If you are an employee, your tax-filing deadline for 2015 returns is May 2. If you haven’t filed yet, better get on with it!

In March 2012, I launched a High-Yield Portfolio for readers seeking above-average cash flow and who were willing to live with a higher level of risk. I cautioned at the time, and continue to do so, that this is a 100% equity portfolio with no bonds to cushion losses when stock markets retreat.

Also, a high percentage of the payments from this portfolio will receive favourable tax treatment as eligible dividends or return of capital.
