Dividend History (CEMDX)

  • ^ 12 Month Trailing Distributed Yield represents all distributions for over the past 12 months, divided by the net asset value as at Jun 30, 2021 plus any capital gains distributed over the past year. Capital gains are added back to estimate what the fund’s ending price would have been had those gains not been distributed. While the Fund endeavors to pay monthly distributions, dividends are not guaranteed and a company’s future ability to pay dividends may be limited and cease at any time.
  • ^^ Subsidized 30 Day SEC Yield is a compounded and annualized figure calculated according to a formula set by the SEC. The formula requires use of a specific methodology for calculating dividends and interest earned, and expenses accrued, during the period, and reflects the maximum offering price per fund share. The standardized computation is designed to facilitate yield comparisons among different funds.
  • ^^^ Unsubsidized 30 Day SEC Yield is the subsidized 30 Day SEC Yield in the absence of temporary expense waivers or reimbursements by the Adviser.
