Get an extra dose of performance with ALTY
Benchmark Treasury yields rise across the board as inflation fears continue to swirl through financial markets. Even so, the benchmark 10-year yield might not be enough for what fixed income investors are looking for these days.
“The yield on the 10-year Treasury is rapidly approaching 3%, a level not seen since late 2018. Investors know that rapidly rising rates spell trouble for stocks and the economy,” Barron notes. “But there may be less to worry about than investors think.”
“The 10-year yield is considered the benchmark for mortgages and the discount rate used to calculate the present value of future cash flows,” adds Barron’s. “What is striking now is how quickly it has increased.”
Get more income
Investors looking for more yield may want to try overseas. More specifically, the ETF Global X SuperDividend Alternatives (ALTY) definitely worth a look, especially with its 30-day SEC yield of 6.79% as of April 22.
Unlike safe-haven debt like Treasury yields, ALTY offers bond investors exposure to various sources, such as real estate and business development companies (BDCs). ALTY seeks to track the price and yield performance of the Indxx SuperDividend® Alternatives Index, which is comprised of securities that rank among the highest dividend yielding securities in each eligible category of alternative income investments, at time of index reconstitution, as defined by the index provider.
ALTY offers you:
- High Income Potential: ALTY invests in some of the best performing securities across a variety of alternative asset classes, potentially increasing a portfolio’s return.
- Monthly distributions: ALTY makes distributions on a monthly basis, providing a regular source of income for a portfolio.
- An alternative solution: ALTY invests in four different alternative income segments: real estate, MLPs and infrastructure, private equity and BDCs, and fixed income and derivative strategies, potentially serving as a comprehensive alternative allocation of a wallet.
