Dividends Paying Up
REVEALED: A blockbuster portfolio that gives you steady gains—and HUGE cash payouts—in any market
Stop me if this has happened to you:
You buy a stock with a “generous” 4% dividend, and you’re happily collecting your quarterly payout. (By the way, that 4% is truly pathetic compared to the 5 cash-rich income plays I’ll show you shortly!)
Then the bottom drops out:
29 Years of Dividends Go POOF!
That’s what happened to the poor folks who bought L Brands (LB), owner of the well-known Victoria’s Secret lingerie chain, in early 2017.
Fast-forward to the fall of 2019, and they’d paid a frightful price—a massive 64% hit!—for the company’s so-called “safe” 4% dividend.
So much for safety!
Put another way, that amounts to 29 years’ worth of dividends, based on L Brands’’ current quarterly payout.
A total disaster! Especially for anyone in, or nearing, retirement.
Other so-called “safe” household names have crushed everyday investors’ nest eggs (and income streams) even faster.
Like Macy’s (M), which flopped 48% in just the first 11 months of 2019:
Macy’s “Wile E. Coyote” Stock
That flameout cost regular folks trying to scrape together enough cash for a decent retirement over 9 years’ worth of the retailer’s dividend payouts!
Introducing the “Pullback-Proof”
Dividend disasters like these are why I put together my 5-stock “Pullback-Proof” portfolio, which I’m going to GIVE you today.
These 5 income wonders deliver 2 things blue-chip pretenders like L Brands and Nordstrom never could:
- Rock-solid (and growing) 8% average cash dividends.
- Share prices that don’t crumble beneath your feet while you’re collecting these massive payouts. In fact, you can bank on 7% to 15% yearly price upside from these 5“steady Eddie” picks.
These days, when the Dow can easily plummet a stomach-churning 600 points (or more) in a single trading session, I’m sure a safe—and growing—8% in cash every single year has a lot of appeal.
And remember, 8% is just the average! One of these titans pays a steady 9.8%.
Think about that for a second: buy this incredible stock now and every single year, nearly 10% of your original buy boomerangs back to you in CASH. Fast-forward a decade and you’d have piled up enough dividends to match your entire upfront investment.
Everything else is gravy!
If that’s not the very definition of safety, I don’t know what is.
These 5 stout stocks have sailed through meltdown after meltdown, doling out huge cash dividends the entire time.
I’ll reveal 5 “pullback-proof” dividends in a moment. First, let’s talk about why I’m showing them to you today …
Winter Is Coming
Here’s the truth: a recession is lurking around the corner.
How do I know?
Because a critical indicator you never hear about in the mainstream press is blaring red.
That would be the Duke University/CFO Global Business Outlook. Its “CFO Optimism Index” surveys the real “canaries in the coal mine”—corporate chief financial officers. It’s accurately predicted economic growth in the past, and the latest results are very worrying.
According to the latest survey, 67% of American CFOs see a recession headed our way in 2020. Overall optimism is scraping bottom: at its lowest level in 3 years.
That’s already showing up in real money: companies have thrown the brakes on capital spending, with the amount of cash flowing into new projects recently falling for the first time in 4 years.
To anyone not in a complete state of denial, these are crystal clear early warning signs.
Too bad mainstream investors are whistling past the graveyard, bidding stocks to levels far above where they should be at a time like this.
With stocks dancing on eggshells, all it would take is one negative headline (a botched trade negotiation with China, for example) or slip of the tongue from Jay Powell to send them over the edge.
Heads You Win, Tails You Win
Let’s stop right here for a moment, because I have to tell you something before we go one sentence further.
These troubling signs do not mean I recommend going to cash now.
With your mattress heavy, you’re doomed to sit there grinding your teeth when the markets turn higher, wondering when to get back in … if you should get back in … and if the next pullback could come along and wipe you out the moment you do.
You’ve likely experienced that feeling before. I know I don’t have to tell you that it’s a one-way ticket to madness.
It’s also why most perma-bears lose money—because they stay out of the market too long!
We need to keep our income and our nest egg growing. Which is where my 5 “pullback-proof” plays come in. Thanks to their bargain valuations, massive (and growing) dividends (up to 9.8%!) and records of surfing through previous meltdowns, they’re perfect additions to your portfolio now.
Here’s the best part: even if I’m wrong about a looming recession and the market skyrockets from here, these ridiculously undervalued “pullback-proof” plays are poised to soar even higher.
