Western Asset High Income Fund II (HIX)

  • Tiki Bar Capital | Send Message 13 Aug

    Yield on $HIX is 12.88% at $6:95. Oil still crashing, so HIX likely to go lower. Waiting until oil well below $40/bbl to buy more.

        HIX: Smaller Distributions And History Suggest A Long Life Ahead $HIX

            Why the recent selloff in $HIX? Morningstar says 10.34% yield at $8.01. Seems like a bargain.

                Bought $BGH at the close today. I think $HIX, $GHY, $BWG, $EHI should do better now as tax related selling subsides. Yield is good on all.

                  : Have $GHY, went with $EDF. All look pretty good.

                    $HIX just cut div by 3% for Dec thru Feb - Still 9.6% yield at today's cost of 9.00

                        Since $HIX has roughly 86% of it's assets in bonds, is it not as risk from rising interest rates?

                          : it is basically a bond fund and i think the risk has been reflected in its price performance over the past 90 days - however,

                              : HIX is currently trading below it's NAV and has been around since 1998. I own $50K of it at a cost average of $9.49.

                              : What Joey says is true. Actually right now it is indeed below NAV with a -3.79% discount which is unusual. Could be a good value...

                                I favor dividend stocks like PSEC, AGD, ARR, IGD, HIX, and PHK. Divys help me live a comparable life style that I ejoyed when working.

                                    Another hi-income play: Hi-income fund HIX hitting new $10 high today. No surprise that it's juicy 10% dividend yield comes at higher-risk.
