You can’t fight the Fed and you can’t fight a free spending congress. Never has it been truer than now.
One just as well forget that there will be a bad ending to this story–it hasn’t happened yet and may not end for years. On the other hand, global investors may decide in a week or a month that they need to be paid for the risk of buying government debt–and when this happens they won’t be settling for 1.70% on the 10 year.
In the mean time I have had (and likely you have as well) 2 great months in a row with a 1.1% gain for March. Even holding ample cash March was great. I know April will not turn out as well as my dividend income will be down quite a bit–the January, April, July and October dividend/interest cycle are my cash flow softspots.
I have done quite a bit of successful dividend capture moves during the last 2 months–and in a rising market almost always work well.
I have added my ‘watch list’–which is destined to grow in the near future, of some of the issues I watch and own for various dividend capture plays. I have put a permanent link on the top of the page. It is here.
