FDEU to Convert to an ETF Form | Closed-End Funds Message Board Posts

  • Please accept my sincerest apologies for failing to publicly acknowledge our fallen heroes this past Memorial Day. No excuse I could offer could justify the oversight. Along with you, I salute the many men and women who have proudly and selflessly served in our military to protect, defend and secure the freedoms and liberties we enjoy each and every day. Their bravery in making the ultimate sacrifice will forever be appreciated and they will always be remembered and celebrated and never taken for granted or forgotten.

FDEU to Convert to an ETF Form

George Spritzer scores with this action on one of his oddball cef write-ups. He is able to smoke out the quirky cefs that offer unusual potential. In general they don't react right away after hre IDs them over a period of time his analysis proves potent. This is another example of his work.


AFAIK this is the first cef to ETF transition that I've heard but I think Phil Goldstein thought it had occurred before. Of this one hasn't occurred either but management willing to come out with the statement moves it a long way towards getting it done. I think a conversion like this is far better for shareholders than the traditional liquidation of the vehicle or the occasional conversion to a mutual fund.

The market certainly liked the announcement as FDEU soared on a day when most everything else tanked. How it will actually happen remains to be seen since I think its going to be the first but if it's successful I would think others may follow the trail.

Here's the Spritzer S A piece.
