I was wondered about dividend paying stock or best dividend etf to generate monthly dividend.thanks

I would suggest, depending on amount of money available, various stocks that pay quarterly, but pay in different months so that you get a monthly check. You could get 12 checks a year with just 3 stocks.

Why is BAB listed under the 'Muni Nat'l Bond: Long Term Cat Average' category? Isn't it a taxable bond fund, i.e., the distributions are treated as ordinary income?

Charles Rotblut from IL posted over 4 years ago:

Hi Robert,

The fund is listed under Muni Nat'l Bond because, according to Morningstar, it invests in taxable municipal bonds.
