Guggenheim Multi-Asset Income ETF

Dividend Yield: 5.1%
Expenses: 0.65%*

Traditional stocks aren’t the only places to find a great dividends. Esoteric asset classes like real estate investment trusts, master limited partnerships or preferred stocks throw off plenty of yield. Yet, they can be difficult to value and purchase for many retail investors. The Guggenheim Multi-Asset Income ETF (CVY) makes adding these asset classes easy.

CVY tracks the Zacks Multi-Asset Income Index. That index is made up of a variety of these asset classes and includes the aforementioned REITs, MLPs and preferred stocks. But also adds in international ADRs, royalty trusts, business development companies, closed-end funds and high-yielding common stocks.

Chile is a paradise in South America for free market lovers.
Chile even has a private pension system set to withstand the future and a healthy market economy.
Is that why its largest listed companies give investors an healthy 3.67 % dividend yield? (more…)

Convertible Bonds are great

Convertible Bonds are Bonds that take advantage of stock performance


1) Convertible Bonds seem great:

  • they guarantee returns like Bonds,
  • they also offer opportunity to take advantage of stock market growth
  • they should be quite safe, because at the end of their lifetime they can give the capital back if stockprice is below convert price

2) SPDR Barclays Capital Convertible Bond ETF (CWB) offers a nice yield:  it pays  monthly $0.072 which makes  yearly $0.864 representing 2.3% of its $37 current price.

3) Expenses for this ETF are 0.4%, which  is not too much, even though usually ETF charge less

4) CWB is defensive as compared to stocks. It tracks the S&P 500 but with less volatility and with much less downswing

5) last but not least, CWB is the only ETF for  convertible Bonds, so I don’t have much choice.

municipal bonds are bonds by localadministrations

municipal bonds are bonds by local administrations

US government bailed out automakers and banks. Will Obama let local administrations fail?

Since my opinion is that US government will bail out local administrations, I am buying a 7% yielding municipal bond ETF.

Market Vectors High-Yield Municipal Index ETF [HYD] is high risk, it buys bods that are even below investment grade. Here is some data:


here is the prospect:


Stocks tumble, Housing prices sink, Gold prices down. The only safe haven is German Treasury Bonds. Fortunately I bought some of those trough an ETF: EB.REXX Government Germany 2.5-5.5 IS ERGG 2.5-5.5 (RXP2EX.FRA) November 6, 2008

No investment is safest than German Treasury Bonds

No investment is safest than German Treasury Bonds

This ETF owns German treasury EURO Bonds with lifetime between 5.5 years and 2.5 years. It is an average  lifetime for treasury bonds.

Germany has a strong manifacturing economy. German state and its citizens have very low debt levels. In my opinion there in nothing in World as safe and risk free as German treasury bonds.

Its main holdigs are:

Germany (Federal Republic Of) 5% 2012-07-04      11.4%


What are “Discount” and “Premium” for Funds (ETFs and Closed End)? Why do I love Discount and hate Premium? October 30, 2007

Posted by deminvest in etf, investment, investment strategies.

@nav, I hope this answers your comment

All funds own assets. Those assets (stocks, bonds, cash…) have a value. Once you subtract the fund’s liabilities you get a very important number:
Net Asset Value (NAV). For a fund that only owns shares, the NAV is the sum of the values of all shares belonging to the fund.

Some Funds (ETF and Closed End) are freely traded on stock markets. Their prices go up or down like anything else on markets. Since the price of a freely traded fund is free to change, there can be a difference between the price of a fund and its NAV.

When the price of a fund is lower than its NAV, you can buy the fund with a Discount.

When the price of a fund is higher than its NAV, you can only buy with a Premium.

I love to buy at Discount because I spend less than that price of the shares inside the fund.

6 facts tell me to bet on Eastern Europe stocks (or ETFs…) April 16, 2007

Posted by deminvest in etf, European Stocks, funds, growth stock, investment, investment strategies, LYCE.FRA Eastern Europe-LX ETF, stocks.

Let’s look at a few facts:

1) Western European Economy is finally taking off.

2) Germany is the locomotive of European growth.

3) Euro currency is at very high level.

4) European Community is enlarging itself eastward.

5) Russia is the largest and richest of commodities country in the World.

6) Eastern Europe still has a very cheap workforce.

Map of Eastern Europe

Looking at those facts and at this map , I have decided to invest in Eastern Europe: Germany has borders with the Czech Republic and Poland and is only a few hours of truck away from other Eastern European countries.


Will Chinese Shanghai stock market’s 9% drop drag Wall Street and other great stock exchanges to heavy loss? Is it time to buy China stocks? February 27, 2007

Posted by deminvest in China stock, etf, growth stock, investment, stocks.

Will Chinese Shanghai stock market’s 9% drop drag Wall Street and other great stock exchanges to heavy loss? Is it time to buy China stocks?

In my opinion: “no!” to first question “yes but not for me!” to second question

for several reasons:

1) Shanghai is not the main Chinese stock market. Hong Kong is the big one and it only went down 1.8%.

2) Shanghai went down without any recognizable reason. Just a little panic of a market which doubled in a short time.
