Last night I watched one of Stansberry’s cohorts, Dr. David Eifrig, recommend MIC in his Income Intelligence letter. MIC is one of Mr. Owen’s recommendations. BTW, Doc Eifrig also recommended BX.

You don’t take anyone’s advice blindly, why would you do it here? I find that Brett “narrows the field” for me. I’ll then use CEF Connect to do some diligence (UII, leverage, etc.), my broker to get up to the minute info, then pass or play. True, I’ve done a lot of passing but, after a year, I’m happy with the results. Of course timing has a huge impact. The key is, as many fellow subscribers have said, that this vehicle is primarily for income generation and, much less so, if at all, for appreciation alone.

I’ve been a subscriber for about 2-years now, and fully support Brett’s approach and analysis, but you have to understand the goal is dividend INCOME and dividend growth, versus just share price growth. He recommends investments selling at a discount to NAV, so there is some implied share price growth potential on top of the dividend income stream. I have grown to really appreciate his “Contrarian” mindset, and to listen to him when he recommends selling a particular investment.

If you’re looking for the next 10X bagger, this isn’t the newsletter for you, but if you are looking to build a portfolio of income investments, then I recommend it. Doesn’t mean you can stop paying attention or doing your own homework, but I have found the approach to be very effective.

I’m an old retired guy, who invest for income. Most of my picks have come from gleaning information posted by others on line. I’ve always used my $4.95 a month subscription to Weiss Ratings as a final filter. If a position doesn’t rate a B- or higher, I pass on it. Thus far that has always worked well for me. Many of Brett’s picks or C- or lower. I mark the ones that interest me on my Weiss watch list, and if they I eventually get an upgrade alert they’ve made it to B- I’ll consider a position. Not rocket science, but it’s been good so far!

Mickymike is right – I too only see a 29.95 per month price, which I find a little steep..

it’s not $4.95 a month. it’s $495 for the first two years. gordon probably forgot how much he paid. there is a $999 lifetime subscription. if you spread that out over 17 years, it works out to about $4.95 a month.
