The market (SPY) has been on fire this year (+21.4%), however plenty of very attractive long-term investment opportunities remain. This week’s Weekly shares the performance of each of our holdings across all three of our strategies, and then provides concise commentary on attractive opportunities among REITs, healthcare, growth stocks and our high-income low-beta “Alternative Fixed Income” strategy. We conclude with a little advice.
If you are looking for attractive high yield, this healthcare focused CEF is worth considering. Not only does it trade at an attractive discount to NAV, but the experienced management team’s approach to investing in the healthcare sector offers additional attractive benefits. The fund uses a healthy dose of leverage (and it does so prudently), and the strategy is poised for attractive long-term total returns.
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.
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.
