In distribution phase. Interested in CEFs (esp buy-writes), MLPs (ouch) and Munis for their tax favored distributions in my taxable account. My belief in alternative investments (eg long-short) hasn't been rewarded by good returns, but I continue to explore alternatives (eg EFFE). I find the simple dynamic asset allocation strategies, eg TLT-SPY, quite compelling and may move in that direction. Have been working on backtesting software to explore various ideas.
