    A couple of things.

    First of all this fund pays the lowest yield of the 4 Tekla funds. Around 6% vs around 8% for HQH, HQL and THW. Not sure why but that might make it less attractive to some.

    Remember also that THW and THQ pay distributions monthly while HQH and HQL pay quarterly. You do pay for that convenience the expenses are about double for THW and THQ. For example expenses for THW are 2.16% and just 1.10% for HQH.

    For those reasons I still value HQH and HQL a little more. They are in my top 7 CEFs. While I also think THW and THQ are worthy funds to own I like the two older funds a little bit more.

    THQ is a income fund to be held into infinity, for the monthly dividends. I will be adding when it goes down. It vacillates between two price points over the long-term. If it is at the high as it is right now then your dividend distributions come at a higher price and of course you get fewer shares. If the price is low then you get more shares. If you are at the accumulation stage and re-invest dividends then this is OK. When the time comes to take distributions to supplement social security then you will have higher monthly disbursements.

    Good discount, good distribution, new share buyback program,
    well experienced long term manager, most appropriate theme,
    not bad.

    Solid investment in the sector. A nice companion fund to HQH, HQL which are biotech heavy. This one has a very diverse healthcare portfolio much like BME. Solid reliable yield always around 8%.

    The 10% discount is the historical norm but still positive. Good proven management team and distributions are monthly though you are paying for that because expenses are double that of HQH and HQL.

    Investment style is more value oriented and about 15% of the portfolio is in bonds.

    Solid long term hold for anybody building a p[ortfolio of 10-15 CEFs.

    A great opportunity.

    Buying at a 9% + discount is a no brainer.....

    Have observed THQ for a couple of years and finally bought near the market lows at the end of March. I like the monthly dividend that will be re-invested for a few years.

    People, THQ is for the long term. Today is dividend day. When it goes down then it means that you get more shares at a discounted price. Isn't that what you want???

    While delivering 7.5% div (not all that bad) without variability, THQ is a great long term hold. I have had it now for excess of a year and it is a steady eddy. I have started a strategy of compounding the dividends and it appears to be working. Keep up the drip THQ!

    Somehow after 5 years of ownership I think it is time to take some THQ profits off the table. THQ has had, and has been an awesome run. Thank you management for being shareholder friendly. They never missed a dividend, and always managed to weather the financial storms. I just think the share price is going to take a hit soon and it is time to harvest some profit. I own this from the time it was in the $15.00/sh zone. Not going to be greedy...thank you for a job well done THQ.
