I really did lots of buying this month not every month will be like this. On the Buys I added $368.91

On May 9th due to concerns with the the ongoing stuff with OHI I sold out. I sold all 154 shares which got me $5633.32 and includes a 12 cent fee. This cost me $406.56.

Dividend Cuts I suffered my second dividend cut this year when VOD took 40% off there dividend. It cuts it from based off 138 shares $254.64 a year to $139.38 a loss of $106.26.

So between the Cuts the sell and the buys I am still heading into the last month and the beginning of the Second half I am in good health and still should be able to hit my goals
