True, but there often is a conflict of interest. If you haven't noticed all the goldbugs going crazy over the collapse of the dollar, it is usually because they have some skin in the game in gold as well. Every heard of Jonathan Lebed? (pump and dump) If somebody has some of the stock they are suggesting, they could perhaps be trying to inflate the value above what he feels is fair and get rid of it for a great short term gain... it's why there are Chinese Walls in companies.

DVY DVM is just two of many ETF dividend funds.
I am not suggesting either but below website has many to ponder over.

NUV and MUA was a couple muni funds I held when my earnings were high.
Anyone with much money invested should never put most of your money
with any one manager/broker. Of course you knew that already, why would anyone
put all 2 mil of assets in one fund, not a real situation to compare a 30% loss
or whatever loss one fund may have.

If this is a response to my earlier post, then I'd have to disagree. Someone could conceivably be tricked into thinking Josh Peters has the secret to success and invest all of their money using his methods, if not his exact portfolio picks. If one is really trying to get 5-7% yield from their investments, I'd say it is risky, but you really do have to take risks to get that kind of yield from equities. I wouldn't personally put all of my eggs in one basket, but someone might. Which is why taking this much risk in a retirement income strategy could prove dangerous.
