Help you make wise personal finance decisions

Hello friends, welcome to the November 2015 Monthly Newsletter!  In this issue, we will discuss 3 places to find 10% plus yields.

In today's low interest rate environment, is it still possible to find reliable 10% or even better yields?  That's a fair question, the answer is yes, but you need to know where to look for them.
1. Risks are Everywhere
First, I have to point out - risk are everywhere, as I discussed in this blogpost.  For stocks, you have to look into fundamentals; for bonds, credit ratings could already give you a clue; for funds, you have to read into their fine prints.  But, there is still hope, as discussed in the following 3 areas. 

2. Mortgage REITS
I know Mortgage REITS are risky, but if you know how to look underneath the surface - you might find some treasures in this field that most investors shy away from.  A few good examples were given in this discussion of Mortgage REITs.  

3. Business Development Companies (BDCs)
BDCs are notorious for their unreliable high yields.  But if I could show you a few BDCs with 10% plus yields and below book-value prices, would you find them attractive?  If your answer is yes, find them here.

4. Oil Bonds
Oil bonds are not for the faint of heart!  But how about some S&P's BB+ rated Oil Bonds with north of 10% yield to maturity?  Note: bonds are not for ordinary investors, do your own due diligence first.

Thank you for your readership!  I hope this newsletter points you to some areas where you could further your research and find investment products with attractive yields and accept risks!

The Bottom Line
Personal Finance is a broad and complicated topic, and needs lot of knowledge and forward-looking planning.  I hope I can share my knowledge and use my skills to help you make wise PF decisions.
