Welcome to the 6th year of Dividend Income Investor.

Before buying any investment, go to Core Portfolio to see a listing of current positions.

We bought UTF in January.  It goes ex-dividend today, and is a buy.  The technical momentum indicators are moving up.  Pays 8%.  Here is a link to the original post.



With the fake-news ultra-liberal press continuously dumping on Trump it is amazing that his job approval is 51%.  Altho the press and deep state is doing everything in their power to bring him down, half of the citizens are not buying into the continuing hate speech.


There is an article in SeekingAlpha which describes the current status of UTF.  It is going ex-dividend today and we will be adding to this position, probably on April 18.

Go this article if you want the details:

So we decided to recreate the chart using data JPM disclosed in its earnings supplement. What we found may explain why JPM “forgot” and keeps “forgetting” to add that particular slide. It shows that after bottoming in late 2015, JPM’s net credit card chargeoffs have been steadily rising, passing $1 billion as of Q2 2017, and as of Q1 2018 were at $1.17BN, back to levels last seen in June 2012 or nearly 6 years ago, suggesting that contrary to Jamie Dimon’s commentary, the US consumer is not doing all that hot after all.



One of those “interesting” stories that we come across.

The Associated Press
An average of 39 percent of U.S. Catholics attended church weekly during the heart of the Francis papacy, from 2014 to 2017, Gallup found in a survey released April 9, which represents a significant drop from the 45 percent of Catholics who attended weekly Mass from 2005 to 2008, in the early years of the Benedict pontificate.

Weekly Mass attendance among American Catholics had stabilized in the mid-2000s at around 45 percent, after falling sharply during the period comprising the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) and its aftermath, which many Catholics experienced as a time of confusion and upheaval.

The downward trend has resumed during the Francis years, falling more abruptly than it had since the 1970s.
