Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star arisktaker, tapped TICC as a particularly attractive income opportunity:

[C]urrently paying an 11.69% dividend. Closed-end investment company. Provides capital to non-public, small & medium-sized, technology companies. Company also has warrants of other equity instruments [in] some of the companies it lends to. No insider purchases or sales in the last 12 months. Should do well in a recovering economy.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, TICC may not be your top choice.
