25 Popular Funds To Sell, 5 To Buy Instead (For 7.2% Dividends!)

The average yield among the 25 largest dividend exchange-traded funds is a meager 2.7% right now. That means if you plunked a $1 million on ETFs dedicated to dividend stocks, you’d only make $27,000 every year. That’s barely higher than the 2018 federal poverty level for a family of four ($25,100)! But you and I […]

My Personal 8-Step Plan For 8% Dividends In CEFs

Today, the 10-year Treasury pays just 2.7%. Put a million bucks in T-Bills, and you’re banking $27,000 per year. Barely above poverty levels!
