One of the Bad Things About Not Having Been Obamaed...

is that you have to keep finding out where to invest your money when your bonds either mature or are called.  At the risk of getting overweighted in one company, BCS/PRD still looks good.  It currently has a 7.87% yield and has been paying absurdly high dividends for several years for me.

AVIVA PLC SECS 8.25%41 AVV is also attractive with a 8.03% yield.  It is hard to imagine President Clinton screwing over an insurance company.  AT&T (T) is still around, making their money in places like Mexico.  Current yield is 4.89%, but it has been growing in value for a number of years.

What is your opinion of Doubleline Income Solutions? Symbol DSL, it's a closed end fund. At price of $18.70/share and monthly dividend of 15 cents it's paying 9.6%.

Not bad. You're getting close to breaking even in regards to the real inflation rate.

Huh? CPI rose 1.5% last year. I know CPI has serious problems, but I am not seeing the galloping inflation of the 1970s.

jimlongx: Looks interesting. I need to restore my memory of closed end funds.
