Again, my apologies, for giving the wrong symbol. The AGIC fund's symbol is NCV and is NOT a muni fund. I did verify that it owns no Muni's.

Both funds invest in about the %age of junk - about 25-30%. After that, their portfolios diverge; one to MBS's and the other to convertibles. They also hold smaller %ages of other fixed income instruments.

Basically, I'm trying to determine if NVC is the better hold based on their "other" holdings, i.e., that covertibles are better than MBS.

I appreciate everyone's input. Perhaps, I should get out of closed end funds. I actually started on the switch yesterday by selling about 35% of my EVV holdings and investing the proceeds into other high yield instruments - some pure junk ETF's, high dividend utilities, etc.

Thanks to all, Bill
