Today I want to show you how to build a “three-click” income portfolio that gives us three things every income investor craves, especially these days:

Members of my CEF Insider service know this well: that 6.9% figure is exactly what our 17-fund portfolio yields today, with the highest payer of the bunch throwing off an outsized 8.1% payout as I write this.

And that’s before we even talk about gains! Investors who’ve been with us since launch in early 2017 have enjoyed a tidy 11.9% annualized return (with dividends reinvested), a gain that consistently leaves inflation in the dust.… Read more
