BDCL And Its 16.7% Yield Might Warrant Your Consideration


Why Consider BDCL Again? The primary reason to buy any of the 2x Leveraged High-Yield ETNs, such as the UBS ETRACS 2x Leveraged Long Wells Fargo® Business Development Company ETN (NYSEARCA: BDCL), is the high current yields. I have written about my portfolio where the most important constraint is to only include securities with current yields above 15%. Other constraints are the typical retail IRA account restrictions which preclude the use of short-selling, margin borrowing, most options strategies and futures contracts. Some brokerage firms also impose additional constraints on IRA accounts.

Buckeye Partners: Don't Get Tricked Chasing This 7% Yielder

Buckeye Partners LP (NYSE: BPL) is going private, having agreed to be acquired by IFM - a large Australian infrastructure fund - for a 28% premium to the May 9 unaffected close. Yield-oriented investors may find the company's 7%+ yield attractive. However, in all likelihood, the deal will close prior to the Q4 payout, not giving some investors the annualized yield they expect.
Fundamental developments at the company have also been strong recently, causing some investors to want to take a closer look at BPL as an investment opportunity. For instance, the company appears to be recovering well from Hurricane Dorian's impact to operations and the company's Texas Partners terminal in Corpus Christi is generating delivery value for the business. Ultimately, these are likely to be... more

Revisiting A Dividend Portfolio Of The World's Best Dividend ETFs

Prologue
In February 2017, I wrote what has turned out to be, in terms of page views, my second most popular article ever for this platform. That article? A Dividend Portfolio Built From The World's Best Dividend ETFs.
In short, that article took advantage of the combined filtering criteria of 5 world-class, dividend-focused ETFs in an attempt to find between 12-15 stocks which an investor desirous of starting their own dividend-focused portfolio could seriously consider as a starting point.
Five months later, in July 2017, I followed that with my most popular article, 20 Top Stocks For A Monthly Dividend Portfolio, which built on the work of the first article but selected a few additional stocks such that one would receive at least some dividends each and every month. At the... more
