  • JEPI has established a strong track record of paying monthly dividends and now has a forward yield of 9.33%.
  • When compared to the major indexes, JEPI has declined less on a YTD and 1-year metric, indicating that its income strategy doesn't take on an elevated level of risk.
  • If you're looking for an income-focused investment, it may be wise to sacrifice several percentage points of forward yield for the downside protection JEPI has displayed.
  • In this article, I compared JEPI to many of the popular income-focused ETFs that have become popular over the years.
  • I do much more than just articles at Barbell Capital: Members get access to model portfolios, regular updates, a chat room, and more. Learn More »
