How much is this sale worth, exactly?
- A regular subscription to CEF/ETF Income Laboratory costs $49/month on a monthly plan (which equates to $588/year), or $439/year on annual plan.
- An introductory discount of 20% is currently available, bringing the monthly rate to $39.20/month and the annual rate to $351.20/year, for the first year. This is the rate you will get if you sign up during our promotion period without messaging me first!
- Our Labor Day sale is offering an EXTRA 20% off the annual plan, bringing the rate to an extremely low price of $280.96/year for the first year, which equates to only $23.41/month, or less than $0.77 a day! This gives a discount percentage of 36% compared to the regular annual plan (or 52% compared to the monthly plan), corresponding to an instant savings of $158 (or $307 for the monthly plan).
To get our most generous discount, you must message me first to express your interest. This is also so that I can ensure that only the first 50 members are eligible for this offer. Our community is growing fast so we don't expect these spots to last long!
Best of all, our 2-week free trial period still applies. Cancel before the free trial period is up and you won't be charged a single penny.
We currently offer four portfolios:
The Tactical Income-100 ("TI-100") portfolio is our more active income portfolio designed to take advantage of mean reversion, special situations and deep-value opportunities. It has a mandate to invest in both CEFs and ETFs/ETNs, although currently (as of August 2020) it is fully invested in CEFs. The portfolio was incepted on January 1, 2017.
The Income Generator ("IG") portfolio is a CEF-only portfolio designed for the more passive investor and places a greater emphasis on steady distributions, quality management and historical performance. However, we still do execute our CEF rotation strategy with this portfolio, just less frequently than for the TI-100 portfolio.
The Taxable Income portfolio is a CEF-only portfolio designed to maximize after-tax income by investing in muni funds, tax-managed funds and tax-advantaged funds. This portfolio was incepted on July 1, 2019. It uses YYY (ETF of CEFs) and GAA (global balanced ETF) as its main benchmarks.
The ETF Income portfolio is designed as an ETF only portfolio. It is our most recently launched portfolio model! This portfolio will remain more passive and the ETF approach helps that as they are passive investments themselves. That being said, there will be minimum trading in this portfolio. Investors that don't like the volatility created by CEF premiums and discounts might find this the most appropriate.
The Tactical Income-100 has a current dividend yield of 8.12%, Income Generator portfolio is yielding 10.10%, Taxable Income is at 6.56% and our ETF Income portfolio is throwing off a yield of 7.62%!
This means some serious monthly income that you can enjoy your retirement with! Even at these higher yields, we have been able to GROW Income.
In fact, since inception, our portfolios have been able to produce attractive income growth - while still maintaining a high level of income in the first place of near 8% and higher! This is a factor of the underlying increasing their payouts, and it is also a factor of our swap trades. These swap trades allow us to increase our share count for "free!" More shares = greater income = happier bank account!
Our Income Generator Portfolio generated growth of 35.54% in quarterly dividend income!
Our Tactical Income-100 Portfolio grew quarterly income by 28.64%!
Note: The 'spikes' in income at the end of the year and the beginning of the years are due to special distributions being paid out. This is when many CEFs pay out their required amount of capital gains/income to stay within compliance of the RIC status. For our Tactical Income-100 Portfolio, this distorts the chart quite significantly.
