Want To Create A Second Income?

Louisville, KY, October 28 2011 – Get Rich Investments, an online leader in helping individuals to create income producing investments, has a newsletter to guide investors seeking a second income.  This is one of the most valuable tools for investors to learn how to create monthly income from stocks and option strategies.

Does the idea of using an income investing strategy to create a second income every month on your funds appeal to you?  Get Rich Investments has created the Get Rich Monthly Income Plan to teach individuals how to create multiple streams of investing income.  This is a low-cost newsletter providing the following services:

    1. A list of CEFs (closed-end funds) that pay monthly dividends month after month. These investments can pay more than 10% annually and can sometimes be purchased at a discount to net asset value.
    2. A list of covered call trades consisting of high quality stocks such as the S&P 5-star research rating of the best stocks that are recommended as strong buys. These lists are updated each week with select trades added daily.
    3. Low risk investments to minimize market risk and to prevent your portfolio from taking a big lost in such uncertain market environments like we are experiencing today.
    4. We have created a strategy called the Blanket Put that will protect your investment from market downturns. The Blanket Put is your safety blanket to protect your portfolio from market downturns. This is worth the membership fee by itself.
    5. Access to multiple education resources to better learn how to be a more successful investor. Trades don’t end when you make a stock buy, sell a call, or complete the trade. Here we want members to be educated about how to manage a trade and when to take action.

The Get Rich Monthly Income Plan diversifies risk by seeking multiple streams of income. You can create monthly income by: covered call trades, covered LEAPS, calendar spread trades, monthly dividend CEFs and dividends from owning high quality, conservative stocks. That is 5 streams of income from this simple list as we focus on “cash flow” to the investor to improve your quality of life.

We have more than 20 years experience in the markets including trading covered calls and monthly income investments.  In addition, we have Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from a top business school and other experience in corporate finance and strategy.  We have authored several books including the original Get Rich – Stay Rich: Investing for Monthly Income that is currently on sale at Amazon and other bookstores around the world. It is important to you that your monthly income is in qualified, experienced investor hands who can be trusted to deliver the best trades.

Monthly Dividend Stocks Beating the S&P 500

Comparison of monthly dividend stocks and ETFs to the S&P 500

Click to enlarge

While dividend income is the hot item these days as the yield on fixed income investments is lower than income investors are seeking.  However, you do not want to give up some total return just to lock in a dividend.  The yield on the S&P 500 is only 2% and the price return has been 1% over the last year.  This creates a total return of 3% on the S&P 500. You should use this as the baseline for your income investments.  You can easily find monthly dividend stocks and ETFs that can beat the S&P 500 to make you even more money than just the monthly dividend.

Here are three monthly dividend stocks that have beaten the S&P 500 over the past year: (1) CRT, (2) MAIN and (3) UTG. The chart above shows the stock price returns compared to the S&P 500 over the past year.

Cross Timber Royalty Trust (CRT) is currently trading at $46.50. It has a 1-year price return of 24.05% compared to 1% for the S&P 500. CRT has a current dividend yield of 6.43% paid as a monthly dividend. CRT has a total return (1-year price return and dividend yield) of 30.48%. This is 8 times more profitable than the S&P 500. This is clear evidence that monthly dividend stocks can provide significant income investment returns beating the S&P 500.

CRT Company Profile: Cross Timbers Royalty Trust (Trust) is an express trust. The Trust is a widely held fixed investment trust (WHFIT). The Company entered into Cross Timbers Royalty Trust Indenture between predecessors of XTO Energy Inc. (XTO Energy), as grantors, and NCNB Texas National Bank, as trustee. As of December 31, 2010, Bank of America, N.A. is the trustee of the trust. Approximately 20 of the underlying royalty interests in the San Juan Basin burden working interests in properties operated by XTO Energy. XTO Energy also operates the Penwell Unit, which is the properties underlying the Texas 75% net profits interests and ExxonMobil operates the Hewitt Unit, which is the properties underlying the Oklahoma 75% net profits interests. Other than these properties, XTO Energy and ExxonMobil do not operate or control any of the underlying properties or related working interests.

