After forty years of investing, a few things become clear: you need to focus on quality securities, diversify properly, and develop a lifetime supply of income. The investment puzzle becomes easier to solve if you have a handle on all the pieces.

Income portfolio management is a puzzle in its own right, and the major problem is focus --- income is king.

Here's a series of articles that will help you become Retirement Income Ready. 

Income Investing Made Easy - Parts One & Two - In time, you'll learn to beam with pride as your diversified, high-quality income earners moves lower in price with higher interest rates. Finally, it's time to increase yield and reduce cost basis --- at the same time! 

Managed Closed End Funds --- Solid Income Investments in Liquid Form It should become abundantly clear that this form of investment has eliminated nearly all of the drawbacks of conventional mutual funds. The two have very little in common.

Income Investing: Selecting the Right Stuff - Parts One & Two - When is 3 percent better than 6 percent?  Yeah, you know the answer, but only until securities' prices fall. Then, logic and mathematical acumen disappear and we become susceptible to all kinds of special cures for the periodic onset of higher interest rates.

Income Investing: Go Ask Alice - Don't let uniformed thinking sabotage your retirement program; don't let the selfish advice of product sellers send you chasing rabbits when IRE (interest rate expectations) or other market conditions shrink the market value of your income portfolio.

Understanding Income Investing - Forming Valid Expectations - Parts One & Two - I've come to the conclusion that the stock market is an easier medium for investors to understand than the fixed income market. When dealing with income securities, neither investors nor advisors are comfortable with downward movements.

Real Estate Investing: No Lawyers, No Debt, No Plungers - Without having millions to work with, or a line of credit that goes around the block, you can have positions in various forms of Real Estate at the same time.

Retirement Income Investment Planning - Step One - Your 401(k) Plan is not a retirement plan --- even if your employee benefits department, the media, and Wall Street insist that they are. Most are difficult to self-manage for retirement income, but they sure can take you close to where you want to be.

Income Investing: News, Mis-Information, and Opportunities - Re-examining the price and yield opportunities of the past bring about this understanding: investors can benefit from all stages of the interest rate cycle. Lower/higher prices and higher/lower yields are good news for income investors!

Compound Stock Earnings Programs - Caveat Investor - Options are bets about the future price movement of exchange-traded securities--- it's just that simple. The prospect of unusually high returns always signals unusually high risk. Here are some things to consider before you think about attending that free seminar:

The Total Return Shell Game - Just what is this "total return" thing that income investment managers like to talk about, and that Wall Street uses as the performance hoop that all investment managers have to jump through? Why is it mostly just smoke and mirrors?
