Volatility is back! With the market whipsawing again, you’re likely seeing more red in your portfolio these days.

At times like this, you might be tempted to give in to emotion and sell. That’s understandable—self-preservation is, after all, our most powerful instinct.

But keep your nerve. Because now is the time for contrarians like us to get greedy for yield—and upside.

Here’s why: American companies’ earnings are strong, their revenues are rising, and there are no indications of a recession anytime soon.

I’ll go through these points one by one, because it’s important to see how the data disagrees with the panicky noise the media publishes these days.… Read more

Today we’re going to dive into a question subscribers to our CEF Insider service often ask: what happens to a closed-end fund’s dividend when stocks take a tumble?

The answer is coming up shortly (and if you’re at all worried about this levitating market suddenly snapping back, you’re going to like what I have to show you).

Then I’m going to reveal one 6.6%-paying fund whose management is dialed in to market swings and know how to protect their investors’ income when things get rough.

How do I know? Because they did just that in the 2008-09 crisis.

More on that shortly.… Read more

Imagine if you could find a single signal that would warn you when a recession is on the horizon.

Well, one such indicator does exist—and it’s telling us that storm clouds are indeed building. That means it’s time for contrarians like us to get greedy for income (and gains)!

I’ll explain this seeming contradiction—and name a 6.7%-yielding fund that should be on your list—in a second. First, here’s more on this reliable “recession indicator.”

A Three-Decade History of Being Right

Campbell Harvey, an economist at Duke University, knows all about this recession signal: he was the first person to run across it, over 30 years ago.… Read more

If you’re like, well, everybody, you’ve been mulling these three questions lately:

Is this “tariff tantrum” the end of the bull market? Is it time to sell? Or buy more?

I’ll deal with the first question in a second. Meantime, let’s start with the second one: no, it is not time to sell. Because after all, we need to stay invested to keep our dividend checks rolling in.

What about buying?

Yes, it’s still a great time to buy—especially in one corner of the market where 6%+ dividends are everywhere: closed-end funds (CEFs).

In a moment, I’ll reveal a CEF whose yield recently soared to nearly 7%!… Read more

The headlines say it all: the economy is slowing down, right?

And with stocks soaring—up 11% year to date—we must be headed for a correction.

Both statements would be off the mark.

Because the economic numbers the government is putting out (and the press is repeating without question) are flawed. I’ll show you how in a moment.

First, let’s cut straight to the upshot: you’ve still got a great shot at buying high-yield closed-end funds (CEFs) now, particularly those that hold America’s best stocks. I’ll name two choices yielding 7.3%+ at the end of this article.

First, let’s zero in on the many economic tailwinds (some in disguise), that are driving this still-solid opportunity.… Read more

Today I’m going to reveal a powerful secret that could boost your dividend income 4X.

I’m talking about a massive 7.5% income stream here (or nearly 4X the yield on the average S&P 500 stock)—and your capital will grow nicely while you pocket your dividend cash, too.

Solid payouts like that put financial independence within reach, because with just $500K invested, a 7.5% yield would hand you $3,125 a month in income. That’s higher than the $2,600 the average American makes.

And unlike that average American, you won’t have to troop off to work every morning to get your “paycheck.” Plus you won’t have to sell a single stock in retirement to pull this off.… Read more

Monday’s major jump in stocks is the beginning of a trend that will catch a lot of investors by surprise: fundamental strength thanks to trade war fears abating.

We aren’t out of the woods yet, as Tuesday showed us. While the market cheered the tentative cease-fire between Xi and Trump on Monday, the lack of details and confusion hit the market on Tuesday.

And that’s a good thing, because it’s set up investors for an opportunity to buy equities cheap before the relief rally around the corner.

Trade Ceasefire Opens Buy Window …

The way I see it, the trade-war ceasefire is likely the beginning of a deal coming down the pipe in the next three months.… Read more

I’m sure you noticed that when America decided on a Republican-majority Senate and Democrat-majority House, the markets jumped.

The best news: it’s just the beginning of what’s likely to be a long-term uptrend in stocks. So if you sold during the recent market panic, you’re going to miss out on that upswing—that is, unless you buy now.

But what to buy? While the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY) is already up 3.6% since the end of October, it still has gains ahead because of slower investors who haven’t come back into the market  after last month’s panic selling. If you buy now, you might beat a lot of them to the punch.… Read more

From what I hear from readers these days, a lot of people out there are compulsively clicking the “refresh” button, living in fear of the next 500+-point drop in the Dow.

But is now the time to actually start panicking?

We’re going to dive into that question today. I’ll also reveal 1 fund that protects your nest egg with a unique form of “insurance” while handing you a huge 7.5% cash payout.

More on this lifesaving “pullback-proof” dividend a little further on. First, we need to talk about …

Why the Pundits Are Wrong (Again)

The market wipeout has had one extra element that’s added even more terror: dire warnings from the semiconductor industry, which sent Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Texas Instruments (TXN) and Nvidia (NVDA) into free-fall and badly beat up the benchmark VanEck Vectors Semiconductor ETF (SMH).Read more

Something strange is happening in the investment-bank and hedge-fund world: a growing sense that the next recession (which, by the way, Wall Street has long been wrongly predicting for years) finally has a due date: 2020.

The number of Wall Street firms predicting this date is staggering.

Bloomberg’s Joe Wisenthal has collected a few predictions, such as one from Moody’s Analytics chief economist Mark Zandi, who said 2020 will be the economic “inflection point,” and Société Générale’s economic team, who said the likelihood of a 2020 recession has risen due to, among other things, a tight labor market and higher borrowing costs.… Read more
