If you’ve read the headlines about tech’s woeful slump in the past couple weeks, you might think stocks are out of favor.

You’d be wrong—and this chart proves it:

Forget the Headlines: Stocks Are Rolling

After February’s gut-wrenching plunge, the S&P 500 has more than recovered and is up 6.2% year to date. If this trend continues, we’re looking at a 12.4% return on the year.

But look at the orange line above—that’s the tech-benchmark Invesco QQQ Trust (QQQ), which is up 13.2% year to date, even after this latest correction in tech. That adds up to a monstrous 26.4% return for 2018 if that trend continues.…

If I’ve heard it once I’ve heard it a thousand times: if you want big dividends, you can forget about getting big price upside, too.

Clearly, whoever came up with this “wisdom” is clueless about closed-end funds, where hefty 7%+ yields are common. Fast double-digit gains, too—especially if you follow the one true CEF profit indicator I’ll show you now.

It’s called the discount to net asset value (NAV), and you can find it on any online fund screener. In plain English, it’s the difference between a CEF’s market price and its “true” value—or what its underlying assets are worth.

I’m going to get straight to brass tacks. Let’s discuss 2 closed-end funds with up to 18% upside in the next 12 months, plus yields up to 5.8%. Both are leading a blockbuster trend almost everyone has missed.

I’m talking about the quiet rebound in actively managed funds (that is, funds with real humans in charge), including CEFs.

If you’ve been reading my CEF Insider service or my weekly articles on Contrarian Outlook, you know I don’t go near a closed-end fund unless it hands us two things:

  1. A fat, sustainable dividend
  2. A big discount to net asset value (NAV, or the value of its underlying assets)

Today I’m going to show you 4 CEFs that give us these two things in spades, with safe dividend yields up to 8.2% and ridiculous discounts either at or near double digits! (If you’re unfamiliar with CEFs, click here for a quick overview of these exciting high-yield investments).

So if you’re looking to bag solid dividends up to 8.2% at a nice discount (and who isn’t?), read on!…
