PTY: Weathering The Storm With A Durable, Double-Digit Dividend Yield

PTY is a flagship closed-end fund managed by PIMCO that has performed well since inception in 2002. The fund is plunging deeper and deeper into the red as risks remain at the forefront of the conversation. The fund has reached an unusual double-digit dividend yield which remains well covered.

PTY: I Like The High Yield Exposure, But The Premium Remains A Real Concern

PTY has continued to struggle since my last review, although its very short-term price momentum has been positive. I like high yield credit in general, for one that wants fixed-income exposure. Interest rate risk remains the main threat to credit and bonds, and high yield has less relative exposure. Credit spreads suggest there is some value here, within the U.S. and emerging markets. This could help generate interest in funds like PTY. Despite these positives, the premium price remains a sore point. It is difficult to find merit to buying a CEF at a 14% + premium, and that is the case as of now.

PTY: A New Day For A Battered Closed End Fund

PTY is a flagship PIMCO closed end fund having performed well since inception in 2002. The fund is trading with an unusual negative TTM return as shareholders continue to flee the fund since a distribution cut in September. The recent performance has changed the fund’s opportunity set, leading us to reassess. Today, the valuation and yield are better than before the cut.

PTY: A Victim Of Its Own Past Success

PTY has seen a double-digit drop over the past three months. The decline was predictable, but the speed at which it occurred has taken some by surprise. With this drop, PTY is now trading at a much more reasonable valuation, limiting the downside risk going forward. However, it is still above my premium to NAV threshold. High yield credit has performed well in 2021, and there are signs that could continue in 2022 as the economic recovery continues. This bodes well for PTY's underlying holdings. With a recent income cut, the fund is now covering its distribution, which is a positive sign.

PTY: 30% NAV Premium And Rising Corporate Yields Create Significant Downside Risk

Record low-interest rates are pushing many investors into riskier leveraged high-yield credit funds like PTY. PIMCO's PTY has become riskier over the past two years, with a higher beta and volatility than most equity funds. PTY's net asset value declined recently as junk bond yields switched toward a rising trend. The end to monetary stimulus, falling consumer confidence, and rising inflation will likely push junk bond yields materially higher. At a massive 30% NAV premium, combined with other negative factors, PTY is at high immediate risk of a significant decline in value.

Oct 19

PTY: A Best-In-Class CEF With A Luxury Valuation

PTY is a closed end fund managed by PIMCO that utilizes a diversified portfolio to drive current income and total return. The fund is one of PIMCO’s flagship CEFs, outperforming its peers and even the S&P 500. A recent distribution cut combined with an extreme premium to NAV creates an interesting outlook for the fund.
