PIMCO’s HPK

By funu50401, January 28, 2013

If anyone knows, are this funds payouts ”qualified,” I.e., suject to the 15% dividend tax or are the payouts ordinary income. The ”hype” I’ve read on this says it can be DRIPed; if so, and if one DRIPed ones holdings, and the payouts continue at their present rate, this value of ones holdings in this fund would double in about 8 years.
Any one ”out there” know about thus PIMCO fund?
Thanks,
