High-Yield Opportunity: Discounted Price, Compelling Strategy

If your primary objective as an investor is to generate attractive total returns from which you can source steady income payments, then you may want to consider the closed-end fund (“CEF”) described in this article. It offers big monthly income distributions, a discounted price, compelling real estate market conditions, no risky leverage, and a long-term track record of success. However investors should be aware that a portion of the income distributions are sourced from capital gains (in a tax-efficient manner), so don’t expect the value of this investment to climb dramatically over the long-term, unless you’re reinvesting those big juicy monthly distribution checks.