Think about that for a moment: you’re getting built-in upside, downside “insurance” and an 8% average dividend here. That payout is more than the market returns on an annualized basis over the long term—and you’re getting it paid upfront, in CASH!
These 5 stocks are, hands down, the closest thing I’ve seen to “can’t-lose” plays in my entire investing career. And if you want to get in on the action, you need to act right now.
Why do I say that?
Because with interest rates headed down, income-starved investors have been bidding these high-yielders’ prices higher—chipping away at the downside protection we need.
There’s not much time left!
I’ll give you the full scoop on these 5 “pullback-proof” plays in a few seconds more. First, I want to show you how you can protect and grow your nest egg with my best contrarian “action plan” for when a meltdown eventually does hit.
Let’s start with …
The 1 Thing You Must NOT Do in a
Market Grease Fire
“Buy when there’s blood in the streets,” they say.
“Be greedy when others are fearful,” they say.
These are great slogans—we’ve had them drilled into our heads as investors.
But let’s cut to the chase: when stocks go up in smoke and you’re watching your nest egg collapse 2%, 4% or more in a single day, you need superhuman strength to click the “buy” button—and potentially set yourself up for even worse losses!
That’s because doing so flies in the face of our No. 1 instinct: self-preservation.
But here’s the rub: it isn’t buying in a selloff that will crush your nest egg. It’s selling.
Imagine for a second if you’d sold on any of the scares we’ve seen in the last 10 years (maybe you don’t even have to imagine).
It’s worth revisiting this rogue’s gallery when markets turn ugly, to remind ourselves that things have been as bad (and far worse) many times before:
- The 2008–09 financial crisis
- The 2010 Greek debt crisis
- The 2010 flash crash
- The Chinese stock-market crash of early 2016
- The correction of February 2018
- The pullback of late 2018
But if you’d pulled the ripcord on these occasions, you would have missed some (or all) of this monstrous gain (not to mention dividend payouts):
A Once-in-a-Lifetime Shot at Getting Rich—Lost
And if you’d bought at the absolute trough of these meltdowns, you’d be sitting on some very nice gains today.
Heck, even folks who bought when the market tanked as recently as Christmas Eve 2018 found themselves with a HUGE return just 11 months later.
Smart Contrarians Bag a Fast 37% GAIN
Look, I won’t tell you that pulling the trigger in a market storm is easy. And I won’t lie to you and say that doing so will nail down a fast gain like this every time.
(In fact, if you run across anyone who says they know for certain which way the market will go in the future, I suggest you run the other way fast.)
So today we’re going to do the next best thing. We’re going to invest in the 5 low-risk buys I mentioned earlier.
These 5 “pullback-proof” wonders give you the best of both worlds: an 8% CASH dividend that grows year in and year out, with your feet firmly planted on a share price that holds steady in a market inferno and floats higher when stocks go Zen.
Your Retirement Income Worries—Solved
You’re probably wondering where we’ll find these stable, high-paying “unicorns.”
The truth is, there are 2 stock-market vehicles hiding in plain sight that pay reliable yields of 6%, 7% and even 8% or higher.
I’m talking about investments with market caps between $1 billion and $3 billion. They’re plenty liquid enough for you and me, but not for the big institutional investors who hold two-thirds of all shares in public stocks.
Combined, they make up only a fraction of the stock market’s total capitalization, so they don’t get much coverage from the financial media.
And that makes these ignored corners of the market perfect for us to find high, safe, “pullback-proof” payouts.
I’ll give you the specifics on stock names and tickers to buy in a couple seconds more. But first, a bit about myself—and why you should trust me when I say the dividend payers I recommend really are pullback-proof.
My name is Brett Owens and I’m the chief investment strategist for Contrarian Income Report—a publication that uncovers secure, high-yielding investments for thousands of investors.
Right now, our portfolio throws off an outsized 7.3% average dividend—and many of my picks deliver even bigger cash streams, like 8.2%, 9.1% and even 9.8%.
Plus, my subscribers have grabbed an 11.8% average yearly return since launch in 2015—so our stock prices have consistently ticked higher, through boom and bust, while my readers cashed those ballooning dividend checks.
With returns like that, you could retire on dividends alone on just $500K!
Now let’s get back to the 2 ignored corners of the market I want to introduce you to for massive “pullback-proof” dividends…
“Pullback-Proof” Play #1: Closed-End Funds
Instead of settling for classic 3% or 4% payers, you can double your payouts (or better) right now by moving to closed-end funds, or CEFs.
