Dividends Paying Up
REVEALED: A blockbuster portfolio that sets you up for steady gains—and HUGE cash payouts—in any market
Stop me if this has happened to you:
You’re holding a stock like Exxon Mobil (XOM), which paid a “generous” 4.9% dividend in January 2020.
Then the bottom fell out, with the stock plunging far faster than the average S&P 500 name in the recent crash:
XOM Crushes Income-Seekers
A 52% drop! That’s a complete disaster: in just under three months, Exxon wiped out nearly 11 years of dividend payments!
I know what you’re going to say next: “Brett, plenty of other S&P 500 stocks have fallen hard, too.”
You’d be right.
But we know most of those names will start to bounce back as soon as we get the slightest glimpse of a light at the end of the tunnel.
I simply can’t say the same for Exxon.
This “dividend disaster” was already paying far more in dividends than it brought in via cash flow before this panic hit!
When the inevitable dividend cut comes—and it will—this stock will go into free-fall, stealing the retirement dreams of many regular folks.
Your best bet? If you own this dog now, sell yesterday!
Exxon is far from alone. Other so-called “safe” household names have crushed everyday investors’ nest eggs (and income streams) even faster. Like Macy’s (M), which flopped 61% in just the first three months of 2020—nearly triple the drop of the S&P 500:
Macy’s “Wile E. Coyote” Stock
That fast-motion flameout cost regular people trying to scrape together enough cash for a decent retirement over 7 years’ worth of the retailer’s dividend payouts!
Let Me Offer You the Safety of 9.4% Dividends
Look, I’m not sharing these stories to scare you. We all know that, these days, we can scare ourselves easily enough on our own.
I’m sharing them to reassure you that there is a safer way to invest, while bringing in a life-changing dividend that more than triples the tiny, precarious payout you’re likely stuck “grinding it out” with.
The key is the 5 stocks in my “Recession-Resistant” portfolio, which I’m going to GIVE you today.
These 5 income wonders deliver 2 things blue-chip pretenders like Exxon and Macy’s never could:
- Rock-solid (and growing) 9.4% average cash dividends.
- INCREDIBLE price discounts that help steady their stocks in a downturn, giving you peace of mind while you’re collecting their massive payouts.
These days, when the Dow can easily plummet a stomach-churning 1,000 points (or more) in a single trading session, I’m sure a steady—and growing—9.4% in cash every single year has a lot of appeal.
And remember, 9.4% is just the average! One of these titans pays a steady 13%!
Think about that for a second: buy this amazing stock now and every single year, 13% of your original buy boomerangs back to you in CASH. Fast-forward just 6 years 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 past meltdowns, doling out huge cash dividends the entire time.
I’ll reveal 5 “recession-resistant” dividends in a moment. First, let’s talk about why I’m showing them to you today …
Winter Is Here
I know I’m not going to surprise you when I say that a recession is on its way. It’s just a question of whether it will be short and sharp, or will drag on for months.
But let’s stop right here for a moment, because I have to tell you something before we go one sentence further.
The current situation does 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 bit of bad news on the pandemic front could come along and wipe you out the moment you do.
You’ve likely experienced that feeling before. If you already panic-sold as this crash unfolded, you’re likely feeling it right now. 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!
At times like this, we need to keep our income stream going and our nest egg intact. Which is where my 5 “recession-resistant” plays come in. Thanks to their bargain valuations, massive (and growing) dividends (up to 13%!) and records of surfing through previous meltdowns, they’re perfect additions to your portfolio now.
Here’s the best part: even if the recession doesn’t materialize or is short-lived, these ridiculously undervalued “recession-resistant” plays are poised to soar even higher.
Think about that for a moment: you’re getting built-in upside, downside “insurance” and a 9.4% average dividend here. That payout is way 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” income 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 crashing, these 5 surefire dividend plays are already starting to catch the attention of income-starved investors. Some are already moving in. And you can bet that on even slightly better news on the pandemic, the rest will pile in.
And by that time, it will be too late.
I’ll give you the full scoop on these 5 “recession-resistant” plays in a few seconds. First, I want to show you how you can protect and grow your nest egg with my best contrarian “action plan” for a meltdown.
Let’s start with …
The One 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 the other scares we’ve seen in the last 10 years (maybe you don’t even have to imagine).
I’m sure, for example, you know someone who sold at the bottom during the 2008/09 financial crisis.
If so, these folks have missed out on a 340%+ GAIN since, even with this latest crash. And now that we’re all 12 years older, these losses are permanent: these investors simply don’t have enough time left to make them up.
I don’t want you to make the same mistake in today’s pullback. Which is why we’re going to invest in the 5 low-risk buys I mentioned earlier.
These 5 “recession-resistant” wonders give you the best of both worlds: a 9.4% CASH dividend that grows year in and year out, with your feet firmly planted on a share price that holds its own 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, we’re going to look in a corner of the market far too few people bother with: investments with market caps between $1 billion and $4 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, these smaller fry 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, “recession-resistant” payouts.
I’ll give you the specifics on 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 recession-resistant.
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 Contrarian Income Report portfolio throws off an outsized 10.5% average dividend—and many of my picks deliver even bigger cash streams, like 13.4%, 13.0% and even 13.7%.
