    This $24 Stock Is Paying $2.40 for Every Share You Own

    While last week’s lower than expected inflation print was good to see, we’re still not out of the woods when it comes to inflation and Fed interest rate hikes.

    Today, with stocks taking a breather from last week’s rally, we want to make sure we don’t lose focus on the importance of having inflation-beating investments in our portfolios.

    Today I want to bring our focus back to Business Development Companies, also known as BDCs for short. Because BDCs are regulated investment companies (RICs), they must distribute over 90% of their profits to shareholders. In addition, that RIC status means they don’t pay corporate income tax on profits before distributing them.

    That makes BDCs a great way for individual investors to get paid healthy dividends as early investors.

    The pick I have for you today blasted past every projection in its last earnings report, is in the process of steady growth that shows no signs of slowing down, and is paying out an inflation-beating 10% dividend as of this writing.

    And best of all, you can grab it for around $24 a share right now.

    Tapering Inflation Rallied the Markets – Here’s What to Do Now

    Everybody loves a good rally, and this week gave us one, with the Dow blasting up almost 1200 points by the time markets closed on Thursday. The CPI print came in lower than expected, at 7.7%, so naturally we saw a rush of call option buying from market-maker dealers and retail traders, pushing markets skyward. Things could keep popping up higher if a wave of FOMO buying follows next week, or if we get a Santa Claus rally this holiday season.

    But the long-term outlook is much less certain. Whether the Fed begins to ease the pace of its rate hikes or not, they’ve made one thing clear – they’re not budging from their 2% inflation target. That means we’re still going to see higher interest rates for longer, and that creates significant resistance to moving out of the overall bear market we’ve seen all year.
