AINV for yield

November 17, 2013 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: GE , T , AINV

Since I still am a believer that "Yield is King" I can't urge people enough to buy AINV.  It is an inexpensive BDC that took a beating along with many others during the crash.  However it has made tremendous strides in improving its "book."  It reinstated its dividend and currently pays .80 annually.  As time goes by this yield should increase.  Personally I am a strong fan of MLPs and BDCs.  MLPs give you unique beneficial tax treatments and BDCs are required to return 90% of its income back to the shareholder.  [more]



Gold still Owns

I need an intervention. I am an EBAY junkie.  I am mesmerized by gold and silver coins.  When gold is under $1,300 I buy old world gold coins.  When gold is above $1,300 I buy silver coins.  I don't buy the bullion coins.  I buy the actual "currency" coins.  With those you hold not only the PM but history in your hands.  Apmex sells many European gold coins which I like to buy.  Since I am in NY I have to pay sales tax if under $1,000 so I buy at least 4 coins of the .1867 coins.  [more]
