach is attractive.
PHK: A Solid Income Fund But Extremely Expensive
Investors have been struggling to generate income for a very long time due to the policies of the Federal Reserve. PHK is a promising income fund from a respected manager that boasts a diversified high-yield portfolio. The portfolio does not appear to be very risky despite it containing junk bonds. The 8.46% yield appears to be sustainable, although its long-term track record is a bit discouraging. The fund is trading at an extremely high premium to net asset value so there are other funds out there with better valuations.
PHK And RCS: What's The Latest On PIMCO Taxable CEFs?
(This report was issued to members of Yield Hunting on December 22nd. All data is from that date.) PIMCO released the latest monthly update UNII report. As I've noted many, many times, this report gets more attention than it's worth. In reality, NAV movements and valuations are better indications. On the report itself, I think the FY to date numbers are the most important followed by calculating the net investment income on a monthly basis.

Forecasted Diversified Financials industry annual growth in earnings
In this section we usually present revenue and earnings growth projections based on the consensus estimates of professional analysts to help investors understand the company’s ability to generate profit.
