Here’s something few people realize about closed-end funds (CEFs): sometimes, when it comes to these funds, matching the market means you’re actually beating the market.

Let me show you what I mean using the AGIC Equity and Convertible Income Fund (NIE), a CEF I recommended earlier this year. NIE has been meeting the S&P 500’s performance, though most people don’t know it.

And by meeting the S&P but giving investors a 7.5% dividend yield, it’s helped income investors actually beat the market if they’d chosen a “dumb” index fund like the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) instead.

First, let’s address the hidden returns.… Read more

We need to talk about a rare double discount in the stock market that’s out there now—just waiting for us to jump on it.

And doing so couldn’t be easier. It all comes down to 3 funds primed to spike when one of these discounts closes—and then spike again when the second one snaps shut!

Both of these ridiculous markdowns are already starting to narrow, so we need to make our move soon.

One other thing: these 3 funds pay massive dividends—from 7.4% to 11.7%!

Before I reveal the names of these funds, let’s talk about the first discount: the massive undervaluation of the stock market—and when we can expect investors to go from extreme fear to extreme greed.…

Today I’m going to show you 4 funds that, when put together, give you a juicy 7.2% dividend yield.

Oh, and there is capital gains upside here for you, too.

The reason for that upside is that all of these funds are trading at a pretty big discount to their net asset value (NAV).

Let me explain.

Each of these picks is a “closed-end fund,” a unique type of fund that has a few key advantages over more familiar mutual funds and exchange-traded funds.…

Back in February 2016, I wrote an article titled “4 Reasons to Buy This 9.2% Yielding Equity Fund”. That fund was the AGIC Equity and Convertible Income Fund (NIE).

Since then, NIE has done this:

Almost 50% Gains in a Year and a Half

Oh, and did I mention that NIE pays a 7.4% dividend? That’s right: $100,000 in this fund gives you $616 per month in cash.

Despite the conventional wisdom about dividend yields, that high yield doesn’t come with high risks. Not only has NIE been growing its dividend since 2009, but that income stream is well covered by the fund’s investments—again, thanks to its big returns, as we see in the chart above.…
