EVV trades at an approx. 10% discount to NAV; NCV trades at about 5% premiuim to NAV. That's another issue for which I can't seem to get a straight answer. The standard response is "supply and demand" in the market. However, the supply is set, as both funds are closed end. If it's all "demand," is the market telling me that NCV is in greater demand than EVV? If so, why? I'm back at the beginning of trying to understand what's going on.
