QYLD: The 15.70% Yield Is More Attractive In A High Yield Environment

Summary

  • As CDs and 1-year T-bills offer yields between 4% and 5%, high yielding ETFs such as QYLD are more attractive than looking for yield in equities yielding 2-3%.
  • QYLD has paid distributions for 106 consecutive months since its inception, as its buy-write covered call methodology isn't dependent on economic cycles.
  • QYLD sacrifices capital appreciation for immediate income and is an investment geared toward income investors.
  • 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 »

Build your portfolio utilizing growth, value, dividends and options

I am focused on growth and dividend income. My personal strategy revolves around setting myself up for an easy retirement by creating a portfolio which focuses on compounding dividend income and growth. Dividends are an intricate part of my strategy as I have structured my portfolio to have monthly dividend income which grows through dividend reinvestment and yearly increases. Feel free to reach out to me on Seeking Alpha or https://dividendincomestreams.substack.com/
