    • losbronces: Look @ a 20 yr chart. You'll see that its still well below 2007 & 2008 highs. So never recovered fully from crash. Maybe not what you're

    • losbronces: looking for. Last 2 years traded between 10.32 & 13.47 (just reading from chart).

    • Grand Nagus Kelly: really like $CIK. 8% dividend paid monthly. Don't own any now though. Both Credit Suisse funds.

    • C D: yeah the chart does not look too go - will look at CIK! thanks for the tip!

    • Grand Nagus Kelly: Good investing and let me know if you buy.

    • Ocean Man: I've been buying some $HYLS and $MEN. Similar monthly yields, room to bounce up.

    • Grand Nagus Kelly: My advice is listen to OM before listening to me and most others around here. Surprised you'd have an interest in these things OM.

    • Ocean Man: I only trade with a portion of my account. I mostly collect dividends. $MEN has pulled back 25% due to the Detroit scare on muni's, but MEN

    • Ocean Man: has zero Detroit exposure. It pays a 7% tax-free yield, paid monthly, and could recover some of that drop. $HYLS is long junk bonds and

    • Ocean Man: short Treasuries to protect against interest rate fluctuations. It has a 6.2% yield, paid monthly, and is about 12% off its highs.

    • Ocean Man: I prefer to park my dry powder in funds like these rather than just sitting in cash earning nothing.

    • Grand Nagus Kelly: Liked $MEN better myself. Hoarding cash now. Got a few near my buy price.
      8/30/13
    • C D: I have been watching $MEN - wondered why there was a 25% pull back- Good to know
      8/30/13
    • C D: I own many shares of $FNMIX - : Keeps dropping. All this talk about emerging markets not sure if I should stay in or sell-
      8/30/13
    • C D: Still like the monthly div it gives- 6.5 cents a share.
      8/30/13
    • C D: Also waiting for $SDRL to have a pull back so I can load up on some more shares! Great Q2 report and a sweet div increase!
      8/30/13
    • Grand Nagus Kelly: $SDRL gets so close to my price of $36 then jumps. It's like a hot woman I can never have.
      8/30/13
    • C D: $SDRL -LOl !Yea ,this one is hard to catch. Don't see it going lower then $40 on a pull back-
      8/30/13
    • Grand Nagus Kelly: Oh well. Right now I like $RIG better anyway. Loads of cash and 4.5% dividend that is easily sustainable.
