Lanny said it best in his stock purchase article…the month of May was actually wild!  Every day presented a new twist, turn, and market swing.  I would transfer cash to my brokerage and get ready to make a purchase.  Then boom, the market would swing upward.  Despite the madness, the dividend income continued to flow.  After all, that’s part of the beauty of dividend investing.   Lanny published great dividend income results this month.  As always, he is a tough act to follow.
