GECCL ADD. ISD SELL.

July 15, 2018.  Wall Street continues to believe in Trump.  Altho SPY/DOW has been consolidating so far in 2018, the dividend paying positions that we like continue paying us. In contrast, the Trump haters, Hollyweird elitists, CNN, and drunken British protestors just don’t get it.  They simply refuse to acknowledge the good economic programs that […]
