5 Secure Dividends
(That Pay You Every Single Month)
- These 5 cash-rich funds could drop a cool $3,292 into your portfolio—every month.
- They’re just the start: I’m going to show you a whole world of rich 7%+ monthly dividends most people don’t even know about.
- PLUS you get your big monthly dividends with minimal price volatility (giving you peace of mind as your payouts roll in, right in line with your bills).
Dear Contrarian Income Report member,
I’m Kevin Wallen, publisher of Contrarian Income Report.
You and I both know how rough the last two years have been.
In March 2020, we all thought we were headed for Great Depression II! Then the Fed sent stocks on a sugar high with unprecedented amounts of printed cash.
And now we’re in a tough situation again, with inflation and war grinding stocks down.
Through it all, CIR chief strategist Brett Owens’s contrarian income strategy has protected, and grown, our income streams (and nest eggs, too).
Consider Brett’s master contrarian call to buy Comerica (CMA) in January 2021, when he correctly predicted that Fed Chair Jay Powell’s wave of printed money would boost inflation, sending the yield on the 10-year Treasury note soaring past 2%.
That, in turn, would ignite bank profits, as the rates on which they lend to consumers are directly tied to bond yields.
We grabbed ourselves a nice 5% dividend from Comerica, but the real draw was the bank’s fast-rising dividend (up 224% in the previous 5 years) and share buybacks, both of which drew in a wave of new investors.
Fast-forward a little more than a year, and we’re sitting on a 73% return!
Timely Comerica Buy Pays Off Big
I hope you’ve been with us for that one. But if not, don’t worry. Because I’m going to give you an opportunity to grab another round of big gains and dividends—but unlike with Comerica, these payouts will come your way monthly.
It’s a chance to build on the “all-weather” dividends you get from CIR with 5 unique funds that pay you a gaudy 7.9% average monthly dividend.
PLUS these 5 funds (closed-end funds, or CEFs, to be specific) trade at such low valuations they’re in position to soar at least 20% … in as little as 12 months.
That fast upside stems from the fact that these are smaller CEFs, an overlooked corner of the market that tends to jump quickly as the mainstream crowd catches on.
And even if the market slips from here, we still win, because these 5 smaller funds’ discounts help cushion their prices, letting us enjoy their huge monthly dividends in peace!
More on these 7.9% monthly paying cash machines (and why they’re the perfect investments to hold in a crisis) in a moment.
First, let’s talk more about the power of monthly payouts, because as CIR members know, they’re something the mainstream crowd almost never gets to enjoy.
Monthly Dividends Are Built for Worrying Times
I know you love monthly dividend payers—CIR members write us all the time to say so.
It’s easy to see why.
For starters, a monthly payout is a sign of a confident management team: they wouldn’t send you a payout every month if they weren’t sure they could do so.
That’s the kind of swagger we demand in trying times like these.
And second, it’s just a lot easier to manage your cash flow—and make sure you don’t come up short in any given month—when you know exactly what you’re getting every 30 (or 31) days.
You just wait for your regularly scheduled monthly dividend to drop into your account, then you transfer the money over to your monthly bills. It’s simple.
But as you and I both know, solid monthly payers are thin on the ground for folks who limit themselves to the darlings of the S&P 500. That forces them to try to cobble together a smooth income stream out of quarterly payers. Good luck with that!
Monthly Payouts Shift Your Income Stream From This …
What you’re looking at above is a $500K portfolio split up among Procter & Gamble (PG), Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Bank of America (BAC), Kimberly Clark (KMB) and 3M Corp. (MMM).
These 5 companies are staples in just about every income investor’s portfolio …
… but their income stream is a mess! Your dividends range from just $608 all the way up to $2,207. Worst of all, you’re still only getting a 3% dividend yield on your $500K.
That’s $15,220 a year on $500K. Poverty-level wages!
Of course, we CIR members know we don’t have to live like this. Our CIR portfolio already boasts a number of monthly payers, and I’ll add to those with the 5 low-key CEFs I’ll show you below. If our theoretical S&P 500 investor above invested in these 5 funds instead, they’d get a smooth-as-silk income stream that looks like this:
… To This:
That’s more like it!
We’ve now transformed our “lumpy” income stream to a like-clockwork $3,292 in monthly income. That’s $39,500 a year, or a retirement-changing 7.9% dividend yield.
Plus, the 5 picks I’m going to show you in a moment come with a twist: they’re smaller CEFs trading at huge discounts. So when the crowd discovers them, they’re nicely set up to soar.
That’s where our call of 20%+ price gains in the next 12 months comes in. And that’s on top of the 7.9% dividend yield these funds throw off!
In other words, we’ve got potential for a solid 27.9% in gains and dividends by this time next year.
