Tilson Dividend (TILDX)
As of March 22, 2010
This fund frequently uses covered calls to supplement its goal of providing investors with current income. A covered call works like this: The fund enters into a contract with a buyer in which the fund agrees to sell a security if that security reaches a certain price. In exchange for the right to purchase the security at an agreed-upon price, the buyer pays an upfront fee, and this provides investors with current income in much the same way that dividends do.
