  • The Millionaires' REITs That Pay Monthly Portfolio [View article]
    As always, a most thoughtful and interesting analysis of REITS. My questions concerns MORL, which invests in most of the REITS you mention, yet provides a 2x leverage dividend. Wouldn't that meet your monthly goals?

  • 50/50 Portfolio (BDCs And mREITs) High Yield 10%, H1 2015 Update [View article]
    Hi: That was a highly cogent analysis of the aims and methods of income investing. My question is why wouldn't you emphasize MORL and BDCL, since they contain most of the other Reits and BDCs? And perhaps add CEFL and SMHD, and perhaps CLM (Cornerstone), to add to both diversification and income?

    How about BDCL? Wouldn't that be the best of all possible worlds?

  • Cornerstone Total Return: Yield Illusion Creates Substantial Downside [View article]
    That is the key issue for any company that pays out more in dividends than they earn. At some point, the assets must disappear, although their holdings are quite impressive.

  • Cornerstone Total Return: Yield Illusion Creates Substantial Downside [View article]
    The month after they have "returned all my capital," don't I still get a dividend check? Whose money are the paying me with?

  • Tax-Deferred, 12.8% Distribution: Columbia Seligman Premium Tech Fund [View article]
    Being retired, I like high dividends, especially those with ROC. So I thoroughly enjoy articles that go for high dividend, although there are too many that do. They try to fake you out with high yield.

    Speaking of ROC, how about GABUX? It pays 15%, all ROC, and monthly dividends as well. A nice addition to STK.

  • ARMOUR Residential REIT, Inc. Announces Public Offering of 40,000,000 Shares of Common Stock [View article]
    Hi. I'm just a retiree seeking dividend income. ARR, at 17%, is and sounds fantastic, as long as the FED keeps interest rates low. Of course the dividend is taxed as ordinary income, but you're still ahead after paying the taxes than if you brought a tax-free bond. BUT, how about GABUX. It pays a high dividend, taxed at only 15% (so far), and some of the dividend is classified as return of capital...no tax at all?
    Isn't that everybody's dream investment??
