what do you rely on for investment income? I am fine -tunng andneed all the help I can get as I am certain do we all!!

I managed to assemble a diversified portfolio of trust preferred stocks about 5 years ago before interest rates got very low. Some have been called, but others continue to pay, and though some are in less than ideal industries, so far diversification has been comforting (and nothing has turned into a bankruptcy).

I also have NQS and BLE closed end bond funds. And I have done well with SPH and more recently OK with APU. I also have some recently purchased dividend stocks.
