Bert’s April Dividend Income Summary

Another month bites the dust!  2016 is officially 33% over everyone!   The market began showing signs of weakness  towards the tail end of the month and it seems like every dividend investor had a collective sigh of relief.  There were two stocks that I have been big fans of for a while that finally had a nice pullback, so they earned a spot on my Watch List.  The don’t have the highest yield, but they are all star companies in their industry.  Let’s hope the slide continues for Visa and Starbucks.   Back to business, now that I have received my final April dividend income summary.
