      ""seems like they would b good candidates for GLAD/3%""

      The GLAD/3% model already contain(in the SS) three CEFs....CLM, CFP and CRF all Cornerstone products. I found them to be the highest historical probability stocks for the greatest(90%) historical win rate.

      Also three BDCs....PSEC, MAIN and FSC are in the SS.

      One mReit....ARR

      You are correct in that I believe the CEFs are great stocks for GLAD/3% because they lend themselves to low volatile, consistent cycles, when you select the ones with high yield and monthly dividends. Keep in mind for those who wish to hold these funds that the majority of their dividend(distribution really) is a return of capital(ROC).

      If you find any other CEFs which are monthly payers(dividends), and have consistent win cycles(lo to hi) I would like to know.

      Good Luck..which we don't need with GLAD/3% as it is designed to remove luck from its equation....;-)