In fact, you can often make the switch without actually switching investments.
For example, JPMorgan Chase (JPM) investors can potentially trade their 3% yields for the Gabelli Dividend & Income Fund’s (GDV) 6.2% payout. JPM is one of GDV’s largest holdings among a list of blue chip dividend payers, plus dividend growers like Honeywell International (HON) and American Express (AXP).
Superstar money manager Mario Gabelli runs his namesake GDV. He combines his holdings’ dividends with growth and a dash of leverage to create his outsized yield—which he delivers investors every single month, to boot.
Sounds like a sweet deal, right? His investors get the benefit of a legendary money mind, along with his access to ideas and cheap money.
There are funds that deliver even more “alpha” than GDV—which means they pay more and offer more potential upside. I’ll highlight two of my favorite plays in a moment.
These two “slam dunk” income buys pay dividends as high as 7.7%.
And here’s where their “pullback-proof” safety valve comes in—because each one trades at an unusually steep discount to their net asset value (NAV) today.
Which means they’re perfect for your retirement portfolio because your downside risk is minimal. Even if the market takes a tumble, these two top-notch funds are poised to simply trade flat … and we’ll enjoy those yields up to 7.7%.
But they’ll most likely jump 10% or more to close the discount … and we’ll still collect those fat dividends!
I’ll give you instant access to my two favorite CEFs in a minute—but let’s get into our next strategy.
“Pullback-Proof” Play #2: Battle-Proven REITs
How about 3 real estate investment trusts (REITs) yielding up to 9.8% that have a proven record of crushing the markets in good times and bad?
The IRS lets REITs avoid paying income taxes if they pay out 90% of their earnings to shareholders. As a result, these firms collect rent checks, pay their bills and send the rest to us as dividends.
The result is higher payouts than the broader market. The benchmark Vanguard Real Estate ETF (VNQ) pays 3.9% today, double the S&P 500.
Too bad most folks blindly pile into VNQ (or the blue chip REITs the ETF holds). Reason being, most of these “first-level” investors and money managers don’t know the individual names that well.
As a result, they’re missing the true hidden dividend gems in the space. Soon enough they’ll smarten up and start throwing their billions into the real values, like my favorite REIT, the 9.8%-yielder I just mentioned.
It’s a savvy lender that holds residential and commercial mortgages and hedges its risk by devoting a large percentage of its portfolio to securities issued by Ginnie Mae, Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac.
That puts Uncle Sam on the hook for any defaults, not my pick.
And here’s the ultimate “pullback-proof” test: in 2018, a year most investors would rather forget, this steadfast REIT actually made money!
My REIT Pick Shows Its Pullback-Proof Chops
The time to buy is now, as this off-the-radar play makes investments that will drive its payout and share price higher.
Same for another REIT favorite of mine, one of those “unicorns” you hear people talk about but rarely see yourself: an 8% payer with a dividend that’s growing like a weed! (With 3 “bonus” cash payouts tossed in for good measure.)
A Surging Payout—and a Yearly Cash “Bonus”
And just like my previous REIT pick, this “pullback-proof” superstar passed our 2018 test with flying colors:
A “Pullback-Proof” Play in Action
This commercial lender boasts some of the sharpest minds in the business, and you can bet they’ll be working with us, because insiders have been plowing their own cash into the business, with a combined stake that’s quadrupled in size in just the last 5 years.
Any serious dividend investor should own this stock, for 3 simple reasons:
- It’s a screaming bargain now—but that won’t last, so you’ll want to act now if you don’t want to miss out.
- It survives (and thrives) when market storms hit.
- It yields a fat 8% dividend that’s surging (and regularly giving us extra “surprise” cash hits).
- Its payout is easily covered by cash flow.
Now let’s discuss how you’ll get exclusive “members-only access to my complete “Pullback-Proof Portfolio” today, including stock names, tickers and buy prices.
Cash Payouts Up to 9.8%, With Upside
It’s only a matter of time before other investors ditch their paltry 3% and 4% payers and find their way over to these “slam dunk” income plays, so the time to buy is now, while they still trade at deep discounts to NAV and cash flow.
That’s why I’ve prepared a brand new in-depth Special Report giving you full details on all 5 stout buys in my new “Pullback-Proof” portfolio …
Yours FREE: “5 ‘Pullback-Proof’ Dividends Paying Up to 9.8%”
Inside you’ll find the ticker symbol, my buy-up-to price and in-depth backstory on each of these 5 recession-proof buys.
