9 Great Income Investments You’ve Never Heard Of

2018-08-08 investorplace
Like income? If you’re reading this, then you likely do. And odds are good you’re more than a little familiar with the usual suspects … utilities stocks like Southern Co (NYSE:SO), or diversified healthcare giant Pfizer (NYSE:PFE). The former is recession proof, while the latter always seems able to find a market by constantly reinventing its drug portfolio, making them a couple of the best income-producing assets the market has to offer.

Reducing Risk In High-Yield Income Strategies

2018-08-06 seekingalpha
My portfolio has been in transition since 2015, moving further towards a high-yield income strategy, and away from individual stocks and their single-issue risk in favor of the diversification offered by funds – mainly closed-end funds (CEFs) and ETFs. The original portfolio already included higher-yield positions such as Omega Healthcare Investors (OHI), Hercules Capital (HTGC), Main Street Capital (MAIN), Starwood Property Trust (STWD), and Gladstone Investment (GAIN), and both Hercules and Starwood have survived the transition.
