High Dividend Yield Income ETF's

Here is a good list of some high yield Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) that I researched. I was looking specifically for funds that had minimal declines during the Covid crash in Jan-March 2020. I looked at these closely and have a high level of confidence in them as sustainable with that limited volatility. The Pimco one PFN I already own and it had a decline but I like the yield and even with the expense ratio it is a very good fund for me that I have had for years. The Vanguard BLV was pretty steady during those volatile months in 2020. First Trust Preferred Securities and Income ETF (FPE) is actually an actively managed fund. I like that flexiblity in a fund. Here are the funds I found and their current dividend yield.

Vanguard Long-Term Bond Index Fund ETF Shares (BLV) yield of 3.17%

First Trust Preferred Securities and Income ETF (FPE) 4.83%

PIMCO Income Strategy Fund II (PFN) yield of 9.2%

Invesco KBW Premium Yield Equity REIT ETF (KBWY) 8.67%

Fedex FDX

I bought some Fedex FDX in my long-term account a week or two ago. I posted it on Twitter then. I liked the chart and it has a history or running after earnings reports. I haven't seen many small-caps I like with SPY QQQ leading the pack lately. I am looking at high yield ETFs and will post some of my favorites soon. I have always liked the Pimco (PFN) but I have a good list now too. I also am looking at stocks with high yield like ticker SUN and T

FIT Merger Arbitrage

 FIT is getting bought out for $7.35 a share cash. It's currently in the $6.30s. That is a 15% spread. There is some uncertainty regarding it going through. It seems to be mostly concern in Europe I have been reading. I think the risk reward is there especially if it goes to a 20% return or more. I bought a little around here.

PRTS Performance, Longterm Plays

 PRTS has now become my best performer ever with over a 1,000% return. I've been posting that one on Twitter for awhile. I believe initially it was around net tangible asset value when I found it in the $1 to $2 range. I noticed it as a turnaround play with focused management. 

Awhile back for long-term positions I bought Carnival (CCL), Hotel (SOHO), RIG. More recently I added online education plays EDUC, TWOU, XOM for the dividend, gold/ silver via CEF and Smith and Wesson SWBI.
