  1. I love seeing the raises for doing nothing except being a stock holder! It is awesome. Not huge raises but they are raises none the less. I recently received 10 percent raises from both ENB and D. Two companies that I think you would be interested in as they have very good track records of increasing dividends. One of companies i watching closing too is BLK.
    I was reading one of your other post from November that mentioned you got paid 12 times from a 11 different companies. Just think if this was 20 years ago you would have received 12 different checks from those companies and you would have had to go to bank to deposit them. When you would physically see those checks just a stack of them to be deposited would be insane. Keep the good Work Doug!
