I will update my CEF portfolio once every three or four months.

CEF Portfolio as of 2/14/14

The CEF portfolio is a portfolio within a portfolio. It is a balanced world portfolio that focuses on income generation with capital appreciation being a secondary objective. I have eliminated several buy-write stock funds due to underperformance. 

For some of these CEFs, I hold positions in two or even three accounts and will vary the reinvestment option by accounts. I have started to reinvest all dividends paid by bond CEFs, other than VGI, due to their abnormally large discounts by historical standards. Vanguard does not permit reinvestment of the VGI dividend.  

For DPG, I am reinvesting only the dividends for the 100 shares bought in the Roth IRA. 

I have reinvested all dividends paid by SWZ since I first purchased shares.   

I have taken several snapshots of purchases made with year end distributions:
