57 Retired, no cell phone, a cheapo ACER laptop, no fax, no problem. Seek income investments with demonstrated performance. Currently seeking energy and commodities centric themes with yield. A trader of Closed End funds of the same description. Investing in same themes TSX traded in Canada to advantage perception of a virtual commodities basket currency eventually evolving. I believe the Canadian dollar is grossly undervalued. Investments in other surrogates of commodity centric economies as Rand, Real, and Aussie $ denominated ideas as well. I listen to Bloomberg Radio and pay little attention to CNBC cheerleaders. My best current idea is Great Lakes Hydro Income with a 6.8% distribution and a near term target of $18.50CD/became Brookfield Renewable (BRPFF) now @ $30. Best idea for 2013 buying ABCS below $18.65 for ~Anticipated 5.5% annual distributions and as a channel trade above $20.50. Coupled with an advance in the Loonie back to .83 in the next 6 months and .90 within a year I expect a gret payoff on it within 18 months. I am actually aware that the 2010 winter Olympic Games will be going off in less than one year in Vancouver/Whistler/Blackcomb. Look for other investment ideas that may be coupled to that event like BIRDF. That GLHIF which converted to a partnership in 2012 was up 1.7% on 7/13/12. My return on the cost basis is 49.7% then plus the several years of 6% yield dividend distributions. So BRXX may have some of the pop BIRDF got from the Olympics in Canada?
