Here is our 2019 list of funds with estimated distributions in excess of 20% of NAV. Roughly 25% of the firms in my database have released their distribution estimates, so this list has a long way to go.
It’s important to note that funds on this list are not necessarily poor quality, but these funds are worth a second look if you hold them in taxable accounts. Think twice before purchasing these in a taxable account before their distribution dates.
