Why Royalties May Be the Best Income Investment on Earth

Are royalties the perfect income investment?

Intellectual property assets with a strong track record of consistent earnings may, in fact, be the perfect investment for those seeking income.

What’s a royalty?



A payment made to the owner of intellectual property every time that IP is used. The owner collects payments over and over again for an asset that is created once.

Imagine this… you’re a songwriter. You write songs for comedy films and, it turns out, these movies become classics; the types of films that people watch many times over a period of years.

One of these films–even 20 years after its release date–still airs on TV nearly every week. People watch the movies on iTunes, Amazon Video and even still buy them on DVD.

And, every time one of the films gets purchased downloaded or aired on TV you get paid.

While the royalties aren’t enough to retire on, they’re nothing to sneeze at either–$22,627 in the last 12 months alone.

What’s better – the income has gone up at least 15% per year, every year since 2011.

I’m telling you this now because we’ve been mentioning REITs in Boom & Bust of late, and so far the results have been solid. But what I want to mention today is potentially even better.

If you believe in the REIT story… and expect REIT prices to go higher… and someone told you that you could buy a portfolio of REITs for 90 cents on the dollar… wouldn’t you jump at the opportunity?

Absolutely you would!

You’d be crazy not to!

Well, that’s exactly the situation today in the world of closed-end funds. And in Peak Income, the new newsletter I write with Rodney, I recently recommended a closed-end REIT fund trading for about 90% of net asset value.

Out of fairness to the readers who pay for that information, I can’t share the specific stock with you. But I can definitely tell you how I chose this fund and what you should look for when evaluating closed-end funds on your own.
