Some information about my investing:* I have been investing my own money (and managing it myself) for over two decades now. I would never let anyone else manage my money and neither should you.* My portfolio is structured as a "High Yield Strategic Income" portfolio. The portfolio has evolved over the past 20 years. I invest now only in Closed End Funds. I am now at the point in my investing journey that I look for maximum income generation. All distributions are reinvested.* I make every attempt to tell my fellow investors what they "need" to hear, not what Wall Street and the main stream media think you "want" to hear.* "Past performance definitely does not guarantee future results". With that said it amazes me that for most investors of dividend stocks, the best they can do is invest in all the same exact S&P company stocks by largest market cap. * Educate yourself about what people really earn in this country:http://www.socialsecurity.gov/cgi-bin/netcomp.cgi?year=2014 Then ask yourself: "How is it possible most people the US can "appear" to be so wealthy?"It is a starting point to cut through the deception that is the main stream media and Wall Street salespeople.Also: Everyone no matter what age should watch "Money as Debt"Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jqvKjsIxT_8 A personal note:Our family are active charitable donors to * The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia* St. Jude's Children's Hospital * Ronald McDonald House* Woundedwarriorproject.org. These institutions provide valuable services to children and veterans in need. I know this from personal experience. If you are able, please donate a little something every month to each of these organizations. Thank you.
