VVR: A Fixed-Income Fund For Rising Rates

Jan. 05, 2023 12:41 PM ETInvesco Senior Income Trust (VVR)AGG20 Comments


  • The Federal Reserve's interest rate tightening scheme has had a negative effect on most fixed-income securities.
  • Invesco Senior Income Trust invests in floating-rate loans, which should prove more resilient to rising rates than traditional bonds.
  • The fund maintains a very well-diversified portfolio to ensure that default risk is fairly minimal.
  • The fund is paying its distribution solely out of net investment income, which should be comforting for risk-averse investors.
  • The fund is trading at a reasonably attractive valuation right now.

In-depth Research on underfollowed dividend stocks with 7%+ yields
Power Hedge is an independent stock research and analysis firm with a passion for macro- and microeconomic analysis. Power Hedge focuses our research primarily on dividend-paying, international companies of all sizes with sustainable competitive advantages. Power Hedge is neither a permabear nor a permabull. However, we believe that, given the current structural problems in the United States, the best investment opportunities may lie elsewhere in the world. The firm's strategy is primarily buy and hold, but will stray from that strategy on occasion. Our ideal holding period is forever, however we realize that both internal and external forces can impact an investment. For this reason, we believe that it is vital to keep a close eye on all of your investments. We do not believe in changing an investment based on short-term market swings.

Traditionally, we have not always responded to comments but in order to improve the quality of our research, comments will be reviewed and we will respond to issues regarding errors or omissions. This does not include our premium service, "Energy Profits In Dividends" which is available from the Seeking Alpha Marketplace. This service does include detailed discussions with our team both on the reports themselves and in a private forum.

I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from Seeking Alpha). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