It all starts with the 2 REITs I just showed you, throwing off rock-solid (and growing) dividends up to 9.8%.
PLUS you also get …
- The closed-end fund trading at a bizarre 9% discount that throws a cement floor under the share price while we pocket its outsized 6.6% dividend!
- It pays 7.9% and is generating so much cash that management has hiked the dividend an amazing 131% in just the last five years! No wonder this one delivered a big total return in 2018, while the rest of the market floundered, and it’s still crushing stocks today.
- Another “recession-resistant” CEF paying a steady 7.7%. This one is totally misunderstood by investors, who think it’s tied to the unsteady Chinese economy simply because it has “Asia” in its name. (It isn’t.) That’s opened up an opportunity for us to jump in at a ridiculous (and temporary) 12% discount!
I’d normally sell this new report for $99, but you’ll pay $0 if you act today.
That’s right: you can grab all 5 of these dividend “triple plays”—which have outperformed in strong markets, held their own in meltdowns and pay you a gaudy 8% in cash either way—FREE right now.
And these 5 are just the start. Because this exclusive Special Report comes your way when you take my Contrarian Income Report service (and its portfolio of nearly 20 high-yield income plays) for a no-risk “test drive.”
Every new investment I recommend pays 6% or better, including four stocks in the service’s portfolio that each deliver over 8% income now. And as I said earlier, our entire portfolio sports an average yield of 7.3%.
Meanwhile, the S&P 500 pays a meager 1.8% on average, and the 10-year Treasury bond just 1.7%. So just by purchasing the “average” stock in our portfolio, most investors could triple their income overnight.
And the whole wealth-building package (including the names of every single 6%+ yieldier in its portfolio) is just waiting for you to try it out—with no risk and no obligation whatsoever.
When you do, you’ll join thousands of other investors who’ve tapped my cash-rich picks for life-changing income and market-crushing gains.
B.E. from Alaska, who said:
“Instead of paying [my advisor] $16,000 a year to invest my money, I am receiving $86,000 per year in dividends in my IRA, and $24,000 tax free dividends in our taxable account. I very much appreciate all the work that you guys do.”
Craig R. from Pennsylvania told us:
“Just wanted to write and let you know I’m very pleased with my subscription to your services… Keep up the good work! I sleep better at night not worrying about the daily gyrations of the market. I’m very glad I found your service.”
Tom I. from Florida told us:
“I’m very happy with your service. It solved my retirement income dilemma which is an incredible relief. Thank You!”
But that’s not all, because…
Safe Yields Are Just the Start

Now, the regular member price to join Contrarian Income Report is $99 per year.
With everything that’s included I’m sure you’ll agree it’s well worth the cost. Heck, the Special Report you’ll get absolutely FREE is worth that on its own.
And even a small position in any of the picks mentioned above will easily cover that in just the first few months.
Imagine 7%, 8%, even 9% dividends rolling in from these picks, then watching their share prices take off as mainstream investors realize what they’re missing and pile in.
But it’s important that I earn your trust and you have the chance to see exactly how profitable this service can be, so I’ve arranged for a small number of investors to take 60% off the regular price and try out Contrarian Income Report for just $39.

Special Report #2: “Monthly Dividend Superstars: 8% Yields With 10% Upside”
Inside you’ll find the ticker, my buy-up-to price and the in-depth backstory on 3 CEFs that pay you every single month!
These monthly dividend machines include:
- An 8.1% payer that’s set to rake in big profits in an artificially depressed sector.
- The brainchild of one of the top fund managers on the planet that pays an incredible 9.1%.
- And a rock-steady 6.5% dividend trading at a massive discount to NAV.
That’s not all, because I’m going to throw in one MORE free report:
Special Report #3: “Preferred Shares: Looking Past Common Dividends for 6.5% Income”
Preferred shares are manna for your retirement portfolio, but few folks pay much attention to them.
That’s too bad, because these steady income payers (which often throw off cash streams of 6%+) are wonderful hybrids: they can trade on a market, just like stocks, but they do so around a par value, like a bond.
You can amp up your gains if you buy preferreds through a CEF, like my favorite preferred-stock fund, which pays a rock-solid 6.5% today.
The high yield is great, but its best quality may be its lack of correlation with the stock market, giving you an extra layer of diversification (and safety).
The shares this fund owns are preferred in every sense—meaning it gets paid its fat dividends no matter what the broader market does.
Now there’s just one more thing I’d like to include…
