    33 Ways to Get Higher Yields

    For more than a decade, income investors have been plagued by paucity wrapped in misery. The bellwether 10-year Treasury note has doled out an average 2.6% interest since 2008. Although the Federal Reserve has nudged its target interest rate range to 2.25% to 2.50%, it has signaled that it's done raising rates for now.Even worse, the yield on the 10-year T-note briefly sank below the yield on the three-month T-bill--an unusual inversion that can sometimes herald a recession and lower yields ahead. The takeaway: Locking your money up for longer periods is rarely worth the negligible increase in yield. What could increase your yield these days? Being a little more adventurous when it comes to credit quality. When you're a bond investor, you're also a lender, and borrowers with questionable credit must pay higher yields. Similarly, stocks with above-average yields probably have some skeletons in their balance sheets. You can ameliorate credit risk--but not eliminate it--through diversification. Invest in a mutual fund, say, rather than a single issue. And invest in several different types of high-yielding investments--for example, investment-grade bonds, preferred stocks and real estate investment trusts--rather than just one category.Despite such caveats, income investing is not as bad as it was in 2015, when it was hard to milk even a penny's interest out of a money market. Now you can get 3.3% or more from no-risk certificates of deposit at a bank. We'll show you 33 ways to find the best yields for the risk you're willing to take, ranging from 2% all the way up to 12%. Just remember that the higher the payout, the greater the potential for some rough waters. SEE ALSO: 20 of Wall Street's Newest Dividend Stocks
