Today we’re going to discuss six “retirement maker” funds that pay dividends up to 10.8% annually. You will not find these types of yields in mainstream financial publications. Here’s why.

It’s important for you to fade Wall Street’s advertising machine and buy value, not hype – especially when it comes to dividend payers. Stick with excellent yet off-the-beaten-trail CEFs (closed-end funds) and ignore the marketing machines promoting their latest overrated ETFs (exchange traded funds).

On average, an American retiree spends about $4,000 per month. But few of those retirees are getting $4,000 from their nest egg—which is partly why bankruptcy rates among retirees have been soaring for years.

A couple days ago, we showed you how to get $4,000 in monthly income from just 4 stocks.

A bonus? Each of these buys pays dividends every single month—precisely when your bills roll in.

That $4,000 number was no accident; it’s the average amount a 65- to 74-year-old couple in the United States spends every month, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That makes this a great number to shoot for when you’re building your own retirement nest egg.

And today we’re going to go further, with 4 funds that give you an extra margin of safety while you’re pocketing the same amount of income—a nice $4k a month—in your golden years.…