We’ve Ridden Our “Monthlies” to Big Gains (and Income!)
There’s another reason why we CIR members love monthly payers: we know they outperform.
Take the Gabelli Dividend & Income Trust (GDV), run by famed value investor Mario Gabelli.
When we bought GDV in October 2020, it was throwing off a monthly dividend that added up to a sweet 7.3% annualized yield.
It was also cheap, trading at a 16% discount to net asset value (NAV): that’s CEF-speak for saying you could buy its holdings—elite US companies like Mastercard (MA), Honeywell (HON) and Microsoft (MSFT)—for just 84 cents on the dollar.
So we jumped in and started collecting GDV’s rich 7.3% payout, which drip, drip, dripped into our accounts every month (in addition to a nice “bonus” special dividend GDV gave us in January 2022):
GDV’s “Steady as She Goes” Monthly Payout
By the time we clocked out in February 2022—a mere 16 months later—our man Mario had steered us to a fast 44% total return!
That wasn’t all, though: we’d drawn a fat $1.82 of monthly dividends for every single share we owned throughout our holding period.
On a $100K investment, that comes out to a total of $9,737 in dividend payouts, which built up in our accounts every month.
That not only bulked up our income stream; it drove our price gain, too, as income-starved investors piled in, pushing GDV’s performance well past the market.
Our Top Income Holding Has Already Paid Us Back 53.6% in Dividend Cash
Then there’s the Flaherty & Crumrine Dynamic Preferred & Income Fund (DFP), which has been rolling out monthly dividends for us since we picked it up in CIR in October 2015.
It yielded 7.5% back then and has delivered us a solid 83% return, a big jump for a fund that focuses on steady-as-she goes preferred shares.
Here’s the REAL takeaway, though.
In that time, we’ve collected $11.94 a share in monthly dividends. That’s more than half of the $22.26 a share we paid for DFP in the first place!
Those payouts are a big part of our gain.
And if you’d invested $100K in DFP when we bought, you’d be sitting on $53,634 in monthly dividends today—and counting.
I think you’ll agree that this is a pretty sweet combo of income and growth. It also shows the power of CEFs—particularly monthly paying CEFs—for delivering outsized income and big capital gains in just one investment.
5 Funds in Our “Dividend Sweet
Spot”: 7.9% Dividends and
20%+ Upside Ahead
Now let’s move on to the 5 funds I want to introduce you today, and talk about why they make the perfect companions to CIR picks like DFP.
These 5 funds have been handpicked by Michael Foster, our in-house specialist on smaller CEFs. Michael zeroes in on funds with market caps between $200 million and $1 billion.
What’s so special about CEFs that size?
They’re where the greatest bargains live, because these funds tend to be off the big institutional players’ radar. At the same time, funds in that range are large enough to provide us with the liquidity we need to move in and out of them with ease.
But because of their smaller size, Brett Owens can’t recommend them to his thousands of CIR subscribers. If he did, they’d move the price, and not everyone would be able to get in at an attractive discount.
That’s where Michael comes in. He leads a small, elite group of income seekers who deftly move in and out of these wonderful income-and-growth plays, which hand you outsized monthly dividends up to 8.5%.
Let’s dive in, starting with:
Monthly Dividend Pick No. 1: A Global
Titan With a 7.6% Dividend
Our first pick is an international CEF boasting a 7.6% dividend (paid monthly, of course), a generous 9% discount to net asset value (NAV, or the value of the stocks in its portfolio) and a management team that gives us global exposure without going near basket cases like Russia.
Our team are masters of spotting overlooked value, too. Consider the UK, which is still wobbling from Brexit. But our pick’s managers have leveraged that uncertainty to pick up some of the best (and most globally oriented) UK firms at big discounts!
I’m talking market dominators like Reckitt Benckiser Group (RBGLY) and Relx plc (RELX).
Reckitt is far from a household name in the US, but its products are: consumer mainstays like Strepsils, Air Wick, Clearasil and Lysol. Reckitt dominates its markets, so it can shrug off inflation and use its brand power to easily pass off price increases to its customers.
It’s the same story at Relx, producer of LexisNexis, a database that’s the standard in the legal profession.
These kinds of overlooked “inflation-proof” opportunities are exactly what we want our CEF managers to dig up! And Pick No. 1’s strong portfolio (and huge payouts) are available at an unusually big discount now.
A Monthly 7.6% Dividend … Going for 91 Cents on the Dollar!
Critically, this fund kept that huge dividend flowing through the toughest market we’ve seen in a generation—the COVID-19 crash—giving investors a much-needed lifeline. That makes it a fund we want anchoring our portfolio, with a 9% discount that won’t last long!
Monthly Dividend Pick No. 2: A
7.4%-Payer With an “Inside Edge”
Our next pick is a 7.4%-yielder with a sterling track record and the backing of one of the world’s largest management firms, with $10 trillion in assets and top talent begging to come work for them.
