Fund with 10% yield is as good as gold

On top of that payout, my price target for GGN could deliver 18% gains in shares.

Despite what the bears say, gold remains very pricey -- and will stay there for a while. The yellow stuff continues to trade at more than $1,100 an ounce even as the U.S. dollar rises and holds back commodity prices.


If you’re looking to play gold, I have a doozy of a mutual fund for you: The Gabelli Global Gold, Natural Resources & Income Trust (GGN).  This non-diversified, closed-end management fund invests in the equity securities of companies principally engaged in the gold and natural resources industries.


For starters, this fund yields a mammoth dividend of 10%! And as you’ll see in my technical analysis, shares of GGN themselves have a lot of upside potential as gold stays in high demand. Just check out this chart: showing the technical indicators:

 

GGN recently held on its support line and 200-day moving average, executing two of our internal Collins-Bollinger Reversal (CBR) buy signals, and broke through its 50-day moving average.


The short-term target is $19, but longer term it could run to the mid $20s. That’s a nice 18% gain above the price of GGN shares as of this writing!


If you’re looking to play gold, the Gabelli Global Gold, Natural Resources & Income Trust is a no-brainer.
