We write a lot about income investments, however we also like to invest in powerful growth stocks, as well, because they add important diversification to an investment portfolio, and they can help keep your nest egg growing. This article focuses on one of the fastest growing companies in the US in terms of this year and next year’s sales growth, at scale. We provide an overview of the company’s attractive qualities, as well as a review of the common pitfalls to watch out for when investing for powerful long-term growth and capital appreciation.
This is a guest article from Yield Hunting. The article highlights some top muni closed-end-funds (“CEFs”). If you don’t know, you invest in muni CEFs to generate steady streams of tax-free income and compound it year after year. The non-quantitative benefit of muni CEFs are that natural downside hedge they can offer, especially on the high quality funds (non-high yield).
From time to time we like to share income-generating options trade ideas. Today, Boeing presents an interesting opportunity in light of heightened volatility and fear related to its second tragic 737 MAX plane crash in the last 5 months. Even if you don’t participate in this particular trade, it may help you generate future trading ideas of your own. Without further ado, here are the details…
If you’re an income-focused investor, you might be interested to know intermodal shipping container company, Triton International, just issued some very attractive 8.5% yield preferred shares this week. And as many of our readers know, we’ve written about the common shares of Triton, and we’ve also had success selling income-generating put optionson the common shares. But if you’re looking for high steady income (and less volatility) than the 6.5% yield of the common shares, consider this before you jump headfirst into these compelling new 8.5% yield preferreds.
If you are an income-focused contrarian investor, closed-end funds (“CEFs”) can be a corner of the market ripe with interesting opportunities.

Simon Property Group (SPG) offers an attractive 4.7% yield and a compelling valuation. However, it continues to face pressure from market fearmongers and negative sector narratives.

Navios Maritime Partners (NMM) generated enough operating cash flow to cover its distribution more than four times over, over the last quarter. And with a DCF yield of 36%, and shares trading at 1/3 estimated NAV (shares 97¢, NAV $2.91), is there any reason to believe this isn’t a prince of an investment? But of course there is more to this story… What follows is a guest article by Darren McCammon of Cash Flow Kingdom.

If you like attractive high yield investments, your search can take you to all corners of the market. This week’s Blue Harbinger Weekly compares the post dividend cut 4.6% yield of Kraft Heinz to the 8.8% dividend yield of PIMCO’s popular closed-end fund, PCI.
As the market has climbed dramatically this year, so too have many popular high yield REITs, such as SPG, O, WELL, VTR, OHI, STAG and WPC. And despite the Fed’s recently decreased interest rate hawkishness, it is still concerning to see these popular “safe haven” REITs did NOT fall nearly as hard as the rest of the market during Q4 and their share prices & valuations are now unusually high. When sentiment changes, these popular REITS are due for a pullback, perhaps a big one. This article reviews valuations and concludes with our opinions.

All Blue Harbinger portfolios delivered double digit gains in January easily outpacing the 8% gain for the S&P 500. What’s more, this violent market snapback has been mostly predictable, but the question is whether it tripped you up (did you panic and sell at the wrong time?).