The proof is in the performance of its portfolio: pick No. 2’s net asset value, or NAV, has jumped 247%, including dividends the fund has collected, since its inception in October 2014!
The key to that gain is in its top-10 holdings: it holds stalwarts like Apple (AAPL) and Amazon.com (AMZN) and privately held companies that haven’t yet gone through an IPO.
These private holdings have been a big part of its success, and they’re something you and I would never be able to access on our own. But because of this fund manager’s deep connections, we get to invest like billionaires ourselves!
This fund does something else that’s supposed to be impossible for a high-yielder: it grows its payout—and by no small amount.
A 7.4% Monthly Dividend That Soared 150%
That dividend is nearly as impressive as our pick’s portfolio gains, and I expect it to keep growing at a similar clip well into the future.
A 7.4% dividend that’s grown triple digits in seven years and is paid monthly? Most folks will tell you that’s impossible. But that’s exactly what we get with this standout tech fund.
Monthly Dividend Pick No. 3: An 8.5% Payer That LOVES a Volatile Market
The 8.5% yield on Pick No. 3 is impressive enough on its own, but go deeper and the story gets even better. The fund’s 8.9% discount to NAV means its managers need to earn less—8.1%, to be exact—to sustain its payout. Even after the war in Ukraine began, they’ve easily topped that.
Portfolio Gains Keep Payouts Flowing in a Crisis
Let’s start with the portfolio, which focuses on companies known for their strong cash flow and dividends, like Johnson & Johnson (JNJ), Procter & Gamble (PG) and Cisco Systems (CSCO).
The fund then builds on these with a strategy that cuts its volatility while boosting its income stream: it sells call options on its portfolio.
Think of these options as a kind of insurance: whether or not the stocks are eventually sold, our pick gets to keep the cash it gets from the buyers of these contracts!
It then passes those funds, along with dividends and gains it earns from its portfolio of strong blue chips, to us, giving us a reliable income stream that can sustain us through a crash. And that’s why this pick is a prime choice for today’s markets.
Now you’re probably wondering how to get full details on these 5 reliable income plays …
We’ve put everything you need to know in an exclusive report, “5 ‘Must-Own’ Monthly Dividend Funds Yielding 7.9%.” I want to send it to you today for FREE.
These are just three of the funds you’ll read about in Michael’s new investor report, “5 ‘Must-Own’ Monthly Dividend Funds Yielding 7.9%.”
In addition to these 3 CEFs, you’ll discover a bond fund yielding 7.3% that soared the last time rates rose (and is poised to pull off a repeat).
You’ll also read about another fund that’s positioned in energy stocks, materials and telecoms. That’s a good mix of sectors for higher rates, as energy and materials tend to rise, while telecoms tone down our volatility. This deep-discounted cash machine yields a gaudy 8.2% today!
We’d normally sell this unique report, complete with its “mini-portfolio” of monthly payers yielding 7.9% on average, for $99 a copy. But it’s yours free today.
Also YOURS FREE: The “Bible” of CEF Investing (a $99 Value)
There’s more, too, because this in-depth report comes with a second volume called “The Ultimate Guide to CEFs.”

Here are some of the things you’ll learn in this second FREE report:
- How CEFs can pay outsized dividends—and a simple way to make sure your fund’s payout is sustainable.
- The simple trick CEF managers use to limit their funds’ downside (this unique “insurance” doesn’t exist in stocks, bonds or ETFs).
- The surprising reason why the liquidation of a CEF is actually good news for investors.

We’ve also bulked up the service with a set of unique wealth-building tools you won’t find anywhere else, starting with …
Your Secret Weapon for
BIG Profits in CEFs
These tools start with your CEF Screener, which lets you sort through the nearly 500 funds in the CEF universe worthy of your consideration at the click of a mouse.
Sort by ticker symbol, asset class or discount/premium to NAV and you’ll instantly see how each CEF stacks up to its peers.
This one-of-a-kind CEF-picking tool is backed by a rigorous 6-point assessment that judges each CEF by its current and historical NAV, 10-year return, fees, yield on NAV (the best measure of dividend safety) and more.
The Screener also gives you our one-of-a-kind “CEF Insider Heat Map,” which instantly separates attractive funds (green) from dangerous pretenders (red).
It’s like having Michael personally guide you to the CEFs worth further consideration for your portfolio.
We’d normally charge $99 a month for access to the Screener alone—but you get it absolutely FREE when you try CEF Insider.
PLUS you also get…
A Proven Tool for Sniffing Out
CEF Bargains … and Ripoffs, Too!
