Q: Iíd like to start a position in one or more income funds that offer a very high yield, but Iím not sure which ones to choose. As of Wednesday Oct 5th, these are the indicated yields Iíve found:

CLM 23.92%
PDBC 20.65%
SDIV 15.31%
QYLD 14.19%
RYLD 14.05%
XYLD 13.05%
BIGZ 11.01%
JEPI 10.94%
PDO 10.90%
PDI 10.79%
BXMT 10.38%
MPW 10.17%
STWD 9.84%
EIT.UN 9.42%
IDV 8.15%

Would you recommend any of these or do you have other suggestions? Are any of them too risky if the bear market deteriorates from here, or can they all be held long term? Are some of these yields too good to be true, like CLM and PDBC? Thanks for your thoughts.

Q: Good morning,

I'm considering adding a small position of BXMT in my Non Reg US portfolio to generate some additional US $ income. With a 7% yield, how safe is this distribution and would you recommend any other name in its place to achieve my objective? Also, your thoughts on TF in my RSSP account would be appreciated. Thank you
Franco