Main Street Capital (MAIN) is currently trading at $17.50. MAIN has a 1-year price return of 13.77% compared to 1% for the S&P 500. MAIN has a current dividend yield of 8.64% paid as a monthly dividend. MAIN has a total return (1-year price return and dividend yield) of 22.41%. This is 7.5 times more profitable than the S&P 500. Again, this is another monthly dividend stock significantly beating the S&P 500.

MAIN Company Profile: Main Street Capital Corporation (MSCC) is a principal investment firm focused on providing customized financing solutions to lower middle-market companies with annual revenues between $10 million and $100 million. The Company was formed for the purpose of acquiring 100% of the equity interests of Main Street Mezzanine Fund, LP (MSMF) and its general partner, Main Street Mezzanine Management, LLC (MSMF GP); acquiring 100% of the equity interests of Main Street Capital Partners, LLC (the Investment Manager); raising capital in an initial public offering (IPO), which was completed in October 2007, and thereafter operating as an internally managed business development company (BDC). MSMF is licensed as a Small Business Investment Company (SBIC) by the United States Small Business Administration (SBA) and the Investment Manager acts as MSMF’s manager and investment adviser. The Company invests primarily in secured debt instruments, equity investments, warrants and other securities.

Reaves Utility Income Fund (UTG) is currently trading at $25.08. UTG has a 1-year price return of 14.09% compared to 1% for the S&P 500. UTG has a current dividend yield of 6.0% paid as a monthly dividend. UTG has a total return (1-year price return and dividend yield) of 20.09%. This is 6.7 times more profitable than the S&P 500. Again, this is another monthly dividend stock significantly beating the S&P 500.

UTG Company Profile: Reaves Utility Income Fund (the Fund) is a non-diversified closed-end investment Company. The Find’s investment objective is to provide a high level of after-tax income and total return consisting primarily of tax-advantaged dividend income and capital appreciation. The Fund may invest a portion of its assets in foreign securities. In the event that the Fund executes a foreign security transaction, the Fund will enter into a forward foreign currency contract to settle the foreign security transaction. It focuses to invest at least 80% of its total assets in dividend-paying common and preferred stocks and debt instruments of companies within the utility industry. The remaining 20% of its assets may be invested in other securities, including stocks, money market instruments and debt instruments, as well as certain derivative instruments in the utility industry or other industries.

Market Update – More CEFs with High Yields

I repeat the advice I gave you last week: we stay the course and move as soon as trading stabilizes.  This is a seriously oversold market.  Since there are no further shoes to drop after the  downgrade, we will begin to see some amazing buying opportunities emerge later  this week, along with options plays providing risk protection.  Once again, the market reaction to the turmoil has depressed  forward estimates of market demand. That, in turn, has further driven down  stock share values.

This is not to say that the market will not go lower.  However, you should create a watch list of securities you want to buy when the dust settles.  This will create an opportunity to pick up monthly dividend payers at a lower share price and higher yield.  Of course, you should dollar-cost average your buys so you don’t get burned by market volatility.

The one advantage to higher volatility is more option premium.  If you are looking at covered calls, you can sell in-the-money calls for more protection unless you want to keep the stock in your portfolio.  If your portfolio stocks have pulled back then you can reset your strike prices to continue to collect monthly income from option premiums.

Here is an updated list of CEFs that pay monthly income:

Buy The Pullback – CEFs with 10% Yields

Recently, it has been more difficult to find high yield closed-end funds because the search for yield has increased the share prices.  Now is probably a good time to consider slowly picking up high yield CEFs that have pulled back with the market.  I reccomend you slowly add positions over time due to the negative market perception.  This perception is overblown due to politics and uncertainity of increasing interest rates. 

The VIX is the stock market’s fear gauge.  A falling VIX indicates investor complacency.  A rising VIX shows fear.    The spike in the VIX indicates that the market is due for a bounce.  Recently, the VIX closed above its upper Bollinger Band – indicating an extreme move in investor fear.  Of course, we all know the best time to buy stocks is when investors are scared – when they’re so frightened of potential losses, they’re willing to dump positions at “fire sale” prices.

I think this is a good time to enter or increase positions in monthly income stocks.  You may want to dollar-cost average into these positions over time.  Here is a list of CEFs with 10% or higher yield.
