multiplied by four (to annualize such coupon), divided by the closing
Current Indicative Value of the ETN on its current Coupon Valuation Date
rounded to two decimal places for ease of analysis. The Current Yield is
not indicative of future coupon payments, if any, on the ETN. You are
not guaranteed any coupon or distribution amount under the ETN.
*** “Current Yield (annualized)” equals the current Coupon Amount and
the two immediately preceding Coupon Amounts, multiplied by four (to
annualize such coupons), divided by the closing Current Indicative Value
of the ETN on its current Coupon Valuation Date rounded to two decimal
places for ease of analysis. The Current Yield is not indicative of
future coupon payments, if any, on the ETN. You are not guaranteed any
coupon or distribution amount under the ETN.
Note: DVYL, SDYL, MORL, DVHL, CEFL, LMLP, HDLV, SMHD, LRET, and MRRL pay
a variable monthly coupon linked to 2 times the cash distributions, if
any, on the respective underlying index constituents, less withholding
taxes, if any. Variations in the amount of monthly distributions will
lead to large variations in the Current Yield as calculated above. As
such, the Current Yield for each is not indicative of future coupon
payments, if any, on these ETNs.
