Portfolio holdings and weightings are historical and are presented here for informational purposes only. They are subject to change at any time.


The difference between total assets and net assets, if any, is due primarily to the Fund's use of borrowings and other liabilities; net assets do not include borrowings. The Fund may employ leverage in the form of loans, preferred stock, reverse repurchase agreements and/or other instruments. When the Fund engages in transactions that have a leveraging effect on the Fund's portfolio, the value of the Fund will be more volatile and all other risks will tend to be compounded.


Percentages are based on total assets.


On January 22, 2013 EMO announced it increased the distribution to be paid on February 22, 2013 to $0.3400 per share up from $0.3350 the prior quarter.
