BALTIMORE ( Stockpickr) -- Investors have already gotten a big wake up call in September: Central banks are willing to dump money into the system, even if it comes at the expense of returns for income-focused investors. If you're an income investor, I hope you're taking note.We're already in a toxic environment for income investors. When inflation is higher than low-risk bond investments, there's no other word to describe what's going on. And the money-printing being teased out by the Fed and the ECB only looks to jack that spread between inflation and interest rates even higher.
