MIAMI, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 06/09/11 -- Boards of Directors of closed-end funds face an increasing number of industry-specific decisions. The Investor's Guide to Closed-End Funds monthly research report, published by Thomas J. Herzfeld Advisors, Inc., proudly announces a Special Boardroom Issue designed specifically with current boardroom topics in mind.
The issue looks at:
- the climate for initial public offerings and secondary market demand
- trends in declared shareholder stakes
- dissident activity
- shareholder proposals
- discount-narrowing techniques
- progress in addressing the auction rate preferred share liquidity crisis
- the changing role of settling firms which bought back auction rate preferred shares from many retail investors and are now the largest shareholders of closed-end fund-issued preferred shares
While The Investor's Guide to Closed-End Funds routinely provides detailed information and statistical studies to help boards assess a wide variety of industry topics, this is the first issue dedicated to the boardroom. Information about this and past issues is available at www.herzfeldresearch.com.
