NEW YORK ( Stockpickr) -- If you're counting on fixed-income investments to produce steady revenue streams coming in the door, then you can forget about the government. T-Bills and U.S. bonds offer some of the lowest payouts in memory, and if Fed chairman Ben Bernanke has his way, that will be the case for the next several years as well. He wants to keep rates very low to help the economy get up off of the mat.You could turn to the corporate bonds offered up by blue chip stocks. They're quite safe, and typically offer yields in the 3% to 6% range. But for some investors, that's not enough, especially when you can find investments that yield 10% or more.