With payouts like that, you could retire on dividends alone on just $500K!
Then you could do what everyone would love to do right now: tune out the market’s daily gyrations entirely! Because as long as your payouts are safe, who cares what stocks get up to from day to day?
Now let’s get back to the ignored corner of the market I want to introduce you to for massive “recession-resistant” dividends. It all starts with a very special kind of fund (and no, I’m not talking about overhyped ETFs):
7%+-Paying Closed-End Funds Perfect for a Rocky Market
Instead of settling for classic 3% or 4% payers, you can double your payouts (or better) right now by moving to the core of my “recession-resistant” portfolio: 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 4% yields for the Gabelli Dividend & Income Fund’s (GDV) 12.7% 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. And as I said above, CEFs form the core of my “recession-resistant” portfolio. I’ll highlight each and every one of my picks for you in a moment.
These “slam dunk” income buys pay dividends as high as 13%!
And here’s where their “recession-resistant” 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 vastly reduced. Even if the market takes another tumble, these two top-notch funds are perfectly positioned to hold their own … and we’ll enjoy those yields up to 13%.
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 favorite CEFs, which I’ve packed into a free special report, in a minute—but first, let me tell you about a very special stock you’ll also want to buy now: it gives our nest egg stability, upside and a fast-growing income stream to boot.
This 300% Dividend Grower Was Born
in the Great Depression
Our other “recession-resistant” play involves a stock whose dividend is not only growing but accelerating.
It’s a small Cleveland-based lender that knows how to survive (and thrive) in a market crash: its founders, a husband-and-wife-team founded the bank in 1938, to help the city’s struggling Eastern European immigrants.
Fast-forward 70 years, and the bank decided to offer its first dividend payout … in the middle of the Great Recession. It then went on a tear, driving its payout 300% higher in the last five years.
This Bank Can’t Get Cash Out the Door Fast Enough
This bank is already well-capitalized, but it’s got another “secret ATM” waiting in the wings that few people are paying attention to.
That would be the fact that, when my pick went public back in 2007, it only sold 31.7% of its shares, and it’s still holding the other 68% in what’s called a mutual holding company (MHC). So, at a time of its choosing, it can start unloading those shares for extra cash!
That’s not all: it’s been steadily buying back the shares it has issued, helping support their value as it does. And because it doesn’t pay dividends on the shares held by its MHC, it’s earning far more than it needs in order to cover its 6.7% payout!
I expect the bank to “make a statement” in the near future by raising that dividend in the midst of this panic.
In summary, any serious dividend investor should own this stock, for 4 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 6.7% dividend that’s surging.
- Its payout is easily covered by cash flow.
Now let’s discuss how you’ll get exclusive “members-only access to my complete “Recession-Resistant Portfolio” today, including stock names, tickers and buy prices.
Cash Payouts Up to 13%, 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.
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 “Recession-Resistant” portfolio …
Yours FREE: “5 ‘Recession-Resistant’ Dividends Paying Up to 13%”
Inside you’ll find the ticker symbol, my buy-up-to price and in-depth backstory on each of these 5 recession-proof buys. You get full details on all the plays I touched on just now, including:
- The bank with too much money: an overcapitalized financial institution is exactly what you want to hold when markets go haywire. And this one has so much cash it can’t kick it out the door fast enough! It’s raised its payout 300% in the last 5 years and has a “secret ATM” it can use to generate even more cash whenever it needs it
- The closed-end fund trading at a massive double-digit discount that throws a floor under the share price while we pocket its outsized 13% dividend!
- This CEF is the ultimate “safety-first” play! It pays a tax-free 6.3% dividend that could be worth 8% or more to you, depending on your tax bracket. It holds municipal bonds, backed by state and local governments. It’s cheap now, because investors have tossed “munis” out with everything else in their dash to cash. Let’s take the other side of that deal and start tapping this giant, tax-free dividend now!
- Another “recession-resistant” CEF paying a steady 11%. 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 massive (and temporary) double-digit discount!
- A 9.9% payer that crushes stocks! It’s easily outperformed US equities since inception in 1993, and it pays your dividend every single month, too! It offers a lower-risk way to diversify beyond the US, a critical step for safeguarding your portfolio in today’s wild markets.
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 9.4% 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 full Contrarian Income Report service for a no-risk “test drive.”
I created Contrarian Income Report to help investors uncover overlooked income plays before Wall Street and the mainstream herd bid them up.
Every new investment I recommend pays 6% or better, including 6 stocks in the service’s portfolio that each deliver over 10% income now. And as I said earlier, our entire portfolio sports an average yield of 10.5%.
Meanwhile, the S&P 500 pays a meager 2.3% on average, and the 10-year Treasury bond much less than 1%. 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…

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.

Special Report #2: “Monthly Dividend Superstars: 11%+ Yields With Double-Digit 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:
- A 13.7% 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 15% dividend.
- And a rock-steady 11% 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 8.6% 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 8.6% today.
The high yield is great, but its best quality may be its lack of correlation with the stock market. And because we’re talking about preferred shares here, we go to the front of the line when it comes to dividends, meaning our payouts are a lot safer than those of “common” shareholders.
Now there’s just one more thing I’d like to include…
