<<Howeverm I'm always on the lookout for a better alternative. Does anyone know of one?>>Look at preferred stock issued by closed-end funds. Source Capital Preferred (SOR-) trades on the NYSE and currently yields about 8%. SOR is a well-established fund and its preferred dividend is more than adequately covered. General American Investors and Royce Value also have preferred shares. Furthermore, if taxes are a consideration, a portion of the dividends are taxed at capital gains rates.Don
