i already own a boatload of FT, but I couldn't pass up the current price levels and I added more this afternoon. It has been a nice, steady dividend payer, and even raised it once awhile back. Plus, it's selling at something like a 14% discount. I recommend checking it out at CEF Connect.
UTG seems to raise the distribution about once a year. It's a great income investment.
You want "safe ETFs"? You mean without risk? No such thing, especially among the dividend payers that have been hammered lately. First, you do realize that DNP is a CEF, not an ETF? IMNSHO, DNP is a good steady-eddy investment, especially if you DRIP the dividends.
For ETFs that pay good dividends, look at PCEF, an ETF of CEFs. It's an expensive fund, but it pays really good, consistent dividends. Want cheap ETFs? Check out VYM and VIG.
Someone else mentioned UTG. Like DNP, it is a CEF. I've owned it for some time, and would also suggest you check it out. It pays a good monthly dividend, that has been increased about once a year the last few years.
Vanguard's website says that payable date is 2 July. I think most, if not all, of the quarterly payouts are on 2 July.
When my buy order finally went thru ay $10.50, I said that you could plan on buying it cheaper. And, what is the closing price now? $10.27. You all are very welcome. When it hits $9.50, I'll back up the truck and load up.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Finally! My longstanding order to buy more DNP at $10.50 executed at the end of the day. I tell you all this because I expect that DNP will now trade much lower... that's what always happens to me: I buy, and then the stock tanks ;-) Oh, well...
