Welcome to the 6th year of Dividend Income Investor.
Before buying any investment, go to Core Portfolio for a listing of current positions.

Donnelly is in the “old” industry of printing and is in the process of trying to turn itself around. But it’s not working as well as we had hoped when be bought this bond. We are selling the corporate bond that we hold in the Core Portfolio. The next dividend payment is not until later this year. And it does not mature until 2024 at which time we get our money back. But we just don’t want to take the risk and wait that long.
We have been receiving dividends and have a reasonable total return profit, even when you consider the bond price has declined. We do not want to hold investments in declining industries. SELL.
Our recent purchase of CTL has taken off, up a dollar on Thursday. It is still ok to buy.
GBAB is starting to turn up after plunging in January. It pays 7%. The momentum indicators look positive. It is going ex-dividend May 14 and you may be able to buy at lower prices. $21.40 would be a reasonable buy limit order.
Listeners getting tired of CNN fake news hate speech. LOLOL

From Dennis Miller: comedian and podcaster.
“But right now, you can’t wake up everyday and say he had an affair with a porn star and a playmate and that’s why he needs to be impeached.” Miller said. “It doesn’t work since Bill Clinton.”
