Look for closed-end funds that are trading at a discount to their net asset value (NAV). But discounts may occur when funds are on the price downside. Funds trading at large premiums have the potential to lose significant value when stock prices move to the downside.

Closed-end funds tend to have higher annual expense ratios than exchange-traded funds so check a fund's fee schedule before you buy it.
