Currently have some investment in direct property (Rent)
and direct rescourse stocks. (none pay dividends).
I am looking at investing some more in an area where some passive income can be derived when investing in the capital side of it.
Some of the miners pay very small dividend yields except Zinifex i think but they are $18+ last i recall.
Anyone have any suggestions where i should be looking or considering eg are managed funds better for income producing...?
Borrowed funds are going to be used...Want to continue building on this for income in the future....
If one is relying on dividends for their income are the dividends of a company reliable.
I probably would like to start with companies that are fully franked.
What is considered a good yield and how is it calculated? Where do i find out when the Dividends are paid?
Is there another way say holding an option so you have better leverage but still get the dividend?
Am i considering the right area to start..
