Don't know your objective but if its only 7% or better payout you might want tax free mun9i bonds. You should be able to get a 5.5 to 6% interest yield on a 30year bond. Make sure you get your state's bonds to avoid state and federal income taxes. An make sure they do not count under the alternative minimum tax. If your federal margin tax rate is 31% and your state rate is 5% that adds to 36% for taxes. Thus your tax free muni rate only needs to be 64% of you taxable requirement. If you want a taxable 7% you only need a tax free rate of about 4.5%. Muni's look like the way for you to go. You should get a taxable equivalent of about 9.3% with a lot less risk of capital loss than with stocks.
