CenturyLink, Now Lumen, Does Not Have A Payout Problem
CenturyLink, now Lumen, is one of the best income propositions on the market outside beleaguered exposures like US oil.With the terminal decline of much of its consumer and a good portion of its non-consumer businesses, it's hard to give it a value, but its dividend is definitely sustainable.Even if the rebranding does nothing, the company is transitioning well enough to be a great portfolio income generator, even when writing-off income from terminal businesses.With relative resilience as a telecoms player to the eventualities of COVID-19, we see very good reason to pick it up.

Invest In These 3 High Yield Stocks If You Think Interest Rates Will Stay Low
Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell has pledged to hold interest rates near zero until the US economy reaches 4% unemployment and 2% average inflation. In all likelihood, it will take a very long time (6+ years) to reach that goal, if we reach it at all before the next recession.

Here are three high-yielding dividend stocks that offer safe income streams and should benefit from the low-rates environment.

Good News, COVID Are Cases Back On The Decline
Daily U.S new COVID cases are now on a steady decline in the U.S with all major states seeing improvements. This increases the odds that some lock-down efforts will soon be lifted, a necessary step to save many struggling small businesses. While the worst of COVID may be in the past, a wave of recent data suggests the economy is now in an endogenous demand-driven recession. With consumer and businesses spending on the decline, white-collar layoffs are becoming far more common which should lead to a longer but less intense economic slowdown. Overall, the vast majority of stocks appear to have far more downside risk than upside potential despite the improvement in COVID statistics.
