3400 Companies this year are profitable and ready to write some dividend checks to their share holders. How are you positioning yourself to get some of these dividend checks. 3400 companies all writing checks once per quarter.... that makes 13600 times their accountants sit down and put pen to checkbook so to speak. I'm not sure about you but that is a lot of checks and We here are always looking forward to getting some, as many as we can.
