Stocks are off to their best start in 32 years. But as you can see in the chart, the strong start comes after an absolutely abysmal 4th quarter. This report reviews the current state of the rebound and opportunities from the perspective of high income closed-end funds. We conclude with investment ideas and advice.
In this members-only version of our Top 10 list, we review the Top 5 high-yield contrarian opportunities. Without further ado, here is the list…
We currently own 5 high-income equity Closed-End Funds (CEFs) each yielding 9.8%, 7.5%, 7.2%, 7.2% and 10.0%, respectively. This report reviews our thesis for each position, and concludes with our decision to hold, buy more, or search for new opportunities.
This article details multiple attractive opportunities to capture >6%+ yields. And because these attractive income opportunities are all CEFs, they offer investors a little something extra in terms of their currently discounted prices versus their NAVs. If you're an income-focused investor, these CEFs are worth considering.
If you are an income-focused value investor, some CEFs are currently offering highly attractive “double discounts” heading into 2018. CEF investors should be aware of the distribution income sources, including dividends as well as capital gains, for example. This article reviews our current CEF holdings and several top ideas for 2018.
Closed-end funds (CEFs) aren’t for everyone, but if you like high income, discounted prices, special dividends, and attractive strategies, we’ve highlighted four compelling opportunities in this article. We currently own all four of them.
If you are an income-focused investor, big-distribution closed-end funds ("CEFs") can be very attractive, but there are a few things investors need to be aware of. This article reviews important pros and cons of CEFs, and then highlights three of our favorite high-income CEFs that income-focused investors may want to consider.
As a follow up to our free article titled “10 Attractive High-Yield Blue Chips, For Contrarians,” this members-only article highlights five more attractive opportunities. And in this case, we currently own all five of these investments.
This report is a continuation of our free public report titled "15 Attractive +7% Yields Worth Considering" except in this members-only version, we share the Top 5. We believe all five are extremely attractive high-income opportunities, and we own all 5 of the top 5.
This week’s Weekly provides an update and outlook for seven of our existing Blue Harbinger holdings. Specifically, we remain bullish on our healthcare REIT holding, we see more big gains on the industrials stock we purchased last summer, we remain comfortable with our commercial real estate position (despite signs the industry may soon slow), and finally, our four recent CEF purchases have seen their discounts to NAV start to shrink (a good thing), they continue to pay very large distributions, and we remain very bullish on their strategies.
The purpose of this post is to provide an update on several new trades in the Blue Harbinger Income Equity strategy. Specifically, we have added several new attractive closed-end funds (CEFs) that offer very healthy yields. We also sold one of our biggest yielding individual stocks, and we provide a rationale for the sale.
This particular closed-end fund (CEF) offers an attractive 7.6% yield, an amazing track record of top-notch management, and currently trades at an exceptionally attractive discount to its net asset value (NAV). We are also very comfortable with its holdings, particularly its sector exposures, and believe it’s poised to deliver very strong future returns.
