In the current economic environment, most investors are taking a step back when they encounter a security that pays a dividend yield in excess of 10%. That's because investors are afraid that anything paying more than a 5% dividend is too good to be true.
Nothing could be farther from the truth.
In my Cash Machine advisory service, I comb through hundreds of income-generating ideas that are available to invest in to create a total portfolio that will pay a reliable stream of income even during the worst of times. My recommendations include companies whose business or underlying income-generating assets are fundamentally sound. That way, we're confident that our cash flow won't be radically interrupted when market volatility wreaks havoc on day-to-day valuations.
Everyone wants a guaranteed paycheck in the mail. That's why my Cash Machine service takes a two-tiered approach toward high-income markets. This way, aggressive and conservative investors both can invest in various assets paying three times what their bank does on guaranteed fixed-income securities. Clearly, income investors are all about getting paid well -- with an emphasis on protecting the rock. Capital gains come when the market is in an uptrend. During down times, steady income becomes the focus when in non-guaranteed income assets.
This two-tiered approach involves two lists of income securities at Cash Machine: the Aggressive High-Yield Portfolio and Conservative High-Yield Portfolio. The Aggressive High-Yield Portfolio will focus on high-yield, higher-risk investments paying yields of 10% to 25%. The Conservative High-Yield Portfolio will focus on high-yield, lower-risk investments paying yields of 5% to 10%. Each portfolio is targeted to have no more than 20 to 25 picks as I believe this approach will serve a much wider audience of risk-averse income investors, especially in these uncertain times, while still providing the ultra-high-yield strategies in which Cash Machine is rooted.
Overall, my goal with Cash Machine is to provide all income investors -- aggressive and conservative -- with high-yield investments that fit perfectly with their risk tolerance. After all, income investors can't live on zero funds.
Here, I've laid out a step-by-step plan to help you get started with Cash Machine, providing information on all the vital resources and tools you'll have at your disposal as a valued subscriber. Let's take a closer look at each of these tools and how they can serve you as we profit together from high-yield investments.
Great news! You've already taken the first step to getting started with my Cash Machine service by visiting the subscriber-only website. The Cash Machine website contains everything you need, and you can access it with the simple click of a mouse. On the site, you'll find archives of my monthly issues and weekly updates, as well as alerts, both the Conservative High-Yield Portfolio and the Aggressive High-Yield Portfolio and my Watch List, among other resources.
To access the website, you'll need to create a unique username and password. Setting it up is simple and should only take a minute or two. All you'll need is the order number you received when you ordered online. But remember, if you're already a subscriber to any other InvestorPlace Media newsletter service, you can use your existing username and password to access the Cash Machine website.
Next, check out the Cash Machine Portfolio page on the website. It contains both my Aggressive High-Yield Portfolio and Conservative High-Yield Portfolio. Both portfolios are filled with my recommendations, buy limits, current advice, dividend yields and ex-dividend dates. In addition, each portfolio has a section at the top that highlights our new buys, recent sells and Top Buys. The Top Buys are my current favorite picks for investing new money right now.
Then, read my Weekly Updates. These contain my current insights on the markets and economy as well as my most recent thoughts on our existing recommendations. It's important to stay on top of our individual investments and how what's happening in the marketplace that could affect them. That's why I want to be in contact with you on a weekly basis. Every Thursday after the market closes, I'll send you an email letting you know that the most recent update has been posted to website and is available for you to read.
You will receive my Monthly Issues on the second Thursday of each month. The in-depth monthly issue gives me a chance to really dive into the high-yield income markets and discuss my very latest advice on our investments, my new recommendations, and my outlook for the economy and market. I can discuss our current strategy at length and review the best ways to keep a steady cash flow.
So on the second Thursday each month after the market closes, I'll send you an email letting you know that the monthly issue has been posted to the website and is available for you to read.
Then, be sure to check out whether I've sent any new Alerts to my subscribers recently. As you know, the markets can move very quickly, and these changes and developments can happen at a moment's notice. Because these events have the potential to affect our recommendations, flash alerts give me the ability to contact you between my regular monthly issues and weekly updates so I can provide you with the information that needs to be in your hands immediately or with important actions for you to take.
Please note: I'll send out an alert only when I believe there's crucial information that you need to know about or action that you need to take ASAP. I won't send an alert for every news event affecting our holdings.
Another integral part of your Cash Machine service is the Special Reports section on my website. Special Reports give me the opportunity to provide you with information that's critical to understanding how to successfully invest in high-yielding investments, and they're a great place to start for new subscribers. Each one contains an in-depth look at a particular topic, whether it's which stocks and funds to avoid, my top buys right now or a sector profile.
In addition to the website, weekly updates, monthly issues, both portfolios, alerts and special reports, there are a variety of other tools available to you as a Cash Machine subscriber. Let's take a brief look at some of the other resources available here.
Online Conferences: I want to touch base with my subscribers on a more personal level through webinars and teleseminars. These events will allow me to elaborate on important developments in our holdings, discuss our current strategy, exchange ideas and answer subscriber questions. I'll let you know when I'm planning to hold my next live event.
Questions & Answers: Many subscribers have questions about the service, strategy and our recommendations on a weekly basis, so I've created a section on the website where I'll answer questions that I think will be beneficial to most subscribers. If you ever have a question, be sure to submit it to me via the Ask Bryan page. I also include an Ask Bryan section in my monthly issues and occasionally in my weekly updates.
Compare & Contrast: For comparison reasons, Cash Machine monthly issues will include a table of guaranteed yields reflecting current yields as a way to compare risk-free investments versus recommendations within the Cash Machine service. You also can find the chart on the homepage. Having a handle on what Jumbo Certificates of Deposit, Treasury Bills, Treasury Notes, Ginnie Mae's and money markets are paying provides important reference points for investors stepping outside these traditional and ultra-safe investments. Knowing one's risk/reward level makes for a happy investor.
Watch List: There are so many investment opportunities out there that I'm always watching to see what areas, sectors and companies offer tantalizing investments. To help keep you up to date, I'll provide a list in my monthly issues of what I'm watching and researching. Sometimes these names will warrant a place in our Cash Machine portfolios; other times, they won't.
My goal with all of these valuable resources is to keep you well-informed every step of the way. There are promising and profitable opportunities for income investors, and I want to make sure you always have the advice and insights that you need to build your high-yield portfolio.
