Have a look at FLY (aircraft leasing) and SFL (oil tankers, container ships and drilling rigs). EVV is a short duration closed-end bond fund and HPF/HPI and virtually identical closed-end preferred share funds. I bought FLY, SFL, EVV and HPF during the late 2008 and early 2009 market "sale", along with AWP. If the current sell-off continues, I will be adding to my positions.
SFL is good, I own some. I'd avoid T, it's a DOG. Had it and sold it for a small loss, dead money.
Anyone know why AWP has taken such a hit recently? It holds a bunch of REITs, and my CGMRX REIT mutual fund has been hit hard too.
Another of my CEFs has really gotten hammered, CYE, pays out almost 10%, the price has taken a big hit without a corresponding drop (not as much, as least) in the NAV. Weird....it's mostly corporate junk bonds, but they're earning more than they're paying out...
Lastly, you asked for stocks, but I have 3 global/emerging CEFs that have also been knocked down big, but they're still my best gainers: LDF, CEE, and MSF, all good year-end div (or cap gains) payers, so hold them in a tax sheltered account.
I would suggest if you do these or not.Take the time to post them as one of your portfolios on smartmoney.com at todays cost per share.Then you can benchmark them aganist the DOW ,S&P, anytime starting from when you post it.I'll bet they do about the same,maybe better.Most of these stocks raise their pay out at least once a year.
With $5,000 in vested in each stock they would pay gross per year, without the raises.
