Do a lot (no, I mean A LOT) of research, reading etc.Start out with the big boys, more liquid, highly respected, good management.MAINPSECFSC These are three that come to mind. Use a limit order, and don't overpay or "chase" the stock.Buy on pullbacks. Sell puts at where you want to own them would be a good strategy. I am half income, 1/4 growth and 1/4 cash right now. BDCs and REITs make up 40% of my income 50%, or to put it another way 20% of my total portfolio. (10% each category) Not sure I would go any higher.Stay away from the new BDC leveraged ETNs.REM is a good way to play mREITs if you must, but buy on a pullback, it's been on a tear.
