Show synopsis If you are like most investors, your portfolio is probably dominated by long-term investments designed to provide returns for future use. If you would like to learn how to boost your current income without sacrificing the security of long-term investments, look no further than this unique and informative book. Financial expert David Scott does not offer get-rich-quick schemes or risk-free investment options. Instead, he clearly presents valuable information and realistic advice that will allow you to make informed decisions about investments designed to produce returns quickly. Six detailed chapters feature information on investing in Money Markets, Mutual Funds, Preferred Stocks, Annuities, U.S. Treasury Bonds and Bills, Tax-exempt Bonds, Corporate Bonds and Real Estate Investment Trusts. Also included is a glossary that defines terms associated with current-income investing - terms that often intimidate but that really represent simple concepts. David L. Scott is a professor of accounting and finance at Valdosta State University in Valdosta, Georgia. He holds master's and doctoral degrees in economics and has written more than 20 books on financial topics.
