Fast Eddie's High Yielding Portfolio


The goal for the stock investments in this portfolio is high current yield with decent capital appreciation. The preservation of capital is paramount. The Canadian Income Trusts (a.k.a. Energy Trusts) offer a fertile ground for "bargains" since the Harper Administration's "Halloween Surprise" to begin taxing trusts in 2011 caused a deep 40% sell-off. In reality, many of the trusts will be able to continue offering tax-free yields well beyond 2011 through the use of tax pools from depletion , depreciation, etc. Other trusts with substantial operations in the USA will be converting to the MLP structure. And the recent take-over of a "weak" trust, PrimeWest Energy (PWI), at a 40% premium shows the intrinsic value of assets held by trusts.
