PCI: Attractive 8.6% Yield, But Know The Big Risks

The PIMCO Dynamic Credit and Mortgage Income Fund (PCI) is an attractive CEF for a variety of reasons (including its big 8.6% yield and discounted price versus NAV). However, a look under the hood shows that PCI is exposed to some very big risks. This article provides an overview of the fund, reviews the big risks investors may want to consider, and concludes with our opinion about investing in PCI.

Teekay Preferred On Sale: Attractive +10% Yield, But Know The Big Risks

Teekay Offshore offers attractive, high-yield (+10%), preferred shares, that are currently trading at a lower price than normal and thereby offering a relatively attractive entry point for investors. This article offers an explanation of why the shares sold-off, why the investment is attractive, and what are the big risks that investors should consider. We conclude with our views on the attractiveness of this high-yield opportunity.

Main Street Capital: Attractive 6% Yield, But Know The Big Risks

Main Street Capital (MAIN) is a popular income-investor Business Development Company (“BDC”) because it offers an attractive 6% yield, and both the dividend payments and the security price have been increasing significantly for years. This article briefly reviews the company and its many attractive qualities, then gets into the big risk factors that investors should be aware of. We conclude with our views on whether MAIN is still an attractive security to own or if it’s time to look elsewhere.

Overblown Fear: Attractive 8.7% Yield, On Sale

This Closed-End Fund is attractive after the recent sell-off, not only because it yields 8.7%, but also because overblown fear has caused it to trade at an unusually large discount to its net asset value. Strong management, very reasonable management fees, a prudent and conservative use of leverage, and a powerful market style allocation, all make this CEF attractive and worth considering.

A Blue Chip Among Blue Chips—With A Healthy Growing Dividend

If you’re looking for wild aggressive growth, this stock is NOT for you. If you’re looking to “sleep well at night” while also receiving steady growing dividend payments and a share price that will likely rise more than enough to offset the dangers of inflation, then this blue chip among blue chips is worth considering. We’ve owned it for years, it has performed very well, and we expect its strength to continue for many years into the future.

New Purchase: Sell-Off Creates Attractive "Disciplined Growth" Opportunity

This is a brief note to let our members know that we have initiated a new position in our Blue Harbinger Disciplined Growth portfolio. This is a name we mentioned in our “Members-Only Shopping List” over the weekend, and with the shares down again today, we’ve started a position. This is NOT a dividend stock, it’s a powerful growth company.

Another Powerful Growth Stock to Nibble At

Growth stocks are great—until the market turns. However, if you can find a company with such a powerful marketplace opportunity, that it can buck the larger “style box” trends (e.g. growth vs value) and continue to grow under just about any conditions, it’s worth considering. Here is one stock that looks to have found a special market opportunity, and we believe it is worth considering. And if you’re going to buy, starting with a small bite might be prudent.

A Powerful, Under-The-Radar, Growth Stock—On Sale!

We’re adding a new, powerful, under-the-radar, growth stock to our watchlist. This is a company that has sold-off hard in recent months despite the fact that its business is getting MUCH more attractive. Somewhat ironically, it’s the market’s inability to correctly process this company’s vastly improved business model that has caused the stock to sell-off, thereby making it even more attractive. We haven’t hit the buy button yet, but we have a very itchy trigger finger on this one.

4 Powerful Growth Stocks To Buy, Especially After Wednesday's Sell-Off

Nervous short-term profit-taking and a sympathy sell-off from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey's testimony before Congress yesterday, combined to create some very attractive opportunities to buy a handful of powerful growth stocks, especially if you're a dip-buyer.

This Healthy Dividend Stock Will Grow As Nat Gas Volumes Boom

If you're looking for an attractive dividend plus continuing price appreciation, the natural gas compression equipment companies are worth considering. Specifically, this niche industry is booming thanks to an ongoing secular trend of increasing natural gas volumes due to relatively recent technological advances as well as environmental concerns. This detailed write-up is from Darren McCammon of the highly successful Cash Flow Kingdom (a membership service of which we are a paying customer).

Attractive Dividend Dog Of The Dow: Anti Froth-Chasers, Trade War Fearmongers

“Dogs of the Dow” is basically a high-dividend contrarian strategy, whereby an investor selects annually for investment the ten Dow Jones (DIA) stocks with the highest dividend yields. This article reviews one particular Dog that we consider particularly attractive right now because of overblown trade war fears, its low volatility, its big growing dividend, and because the market is vastly underestimating its improved business.

Income Investors: This Attractive 6.9% Yielder Just Sold-Off

If you are an income-focused investor, there are lots of reasons to consider making an allocation to this attractive high-yielder, such as the high yield, monthly payments, attractively discounted price, hard to access investments, and its potential to be an effective hedge against rising interest rates. But before you dive in headfirst, you should also consider the risks. This type of investment is not for everyone, but if you like high monthly income, this one is worth considering, especially after the recent big and unwarranted sell-off.

Omega Healthcare: Attractive 8.9% Yield, Big Risks Ahead of Earnings

There is a lot of gloom and doom surrounding big-dividend REIT Omega Healthcare (OHI). The negativity originates mainly from Omega’s many troubled operators. And investor fear has grown as short-interest remains high, the share price has been volatile, and the very recently announced termination of restructuring support for Orianna. With Omega expected to announce earnings this week, this article reviews the big risks before concluding with our views on who may or may not want to own this high-income REIT.

An Attractive, Double-Digit, Tax-Advantaged Yield

This is a guest article from Darren McCammon. Darren runs the highly successful Cash Flow Kingdom on Seeking Alpha. We are paying-members of Darren’s service, and appreciate the high quality investment ideas he shares. This particular article is about an attractive, tax-advantaged, maritime shipping company that currently offers a yield in excess of 10%.

Tsakos: Tempting High Yields, Cash Flows Uncertain

Tsakos Energy Navigation (TNP) is a marine shipping company (mainly crude oil) that offers an array of high-yield equities including 5 series of preferred shares with dividend yields from 7.9% to 9.5% and common shares offering a 5.8% dividend yield. But before you start trying to decide which of Tsakos’ many high-yield securities you want to invest in, you might first want to consider whether you believe the business will actually produce the cash flows necessary to support those payments to investors. This article details the two biggest risks threatening Tsakos’ future ability to pay, and then reviews the differences between the company’s array of high yield securities. We conclude with our thoughts on how income-focused investors might want to “play” Tsakos.

Members Mailbag: Oxford Square’s 11.5% Yield

We recently received an inquiry from one of our members about BDC Oxford Square Capital (OXSQ). It’s tempting considering its huge 11.5% yield, its discounted price-to-book, and its very low market beta. However, investors need to be aware of several very important things, including the vast difference between its price and total return, the very strong relationship between OXSQ’s price-to-book value and credit spreads, and how big hedge funds, including Citadel and Millennium, are trading in and out of this name regularly.