Yet another CEF-picking tool, our easy-to-use CEF Index Tracker, lets you instantly compare the performance of practically any CEF to any other CEF and stack up as many funds as you like to our proprietary CEF indexes.
At a glance, you can see which CEFs have outperformed (and may be overpriced) and which have underperformed (and may be screaming bargains).
There isn’t another CEF tracker anywhere on the web—paid or free—that lets you do this, which is why I recently added this revolutionary tool to your CEF Insider trial membership.
A $99-a-month value, you also get the Index Tracker FREE as part of your CEF Insider trial.

2 more FREE BONUS reports!
BONUS Special Report #1 (a $99 value):
Your first Bonus Special Report, “5 Hidden Income Plays the ETF Companies Don’t Want You to Know About,” gives you all the profitable details on 5 CEFs the big-name ETF providers are actively keeping from you. That’s because, if you discovered these 5 amazing funds’ income-producing power, you might never buy another ETF again!
The 5 CEFs you get in this report are the perfect companions to the 5 funds you get in your first free report. Here’s a quick sneak peek:
- This fund is a true dividend unicorn! It yields an amazing 10.1%, holds blue-chip pharma stocks you know well AND trades at a very rare 4.3% discount.
- A bond fund with an incredible track record. Managed by the biggest firm in the CEF world, it pays a massive 9.3% dividend and has done something no “stodgy” bond fund is supposed to: returned an incredible 319% in dividends and price gains.
- A century-old fund that’s survived—and thrived—in crisis after crisis. It yields 9.2% and trades at an absurd 14% discount.
- This CEF owns the best real estate for a post-COVID world, and it’s paying a massive 8.0% income stream. I’m also banking on strong upside (20%+) in the next 12 months from this one.
- A 9%-payer riding the hottest trend in tech. This unique CEF is cashing in on the surging growth of artificial intelligence, and it has a winning strategy to minimize its volatility, too. This one should trade at a huge premium, but we can buy it for just 91 cents on the dollar.
BONUS Special Report #2 (a $99 value):
Your second Bonus Special Report, “5 Toxic CEFs That Could Ruin Your Retirement,” protects your CEF profits—and income—by highlighting devious traps you need to steer well clear of, such as:
- Outrageously high fees hidden deep in the fine print (in the case of one fund I’ll name in this report, management has snagged an obscene 44% of the fund’s investment income for itself!).
- Way too much leverage. Another of these deadly funds uses borrowed cash to fill its portfolio with other CEFs that are propped up by borrowed cash themselves. That’s way too aggressive, and it leaves this fund particularly vulnerable when the next crisis hits.
- Dangerous dividends, like the 14% yields two of these funds pay. But because these CEFs trade at ridiculous premiums, they need to vastly out-earn their huge yields in the market, year in and year out, just to keep their dividends going. You and I both know that’s impossible.
Combined, the 4 reports you get with this no-obligation “road test” of CEF Insider are worth $396. But they’re yours to keep no matter what you decide.
I understand if you’re still on the fence, so I’m going to pull out all the stops and take away ALL the risk of trying CEF Insider out. I’ll do that with …

Plus you’re welcome to keep the FREE special reports as my thanks for trying the service.
Which brings me to my next point.
As I mentioned, because the funds CEF Insider focuses on are small, it’s critical that we also keep our group small and nimble.
Otherwise, we’d move the price as we swing into these income plays—making it harder for everyone to get in at a bargain. (This, by the way, is why Brett Owens can’t recommend these funds to his thousands of Contrarian Income Report subscribers—and why we launched CEF Insider.)
We’re only letting in 2,000 members to CEF Insider in total.
You read that right: just 2,000 people, and just over 1,700 have already snagged spots.
So once we hit that 2,000-person limit, we may be forced to close the doors. If you try to sign up after that, your name will go on a waiting list and you’ll only be able to get in when another member drops out.
I don’t want you to miss out, which is why I’m urging you to start your no-obligation road test right now … while this is in front of you.
To recap, you get a full Charter Membership, with 2 months of full access to our powerful CEF Screener (a $198 value) and Index Tracker (a $198 value). Plus you also get the CEF Watch List, the complete CEF Insider portfolio and ALL of our premium research.
AND you’ll also receive 4 FREE research reports (a $396 value), weekly email updates and alerts, and a full 60 days to decide if you like the service.
That’s a total of $792.00 worth of CEF-investing tools—yours completely RISK-FREE.
All you have to do is click the button below to get started.
In the coming months, many investors will still be on the sidelines, fearful that the war in Ukraine will spread, the virus will surge unexpectedly or the Fed will raise rates at a faster-than-expected pace.
Meantime, our CEF Insider members will be pocketing their huge CASH payouts and getting set to bank some nice upside as their holdings’ discounts disappear. Don’t be left out. Start your no-risk trial to CEF Insider now.
