Ray usually likes to trot out his high yield dividend plays... I know the insurance companies salt their portfolios with those as well.

Yup. I just grabbed me some HPT-D (yahoo: hpt-pd) new preferred issue, at a yield of 7.17%, non-callable for 5 years.
Life is good!

(And to think -- I could instead have used that money to pay off my 4.00% mortgage, like all the retirement guru's recommend. *WHAT EVER* was I thinking? :facepalm: ) </snark>
