For certain sectors of the market, the last few quarters haven’t exactly been rosy. That’s because rising interest rates courtesy of the Federal Reserve has zapped much of the enthusiasm for high-yielding sectors.

From real estate investment trusts (REITs) and utilities to pipeline master limited partnerships (MLPs) – all have been on the downward slope as investors can now find higher yields in safer treasury bonds.

One of the hardest hit sectors could be the business development companies (BDCs).

But, despite the interest rate increases, the BDCs could be a big value right now. Offering gigantic yields, an ability to actually profit from rising rates as well as benefiting from some favorable regulations, the BDCs could be exactly what you need to supercharge your income portfolio.
