Several shares that I have been looking at are shown as having dividend yields of over 15%. Is this sustainable?

Beware of high historic dividend yields as in many cases they provide little or no indication of future dividend levels. For example, the yield may be high because the share price has collapsed or because the company paid a special or one off dividend.

I have a mortgage fund with one of the major managers that has restricted redemptions. What is the outlook for these funds?

Most of the major mainstream mortgage funds are in reasonable shape and are not suffering unusually high levels of arrears or delinquencies in their loan portfolios. The hope is that they will gradually ease restrictions as confidence returns to the credit markets.
