Click on Quotes and Data at the top of your screen. Type EVJ in the little box on the left of the screen and click on go. A screen will appear that tells you the stock is Eaton Vance NJ Municipal Bond fund. There are a couple of news articles on it at the bottom of the screen.

Repeat the process for MUJ, also a NJ municiple bond fund. No new articles.

These may be listed at the back of the Mutual funds section of Barron's which your library maybe has that will tell you whether they are selling for a premium or a discount. An earlier reply that CEF sell at a discount is generally true, but not always. Some funds like Gabelli Equity Trust (GAB) are selling at a premium.

I agree with you about suspicion of brokers. They often are given quotas of things to sell. But your broker is teling these because they are probably double (or triple if you have a metropolitan tax) tax exempt. Don't know how big your holdings are and whether the tax advange would do you much good. My guess is that interest are no likely to go up much in the next year so you may be safe. Eaton Vance is a reputable company.
