Investing in the market creates a certain amount of stress. We expect that and tolerate it. What we cannot plan on are crooked brokers. Am referring to the indicted brokers from Goldman Sachs, who are partially responsible for the major drop in the market this past Friday. These people are already making huge salaries, but can't pass up ripping off investors to line their pockets thru illegal transactions. Wonder what their penalty should be? retiredafe8
NAV has been climbing also, thus not much change in the premium. My distributions are paid as more shares, so my number of shares added each month has been dropping a lot since March. Economy should remain stalled through this election year, meaning Fed won't be tightening interest rates and HIX holders won't be selling their shares to chase upward spiraling stocks. We'll find out in about 6 weeks what HIX will pay out in March-April-May. Stay at 9.5 cents I assume. I'm so diversified that it's probably a wash for me whatever the economy does -- at least that's my intention. Gone are the days of betting it all on Pets-dot-com.
