But there is no income for the investor here.Maybe a play for the value board people?Chuck ****************************In my experience, cash from capital gains spends just as well as any other cash.Seriously, I don't see much value in the stuff that yield hogs traditionally chase. Junk is at extremely foolishly small spreads and weak covenants. High quality stuff (treasuries, investment grade corporates, etc.) are getting hurt by a rising rate environment. There is a large herd of not so bright people driving down yields on dividend stocks. Preferreds are in rather thin air. The only bright spots for income look like a select few closed end funds, but you have to be very careful and selective. And there are the market-leading pen fed 3% 5 year CDs for a few more days. That is about it, so I am fishing in other ponds to the extent I bait a hook at all. I recently bough some emerging market stocks via ETF because they look relatively cheap and I needed to increase my allocation. No an income play.
