Listen to Tim Plaehn, editor of two newsletters – The Dividend Hunter and 30 Day Dividends – Tim is a longtime investor and investment analyst, and focuses on High Yield positions, looking typically at those designed for higher yield – REIT’s, Business Development Companies, Master Limited Partnerships, Closed End Funds, etc. These are investments designed for higher yields that need to be analyzed to determine if the dividend paid is appropriate for the cash flow and profitability of the company or fund. Tim tells listeners that his recommended portfolios usually offer a yield ranging from 4 to about 10% per year, averaging about 7.5% per year. This is a popular subject that any investor would find to be interesting, especially in light of the bond markets paying such low interest.
