Capital gains distribution

A payment to 

Investment company

 shareholders of profits realized on the sale of 

ITS

 securities. Equity funds usually pay out these amounts once a year, typically in December, while bond funds often include 

Capital

 gains in their monthly distributions. Many funds allow automatic 

Reinvestment

 of 

Capital

 gains, instead of distribution. In general, 

Capital

 gains distributions reduce the value of the fund. Also, these distributions are 

Taxable income

 for the recipient, so funds that allow 

Reinvestment

 instead of distribution are sometimes preferred by investors in 

High

 tax brackets.
