Interesting article in today's Phila. Inquirer Business Section on Eaton Vance National Municipals Funds. Manager Thomas Metzold says that the recent decline in the fund price was absolutely crazy. He reports that he wrote a check worth at least half a house recently to load up on shares. He recounts what has been well documented on this board that Hedge Fund forced selling drove this fund (and others) to irrationally low levels. Unfortunately it looks like the best of the bargain values did not last long, perhaps we will see a redux if further forced selling occurs again...
