What is the expected yield on the ETF?
Though not a current holding, I would consider Aberdeen Asia-Pacific Income Fund (FAX) as a
steady yield play. I closed my FAX position towards the end of last year when the share price
approached $8. The fund pays a monthly dividend and last year traded in a fairly narrow
window. I had nice FAX gains to lock in, so I took the gains. I might have approached the
situation differently if it were an income situation. FAX yields about 5.5% currently.
