I just trying to “preserve my wealth” and come-up with stream of income as I am facing retirement in a few years. I started to build my basket with DUK – 5% divy , good utility co. Next is GE – 3% div. blue chip. I’d like to know how reliable dividend would be from NMFC and risk factor, they seems to be a young company with unproven record paying dividend.
